    It’s a very interesting subject. There’s some good videos by Michael Tsarion on themtube that covers this in detail. I know this cause JEP played some clips of him last year and I subsequently searched for more.

    Secret Agent 666 by History prof Richard B Spence goes (as a side line to the main work) into how Masonry was the way people got ahead in the Victorian Civil Service… the more powerful people them got into magic things like OTO in the same way older kids move into new hobbies when younger kids copy their present ones.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUN9A_Nskjk thkelly interview w him
    WISH he was a guest on Corbett report as it would be a good show.
    Anyway.. my take is that the REAL master plan behind it all is to reenact the type of change that happened when Christianity became the main religion- only the plan is to externalize the Lucifarian / satanic religion that a number of these people practice in secret
    The biggest thing that makes me think that there is a desire to re-write the religious scene and externalize some form of satanism as the main religion of society is the way that its promoted in the media- by people who clearly KNOW something about what they are writing of.
    The externalization of whats hidden and making it accepted by normal people is a generations long process but clearly they are making headway when you consider that things like STrange Angel, or the ”chilling adventures of Sabrina’ (how many parents will let kids watch unattended because they assume its the same as the 90’s TV show??) and now being put out- work that has symbolism and things that are impossible to have randomly been included.
    ABout 5 min in this reviewer actually says of the COMIC (not TV) version that it creeped him out how much research went into the story
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAiQuKWJchs If you follow only one link I post it should be This one , a comic review…
    Dennis Wheatly wrote about these kinda things and knew what he was on about
    https://www.bitchute.com/video/ZxV9uSWNxFPX/ review book on bitchute.. Christopher Lee also spoke about such things (long windedly) and the idea that satanism is a joke or libertarian movement is an amazing change in culture
    Its also stupid to think that hollyweirdos like Johnny Depp and the guy who did Lord of the rings are going to blow millions getting a confessed satanic kiddie murderer like Echols out of jail so they can hang out without a
    coreligionist link.

    Is this the face of a logo? Three days after a couple a thousand people of New Jersey show up at the capitol to kill a skull and bones bill, the minions of evil introduce the bill again. Obliviously statism never sleeps. What will be the logo of someone like this
    ( crazy ? ) man ?


    Is he crazy for taking action or is this a deception? Is the American flag a logo for his cause or has he been deceived by the promise of this logo, as all other logos deceive?

    I asked a group of friends the other night if government works 1% of the time you ignore the 99% of corruption? They all agreed government works 99% and only fails 1%. I said see how it works.

    • Libertydan says:

      Interesting Video. Dr. Shiva (born in India) is running for the U.S. Senate and thinks he can fix things. Perhaps he really thinks he can, yet, I see him as a useful tool for those Secret Societies that he appears to know nothing about, eh!

      • generalbottlewasher says:

        Libertydan, he may be using the words ‘ establishment and blue bloods’ instead of the words JFK used. He definitly looks depressed and may well be heading to a crisis of existence like so many others who have been so foolish to speck exoterical esoterically.
        Given careful listening in my humble opinion, he is saying much of what TCR is saying.
        He seems to be many things, uninformed isn’t one of them.

  5. Libertydan says:

    Below is a link to a speech by JFK given on April 27, 1961 (only a couple months after being sworn into Office). In the speech he declares Secret Societies “Repugnant to a Free Society”.
    It was a Coup, orchestrated by the collaboration of many “Secret Societies” that took him out, removed Silver from U.S. Money, covered it all up, killed RFK, and continues to rule to this day.


    The CIA was clearly involved in the Coup, which led to Bush #1 getting in the White House. And, it gets worse, eh!

  6. qdb says:

    Tom Steyer, the only billionaire running for the democratic nomination, who made his money in oil, yet his biggest talking point is fighting climate change, has been drawing a symbol on his hand:


    I’m new to Corbett and this entire section of the world, but after watching Why Big Oil Conquered the World, and learning a little bit about these secret societies, I can see how the dots could possibly connect.

    Does anybody have any insight into this?

  7. Jordan Maxwell has made a pretty solid case that Sun worship is front & center for TPTB, and that the rising sun symbol (sun on the horizon with outreaching sunbeams) is a favorite of theirs.
    He believes that is what’s depicted in the modern 1971 iteration of the Shell pecten logo.
    According to Wikipedia, that 1971 logo was designed by none other than Raymond Loewy (same guy who did the Exxon logo).

