when you get the background for the symbology used you might begin to ask questions.

Ok point taken you probberbly have reseached the symbology fine..
here is a question then what is your source?
The swastika is an ancient symbol that has been found worldwide, but it is especially common in India. Its name comes the Sanskrit word svasti (sv = well; asti = is), meaning good fortune, luck and well-being.
The swastika is most commonly used as a charm to bring good fortune (in which case the arms are bent clockwise), but it has a variety of religious meanings as well.
The right-hand swastika is one of the 108 symbols of the god Vishnu as well as a symbol of the sun and of the sun god Surya. The symbol imitates in the rotation of its arms the course taken daily by the sun, which appears in the Northern Hemisphere to pass from east, then south, to west. (It is also a symbol of the sun among Native Americans.)
The left-hand swastika (called a sauvastika) usually represents the terrifying goddess Kali, night and magic. However, this form of the swastika is not "evil" and it is the form most commonly used in Buddhism.
During the times of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament), the pentacle was the first and most important of the Seven Seals - an amulet whose seals represented the seven secret names of God. It was inscribed on King Solomon's ring, which is often called Solomon's Seal in error. Each point of the pentagram was also interpreted as referring to the five books of the Pentateuch - the first five books in the Hebrew Scriptures; the Torah.
In Christian times:
The five points of the pentagram have been interpreted as representing the five wounds of Christ (2 wrist, 2 ankle and 1 side).
The Roman Emperor Constantine used the pentagram in his seal and amulet. 14
It has been referred to as the Star of Bethlehem
It was used to symbolize the star which allegedly led three Zoroastrian astrologers to the baby Jesus; it was called the Three Kings' star.
the reason i would like you to watch the program is that i myself is in doubt i did go a little crazy in my last post admitted. now you ask wich symbology and i would start off with the skull and cross bones found on some of the orders, medals if youd like the reason why i told you if you knew the meaning of the symbology is that all the ranks medals ect is linked to royals IMO could be wrong it just terms like: the knight order or royal arch mason i think it was, becourse as you know the royals have been monarchs not very democratic IMO and a system using there terminology just makes me supicious IF you know what the royals represent in the old days..nothing good i would argue..
thats why i REALLY would like you to watch it still even if you don't belive it all there must be something...
and as far as i know the original masons where callede stone masons becourse they where from normal mason people (working class) and today at least where i live you have to be rich in order to join wich i view as a step in the wrong direction there by making it a possebility that it could be infiltrated at some loges
but lets start with the skull and bones motive...
after all much of the known knowlege today is gathered by top officials like aristrocrats who has connections hell just take the british cyclopidia Britanica and if someone disagree they are being accused as fruitcakes wierdos and anti goverment i just find it interesting if there is nothing to it why can't there be an open debate where people get a chance to defend themselves?
if you finally get to see their views on tv its put togehter so they look like loonies but if you have watched some programs like the michael tsarion and then see him on discovery scifi channel after you can see that he is being cut off...
..here i go again sorry ahmm the skull and cross bones it was i will look at some more and come with more questions later.
