I'm sure there's lots of other reasons - I think those are pretty well justified to some degree tho
Do people feel the need to be in a secret society?
Im quite an open person I like transparency, I like to feel part of a group like most people, but have never felt like wanting to be part of anything that’s secret. Is it because these people fear ridicule? Or is it because their intentions.
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Indian Guides (probably don't have that anymore) brownies, Jedi, Masons and Trekkies(ers?) can all be considered secret societies.
