"A wealthy young man, Cecil Rhodes, like John Ruskin believed that only the British elite could and should rule the world to the benefit and happiness of mankind.
Shortly after arriving at Oxford, Rhodes was initiated into Freemasonry at the Apollo University lodge No. 357. On April 17, 1877, he was raised a Master Mason in the same lodge. Rhodes also joined a Scottish Rite Lodge at Oxford called Prince Rose Croix Lodge No. 30.”
After being raised to Master Mason on April 17, 1877, Rhodes drafted a program for world dominion by the British race patriots.
To guarantee the funding from his vast wealth of his world vision for the British empire, Rhodes wrote in 1877 the first of seven wills that he composed over his lifetime. The first will called for the formation of a "secret society" whose primary function would be focused on returning England to her former glory.
When the society Rhodes had envisioned was finally organized after his death, its membership consisted only of English Freemasons. "The Round Table," as it was known, soon became the most powerful appendage of the British Brotherhood."

I am aware that Masons and Masonry are all too often the target for conspiracies and plots to take over the world etc. I am also aware that there are several very well educated Masons frequenting this site who seem to have a vast library of knowledge about there fraternity.
The bottom line is only Masons know the answer, so it is likely that the truth may never be public knowledge. Anyway, im not going to argue for or against these theories on this thread, but what i will say is this...
Its not surprising masons are always the suspects regarding these theories, for these reasons:
1) The Secrecy. (If there was a murder investigation in my neighbourhood, and I was the only person who refused to give information, that instantly makes me look like the suspect.)
2) The shere size and global coverage of Masonry. (with members from all social classes, in most countries would make an ideal platform for global conspiracies.)
3) The fact the general public dont understand the rituals and dogmas involved with freemasonry. (If Joe Average accidentally saw a Masonic ritual through a lodge window, he could be forgiven for thinking that some sort of satanic ritual was taking place.)
My point with 3 is that people are genrerally afraid of what they dont understand. I have read a small amount about Masonic rituals, and (please correct me if im wrong) but I believe they are purely symbolic rituals that dont "raise the devil" or "steal human souls" etc.
Perhaps the best way for Masons to remove the suspicion and accusations that surround their fraternity, is to educate the masses on their customs, rituals, purpose etc. Have an "open lodge" day or authorise a documentary that tells the truth about themselves.
AllseeingEYE eagerly awaits constructive comments from both masons and non-masons.

Also, he Masons use certain positive knowledge in a negative way for example they use the planetary movment and sun cycles and the earths merdian ley lines and vortex grids and exploit them by syncing events to them at the right time for example, a certain national or international event will take place at the time the earths energy field is such a way to benifit the event the best becuase the earths energy field effects human behaviour, thought and emotion. It basicly dictates it.
