From the beginnings of recorded history we tend to find that secret societies have been an integral and natural part of human civilization.
The mere meaning of a secret society is basically meetings that are not open to the public and their written document are kept confidential. Secret
societies are organized hierarchically, the decision making powers rest solely one one individual and one individual alone Outside of the secret
societies inner group, they may have a much larger hierarchical structure which would operate in the open and produce a lot of documentation of its
broader operations. One hypothesis that has been suggested for these secret societies is that they are filtering and selecting psychopathic
individuals to carry out various deeds of the society and its leaders.
Many of our world governments intelligence agencies could be considered a secret society, as many of there covert missions are kept from the public
and they produce a great torrent of highly classified) and unclassified) documentation. Examples of these intelligence agencies would be America’s
CIA, the Israeli Mossad, the Russian KGB and Britons MI-6.
It is the same with nearly all corporations, they could be seen to be as organized as a secret society, with operative decision-making vested in a
hierarchical management group (CEO, Vice-presidents, Corporate sectaries etc) and board of directors, who and boards of directors, who design business
strategies in confidential meetings whose results are zealously guarded as trade secrets. (However, since the 1929 fiasco the SEC and public investors
have required some disclosure of financial results. These disclosure requirements have now been effectively voided for the most part, as shown by the
The most widely known examples of our cultures secret societies are what people would term today as occult societies. These are religions that have
attempted with varying success to make secrets out of there central doctrines as well as their meetings and procedures. Examples of such societies are
the Freemasons, Illuminati, Skull and Bones, Thule society, the Rosicrucians, the medieval Knights Templar, the Roman Catholic Jesuits and Opus Dei,
the Assassins and some other sects of Ismaili (Aga Khan) Muslims, the Essenes and other Hebrew mystery cults, and ancient Roman Mithraism. The names
of the deities of any particular occult society may vary from time to time and place to place, the underlying motifs and archetypes are generally
similar, and closely related to the pantheistic astral and tribal paganism of ancient Mesopotamia. This is the worship of Mithra (the Sun), Sin (the
Moon) and Lucifer (Venus), along with Ahura Mazda or Yahweh (the Great Architect of the Universe?) and Moloch and Baal, the tribal consorts of the
astral gods. Modern apologists for Freemasons and other occult secret societies argue that these ancient pagan gods are correctly interpreted today as
benevolent and altruistic symbols. However, in ancient history these same gods were portrayed as jealous and angry gods, actually psychopathic gods,
who would lie and kill without remorse in the pursuit of ultimate and eternal power, and who demanded the aroma of human sacrifice. In their choice to
preserve and venerate the memory of the psychopathic gods of ancient Mesopotamia, is modern psychopathic elite’s also revealing something about
Most modern human beings are convinced that these pagan gods passed into the dustbin of history two millenia ago, but we suspect that this may not be
the case. Repeatedly throughout history, the elite’s of the Great World Empire have been attracted to religious secret societies such as these,
which maintain a high regard for the ancient pagans. We submit that this is no coincidence.
In modern times we are also seeing a proliferation of elite secret societies which operate at an international level, such as the World Bank and IMF
and associated world economic meetings, and the Bilderberg society. Similar organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and
Trilateral Commission seem to operate on an open level, although it is difficult to know whether they might have a secretive core level. These
international (globalist) secret societies have an extraordinary and quite well-documented ability to attract wealthy and powerful individuals to form
their core membership, just as the religious secret societies also attract these same individuals. Furthermore, their memberships are often
interlocking, such as in corporate boards. As noted in Janis Irving's 1972 book "Victims of Groupthink", any committee or group (even one composed
entirely of non-psychopathic individuals) can fall prey to various faulty decision making processes. However, it should be clear that if a substantial
portion of any secret society were made up of psychopathic individuals, the decision-making processes would be further compromised to say the least.
Also just as clearly, such an organization is a good place to organize a conspiracy -- that is, an illegal or wrongful scheme perpetrated by two or
more persons acting in concert.
Any assessment of the power of the psychopathic tendency, in powerful individuals, dynasties, and secret societies, is basically a matter of
historical judgment over a broad sweep of time and across many events. Conspiracists have often been accused of "mining" the historical record for
odd factoids and tidbits that support some skewed and paranoid interpretation, and we do not wish to contribute to that syndrome. Our goal is to take
a patient and systematic overview of the broad sweep of history, and show that it is overwhelmingly consistent with our view.
