Perhaps it is true, perhaps it is not. They are freemasons, but who says freemasons are evil. One of my idols is a freemason (Lon Duquette) and he is pretty good. I used to be "Obsessed" with that topic, but then one night I asked myself "How can this help me?" The answer was only silence. You might say Awareness, but so what if you are aware of these things and tend to rebel against the government. There is still a chance it might not be real. To me, it only gives on paranoia. I used to be paranoid of this topic really much and if you sum it up, it does more bad than it does good. It's a good topic to study at your leisure time, but I wouldn't take it TOO seriously. It might be real, it might not be. There are signs everywhere, but then again, those signs are the sings that we ALL use, namely the pentagrams, such and such. Secret orders such as Freemasonry, Rosicrucians,etc. Do not tell their secrets and there is a moral code of secrecy in which they abide in, that is why they are always subjected to "conspiracy theories." After all, "Man may imagine, visualize, and fabricate the likes of the unknown, yet once experienced holds far from the truth in which he had made."
I became very interested in this subject too and was fascinated when I came across the card game, there is such a thing as too many coincidences I think. Also in a lot of films and books these occurances have been mentioned, portrayed before they happened. Makes you think does't it.
My opinion of these coincidences is that they aren't coincidences, but also not caused by the illuminati or freemasons or anyone. Rather, as I see it, time can be compared to a river, with each event that occurs creating ripples that, if big enough (because the even is major enough) can have an impact on the past as well as the future, in the form of dreams, epiphany's, and such. Perceptive people would pick up on these ripples, and could then incoroporate portions of what they see, sense, dream, whatever, into their work, be they writers, artists, actors, directors, or what have you. Hence we see events taking place in literature or fiction that then actually occurs at a later date. A good example of this is a book written ten years before the sinking of the titanic, the plot of which was the largest ocean liner ever built, called the "Titania" is sailing its maiden voyage across the Atlantic when it hits an iceburg and is sunk, killing the majority of the people on board. The author of this book was one of those killed when the actual Titanic sunk.
I know and understand it's a late post, but I had to say a few things.
1. I MYSELF am a MasterMason although don't like or enjoy the name It is one of my titles so I have used it, may I include we are not satanic or anything like that freemasonry is a well established worldwide fraternity.
2. If the illuminati were real, they are a group of enlightened people, not satanic, demonic if they were in politics good for them, they worked to get the name they have, so it must be a worthy one.
3.if there are any real political masterminds, it would be the bilderberg group (unknown spelling) they are a group of political figureheads and the meetings are confidential.
