White Chapel, have you lost your mind?
Let's think about Secret Societies in general. What do they usually do. Stand against the accepted establishment is one common denominator. Rap is
used in many ways to shout down against government, and in some cases Religion (though admittedly some Rap is very religious, or denotes Religion as
the right path though the rapper finds him/herself unable to follow that path).
The Illumanati was about fostering new ideas and finding was to enhance the value of life through knowledge (see: Science) and as a result found an
enemy in the Church. The Mason's were found to be highly interested in the Economy and furthering of their community improvements, this is something
standard Government saw as rivaling in power (after all, if such improvements and wealth influenced the masses why would said masses follow the rulers
and governments? This could topple set Rulers, a risk and indirect attack).
So when Tupac, Snoop Dog, Dr. Dre, Eminem or even Bubba Sparx goes anti-establishment this very well ties into NWO ideals... even if the ideas are
purely the performers in no conjecture with any Order or Society.
Read Tupac's lyrics. The man is obviously educated (mostly self-educated through reading, which can be MISEDUCATED due to reading biased books,
*not saying he WAS Miseducated, merely speaking of the possibility if he did not balance his readings and make his own conclusions instead of being
indoctrined by one style and avoiding all others... I wasn't there reading to him so I don't know*) and shows it both in his Life and his Work.
As an Educated Man he knew how best to keep his business, not just staying a staple in music but venturing out into movies as well. Exposure is key
to entertainers, and he embraced this. As a Learned Man he also knew that with extra Exposure meant more outlets to get his message across.
He spoke of truths (his gang banging and disrespect for women who allowed themselves to be disrespected), he spoke of Ideals (I Bet 'Ya *That's
why they call you Bitch*) where he speaks of the mistakes of a female friend and why she is percieved as she is... because she ALLOWS it. If she lived
a righteous life, they couldn't label her as such. The fault is hers for choosing such a path. The point of the song, surprisingly (given Raps track
record) is DON'T BE A HO. And coming from an inner-city male known to use women, at that. However, same user had great respect for his mother... a
woman. He speaks of forgiveness (Is There A Heaven For A Gangsta?).
He was very inflamatory and very anti-government... at least the government he was living within. I'm not sure if he had alternatives, better ideas
for society and how to implement them, but he had serious issues with how things were being run... especially in the inner cities. He showed genious
and a high intelligence.
So, what is being said is that a Highly Intelligent person who is Anti-Establishment can't be brought into a New World Order or Secret Society?
Such a society could have many uses for such individuals. A complete usage of the individual, accept him in merely to use as a tool. Actual
acceptance of the individual, using his abilities and allowing him to bring his own worth to the table to aid the cause. Setting up the Individual for
To say that people of intelligence, ingenuity, and an agenda can not be accepted into a Society because of (was it Race or Profession?) is
completely missing the common denominators between the individuals and the society. They go hand in hand.