    • Duck says:

      They are without doubt practitioners of another religion, with which they wish to replace Christianity…. I’d say it more likly they are Satanists in the sense that its hard to imagine a SOl Invictus or such like cult existing thru the middle ages in a culture of Christianity and then bursting out. Its more likely a growth of rebellion vs the dominant culture, either by certain sects of jew (not all) or natively.
      Wicca is a totally new creation and has zero historical basis in even the middle ages let alone pre-christian times. Survival of a totally non christian cult would be hard in the dark and middle ages

    • CRM114 says:

      Sun Worship IS Christianity. Read Chapter 4 of From Hell by Alan Moore…

      • Duck says:

        1)Alan Moore is an occultist and magician- not sure you should trust what he says even if he thinks he actually knows something.
        2)Christianity is NOT sun worship.
        I suspect you have been drinking the “zeitgeist” Movie coolaid? Those ideas are generally a rehashing of some kind of the very poor historical work done by early amateurs in Egypt before we could read hieroglyphics… a rehash of old , frankly rusbbish , ideas from 200 years ago that keep comng up because they suit the ‘zeitgeist’ (pun intended) 🙂
        Thats where the “ossiris is Jesus” rubbish came from, a lack of knowledge at what they were looking at and an enlightenment mindset looking to take down established church power. Its also the same way we get “bacchus is jesus!” narative, also BS if you actually look into it.
        Now… I will admit that Constantine WAS into Sol Invictus more then Christianity, but unless you are talking about some of the weirdnesses in practice that the Roman Catholics let occasionally let creep in for social reasons that is in no way a part of the theology

        • CRM114 says:

          This has nothing to do with a stupid youtube movie. You can read the chapter and we can try to have an intelligent discussion or you can dismiss things out of hand because you are already in contact with the one true Reality…………………….quack quack

          • Duck says:

            Since I dont HAVE a copy thats not possible, however the stupid idea of the solar cult being involved in the origin of Christianity is an old and utterly rubbish idea. I was just going thru some of the places it has come up recently, (the zeitgeist movie) but its recycled periodically.
            Its not an idea that is new, nor is it a discovery or invention of Alan Moore, so if you want to discuss it go ahead and make a case.

              • Duck says:

                not sure what you want me to read there- from hell not there

              • Duck says:

                I dont generally download stray PDF’s on my actual PC, I can do it when I get my other machine up next. That aside, why dont you just make the case for Jesus being a sun cult?
                Its not like a comic book is evidence of anything OTHER THEN POSSIBLY that the author believed such a thing… as I have said, tose ideas are not new, they arose AFAIK when Europeans first started to take an interest in Egypt but were not able to read the actual inscriptions…. if you have an author who has some evidence (other then alan moore making a assertion thereof in a comic book) then I’d be interested. On the other hand if you want to say ALAN MOORE thinks such a thing I would say your prob right… but why and how does he think that? WHat are his sources?
                If you dig up the bibliography of books with astronomical JEsus and BAcchus Jesus they tend to be sourced from mostly discredited olde tymers or people with occult ideas.

  8. Noahsark723 says:

    This such an important topic… Micheal Tsarion has done some great work on this subject in the past as well Jordan Maxwell. Tsarion though has been taken by the Trump / alt-right psy-op since the last selection and now promotes people like anne coulter. A real disappointment to see… he was one of my favorite researchers years ago.

    Symbols certainly speak to the subconscious as well as events do on a deeper level.

    Michael Hoffman wrote a book called “Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare” which is one of the most important books written on the subject of psychologically binding people. Symbols are just a mere part of the binding process, the book delves deeper into the symbolic patterns of unfolding events that were to begin with the new century. That in turn would trans-form mankind into the transhuman and we are seeing it happen with all of the madness being promoted in regards to all the schism identities that have popped up.

    I highly recommend this book to everyone:

    This is truly mystery babylon that we are living in and it is the great work of lucifer. But lucifer is no mythical being – I believe it is a fallen race of aliens who have been here for a very long time and they know us psychologically far better than we know ourselves. Hence the effects of the symbols.. Jung began to tap into a way to free us and he was on to something when he stated:

    “A great change of our psychological attitude is imminent,
    that is certain…we need more psychology, we need more understanding
    of human nature because the only real danger that exists is man himself,
    he is the great danger, and we are pitifully unaware of it,
    we know nothing of man, far too little. His psyche should be studied
    because we are the origin of all coming evil ”

    Lucifers influence is the origin – but mans psyche is a great manifester of the collective conditions. They know this well and the symbols is part of how man is mind controlled.

    If fact, mind control is at the root of all of this. None of their bullshit could fly without it, from the belief in the simple lie down to the trauma based mind controlled slave.

    To add to Exxon and gasoline refineries. Back in the 60’s leaded fuel days, their where 300 oil companies in Texas alone making/refining gasoline. Then after the un-leaded fuel legislation happened, only 3 big dogs in Texas were allowed to sell gasoline, that was Texaco, Mobil and Esso, now all owned by Standard Oil of New York (SONY) Rock’o’fellow became EXXON. Back in the leaded fuel days, there were 13 cariogenic chemicals coming out the tail pipes, and was dirty and fell to the ground. TODAY there are 25 cariogenic chemicals coming out the tail pipes, and it is clear and nano articulate size and blows in the air for days and the SMOG is clear, not brown color in the skies above.

