JFK said that there should be no secret societies - what do you think about that?

I once believed very similarly to your sentiments. I later realized that I was in ignorance, because I was only feeding my own confirmation bias with all of the out-of-context screenshots of handshakes and triangles. I realized that not all clubs and not all handshakes are Masonic, and that certain symbols are actually shared by different groups who prescribe different meanings and interpretations to these symbols. Moreover, I found that the vast majority of known Freemasons are overwhelmingly good and far from malevolent.
The grand unveiling of the Georgia Guidestones occurred on March 22, 1980, more than 30 years ago. Yet, very little awareness of it really circulated, until maybe 2005 when the environmental movement became such a hot topic. Throughout this time, though no one knows who actually commissioned its construction; all that is known is that a man by the name of R.C. Christian wanted to build it. “R.C.” is most likely short for “the Rose and Cross” of Rosicrucianism, which is simply the precursor to what is known as Freemasonry today. Not surprisingly a tablet not too far from the monument reads, “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason”, which echoes the writing of one Thomas Paine, a prominent 18th century Freemason.
