In discussion of the occult, and especially occult history, the ideas would be incomplete if they did not take secret societies into account. Quickly, let’s dispel with some misconceptions here. This is not going to be a rant about the “New World Order,” although the relevancy of this topic will be addressed briefly. As well, this is not in any way meant to sympathize with secret societies, but simply to state the facts as they seem to be presented. The fact of the matter is that there is an equation between NWO politics and secret societies, but it is only in this general sense; and drawing any specific conclusions to groups like Freemasonry and the Illuminati tends to oftentimes convolute the understanding of the matter with half-truths. When discussing the New World Order and secret societies, it is much more poignant to discuss Bilderberg, Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the like.
From an etymological point of view, there isn’t even any real evidence for a group that actually calls themselves the “Illuminati” in today’s society, and rather, the word “illuminati” is simply an occult term meant to signify “illumination” or enlightenment to the higher self. Within this context, there has become a hidden ruling élite class that hoards its wealth and its esoteric knowledge through secret societies by passing these amenities down through their blood lines. These people, while possibly having some precursors beforehand, can be seen as products of the Rockefeller/Rothschild Dynasty of Western Institutionalization towards uniformed, globally centralized government systems.
For those unfamiliar, the American Rockefellers started out selling literal snake-oil in the 1800’s, struck oil, and never turned back; becoming the primary monopolistic power over oil in the west, and eventually the globe through control of the market. The Rothschilds made their name in banking, and being of Zionist Jewish lineage, they are why so many researchers are quick to be anti-Semitic, sometimes even claiming that “Jews run the world.” While these phrases are not endorsed here in this article, from this perspective, there is technically somewhat of an argument for it. Monopolizing money and oil in the West, the Rothschild and Rockefeller families shared their resources in order to monopolize the energy and currency market, eventually creating the “petrodollar.” For more information of this narrative, James Corbett’s documentary, “How Big Oil Took Over the World” is a good place to start.
From here, it is considered that through metaphysics of the Mystery Initiations, handed down by Freemasonry and other off-shoot societies, that the Rockefeller/Rothschild Dynasty began to monopolize esoteric knowledge as well, and implementing it into their agendas that were eventually facilitated by Sigmund Freud’s research into psychoanalysis, as proposed by Freud’s American nephew, Edward Bernays. The father of modern propaganda, Bernays was one of the primary founders of the American “Public Relations” department, and, using his Uncle Sigmund’s pessimistic ideas on human collective consciousness, found it instrumental to constantly “manufacture consent” of the people, so as to guide their animalistic, barbaric impulses of their subconscious mind from harming them and threatening the power structure that was doing so much to “help” them survive.
It is simply a matter of record from here on out that the Rockefellers monopolized Western Medicine by buying out the funding of the dominant medical schools and injecting Big Pharma economics into their treatment plans, subsequently eliminating holistic medicine from practice. Through this process, the Rockefellers continued to rot out the rest of the college institution through affect. Through the inspirations of public relations war propaganda of the World Wars, the rise of the medias like television and music were quickly monopolized so as to properly “direct” the “banal, animalistic impulses” of the commoner’s subconscious as well. Today, a variety of this hidden esoteric symbolism can be seen flaunted in the mainstream Western pop culture media with endless doublespeak, allegorical imagery, and subliminal messaging; to use the most basic example, a variety of hand-gestures such as the triangle that is flashed by movie stars like Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt, to music icons like Jay Z and Justin Bieber.
This does not prove that these people have ill-intentions, although it is suggestive of it. Presumably, when someone flaunts this symbolism, it suggests that they have been approached and endorsed by the Western institution of the Rockefeller/Rothschild dynasty or New World Order; but what the consistency of ancient symbolism represents here is that these celebrities, through the journey of their career into “stardom,” are becoming “illuminated” with the esoteric knowledge of the Gnostic Mystery Initiations through the teachings’ survival in secret societies. It does not mean that these people are directly involved with secret societies (although any of them could be), and it doesn’t even necessarily suggest that they have any accurate understanding of ancient mysticism (although they probably do). The same goes for politicians.
This is the connection that secret societies have to the Rockefeller/Rothschild New World Order: elitism, money, and blood lines. That’s basically it. Freemasonry does not directly equate to the NWO, and Adam Weishaupt’s “Illuminati” (which was a rebellion against the Catholic Church) was predominantly active at the end of the 18th century (1776, on record). Researchers like James Corbett also report how Weisphaut’s Illuminati actually had ties to the Catholic Jesuit Order (See Part III); and if this is true, then it proves that there is still quite a bit more to be fleshed out on this subject. Either way, there is definitely more research to be done on the matter. Even if the Illuminati had continued and had ominous intentions, there is little evidence to suggest that anything other than the symbolism that they borrowed survives to this day.

In a final consideration of Freemasonry, it is only very loosely centralized to begin with–and each “lodge” of Freemasonry is independent to a large degree, allowing for all sorts of misinterpretations and false-equivalence, since lodges can ultimately have very different reasons for their founding. The Skull and Bones Society at Yale, due to heavy ties to political elitism, does seem to be some facet of Freemasonry and esoteric knowledge that is inherently corrupt. Additionally, there is an increasingly overwhelming body of evidence to suggest that the Western institutions of surveillance, involving the CIA and many high level politicians directly related to this New World Order complex, are involved with intricate and continuously run child sex trafficking rings that, believe it or not, are always reported with black magick ritualism. “Bohemian Grove,” which is an annual pagan ritual attended by some of the wealthiest and most powerful members of the US elite, is unfortunately a well documented event that involves this type of New World Order corruption of esoteric knowledge. Furthermore, Bohemian Grove is on public record as a private camping ground in Monte Rio California; reportedly has ties to the child sex trafficking; and has been around since the early 20th century, at least. Additionally, the “Grove” seems to be one of the primary distortions of esoteric knowledge by the New World Order.
Whatever is going on in today’s secret societies is by no means certain, but there is a lot of information available that people are still not looking into–hence the convolution and confusion in many of today’s discussions amongst researchers.