    That Fry guy lost it when he ventured into the devil bs.

    • Duck says:

      I don’t believe in Allah the muslim god… but muslims do plenty of actions in the real world because THEY believe…. why would it be hard to imagine that people who believe in satan might worship him and do things in the real world because of that belief ??
      That would be like imagining that pedo’s CANT exist because we cant imagine why they would do their disgusting actions…. a non-mystic history book on the subject is ‘secret agent 666’

      • laugh says:

        Allah is Arabic for God, and is used by Arab speaking Christians and Jews to refer to God, in other words it literally translates as God.

        • Duck says:

          in scripture God has a name… the reason that mohamed never used that name for allah is that the jews who were paid to read him their books never said it aloud- instead using “Lord”.
          ‘baal’ (as in the recently revamped “arch of Baal”) also means ‘lord’ which in English means something like ‘giver of loaves/bread’ but while that title may be used to refer to God or to ‘the baals’ (‘g’ods) worshiped by pagans.
          Allah is not the same as the God of the Bible.

          • laugh says:

            God has 72 names in scripture including YHVH, El, El Shaddai, Elohim, etc. Gods name in Latin is Dues, Got in German, Jehovah in English, I don’t understand what’s so difficult understand about a word being translated into another language.

            Hebrew, Aramaic, and Arabic are all Semitic languages and share words and cognates. Yes Allāh is a direct translation of one of the Hebrew words for God. In Christian Arabic Bibles it’s the word used for God. It’s not a separate Deity and never has been.

            • Duck says:

              El, El Shaddai, Elohim are titles NOT names, anymore than ‘Captain’ is the name of the guy running the ship or “General” isa the name of the gy ordering the army or “director” is the NAME of the guy running the company
              Gott and Deus are ALSO words that mean “God” but they are NOT names, for example ‘moloch’ would also be referred to as “‘A’ deus” (or a deity) or “A” Gott (a god)
              Allah is never called by the name of God anymore, then Baal or moloch is, because muhamed DID NOT KNOW THAT NAME, because the jews who he was copying never said it aloud to him and he could not read hebrew.
              Theologically it would also be VERY strange if the same God who hung out with jews then decided to hang out in a little black rock formerly worshiped by pagans.

            • Arby says:

              God has one self-given name. It is represented in the four Greek letters known as the Tetragrammaton, transliterated into English as: YHWH or JHVH. The most popular pronunciation for it is: Jehovah. The correct pronunication is lost to antiquity and isn’t important. But the truth is. The name “Jehovah” means “He Causes To Become.” (https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200002391)

              And if you go to fake, mainstream Christianity (clergy) for info on this, you will possibly be misled. But, often, knowledgeable clergy within Christendom (fake, mainstream Christianity) will tell the truth about this.

    MASONS –
    In 1979, I worked as a bellman for a 650 room hotel spread out on 14 acres by Love Field Airport in Dallas. It literally looked like a castle.
    A bellman knows what goes down.
    One time the Masons had a big bash. We are talking high profile businessmen, judges, etc. Their armed security ballroom was locked to keep out hotel staff while they had gambling tables going on inside. (I peaked through the door cracks.) They had one cordoned-off hotel wing where they kept a room full of working girls. Masons would go to the prostitute room, pick the girl of their choice and take them to another room. Sometimes, the couple even did their act in the hallway. Occasionally, I would deliver food to the girls. An interesting, adventurous era for me.

    (The above comment was snagged from the Thread at Corbett’s Episode 158 – Requiem for the Suicided: The DC Madam )

    Has anyone questioned why would “they” do such a thing?

    It’s not for fun I tell you that much, its more to it than putting their signs everywhere. When you get on this rabbit whole you will understand why towards the end.

    • Duck says:

      ‘…It’s not for fun I tell you that much, its more to it than putting their signs everywhere. When you get on this rabbit whole you will understand why towards the end….’
      Are you not telling us because its too horrible or because its hard to understand? Just tell us why you think so we can compare ideas- I think its to slip it into the external, exoteric, world and change our culture into a mirror of their ideas, just like Christians did to the old Roman.

  14. fieldmouse says:

    Cult symbolism from Greece, Rome, and the Middle East before that, is everywhere. Just look around any town. You can easily find the columns of dualistic rule either side of a door. There will also often be a pair of animals on either side, or a half circle divided into sections over the door, which depicts the sun’s daily arc in the sky.
    The three, or 1,2,3 is there in countless logos, eg 3 waves or flames.
    So much is hidden in plain sight that you can’t rationally explain it away. You can’t go far without seeing two triangles.
    A good example is the skull and bones. Did you know that to make a skull and bones you would have to kill and dismember someone? The Shrub family are notorious pirates.
    Another example is the caste system, or bloodlines, which have been hidden in plain sight for 6000 years, up until the C20th when the machine changed gear. It was unthinkable, or if not, difficult and dangerous to marry outside your caste.

  15. bladtheimpaler says:

    While exposing the hidden symbolism of a logo may have an entertaining aspect to the unwashed the same symbolism serves very powerful purposes to those who understand the esoteric of occult knowledge. One of the more knowledgeable proponents of Natural Law and against Statism, Mark Passio, was a former Satanic priest who has often stated that if you do not understand occult knowledge then you cannot understand how secret societies wield such immense influence and power from behind the curtain and over much of the world’s structures and through them holding the rest of the unknowledgeable population in such a power differential as to make the later play things.

    Here’s an introduction to Passio in conversation with Tragedy and Hope’s Richard Grove : https://tragedyandhope.com/history-solutions-how-to-escape-the-psychology-of-control-with-mark-passio/

    • Duck says:

      I saw Mark Passion a while back, he struck me as similar to Ted Gunderson who was mostly believable but went that little bit further to make the subject skunked and stupid to people who happen across it wthout prior exposure to the ideas.
      Not saying anything bad about him personally but that was kinda the feeling they both gave me.

  16. Particle Man says:

    An Exxon employee responded thusly:

    It’s assumed that the name Exxon comes from a branding agency or researcher, that someone got paid well to find a name and that it has no particular meaning. They wanted a name that couldn’t be mistranslated, like the old car, the Nova, which was popular in the US, but in Mexico, nobody wanted a car whose name in Spanish, “No va,” means “Doesn’t go.” As I recall from college biology, an “exon” is a part of DNA that gets spliced out and nobody knows why it exists.

    As for Shell, it was named as a tribute to the old family business of shell trading. Talking with designers, sometimes they use old symbols because they like the look and symbology.

    • Fawlty Towers says:

      Not to downplay the significance/importance of this piece, but if you looked long enough and tried hard enough I would imagine you could find links to Satan in almost every logo out there today.

      For example, it took me all of two seconds to see the obvious link between Freeman Fly and Freemasonry.

      • Duck says:

        Fawlty Towers
        True you can get carried away with it but we know that being in the Mason’s was the way people climbed the Victorian English civil service ladder, so you would expect plenty of powerful people to use their symbolism- the thing is that regular folks like to copy their ‘betters’ and use it themselves even if the don’t understand the meaning or correct use.
        The whole thing with music industry skin puppets using the symbolism is to make it something the lower classes aspire to

  17. fieldmouse says:

    Correcting disinfo is an unpopular pastime, but here goes.
    Venus is a planet and Lucifer is a demon, so they are not the same. They are associated. Why I don’t know. Ask Velikovsky what happened to Venus.
    Satan is another demon.
    Neither Satan nor Lucifer is a serpent. Serpents are not lizards.
    The Sol Invictus cult went into what has now become inner circle Christianity, which is Luciferian.
    It’s interesting that Venus does trace a Tudor rose pattern, as shown on the video. Jordan Maxwell reported that when he wrote to Shell he was told that the shell of the Shell logo, as in the rebirth of Venus, is a sun symbol.
    The pentagram in Masonry represents Sirius AFAIK. The association of the pentagram with witchcraft is confusing and was probably used to tar country witches with the brush that should have pointed at the priestesses of the ruling class.

    • Duck says:

      ‘…Venus is a planet and Lucifer is a demon, so they are not the same. They are associated…’
      The planet is the ‘morningstar’, the Goddess venus is aphrodite, born from the foam of cronus;’s nuts being thrown in the ocean as I recall and – like in the panting- comes in the sea shell.
      The use of a serpent to describe the devil comes from the Book of Revelations.

      “….The Sol Invictus cult went into what has now become inner circle Christianity, which is Luciferian……”
      There is no inner secret to Christianity, that is a Gnostic teaching and the gnostics may very well be lucifarians- they are not Christians, they just have some superficially similar ideas which made them infect Christians with teachings that became heresies in Christianity.
      My understanding is that Cabalism (which is so popular with the rich and famous) and Gnostic ideas are similar and related but I don’t know enough to say.
      “… The association of the pentagram with witchcraft is confusing and was probably used to tar country witches…”
      The pentagram was often used as a good luck sign (and used to represent the wounds of Christ….maybe…) for a long time. The INVERTED 5 pointed star was considered satanic for a long time and is possibly linked to or representative of the baphomet figures head. It may have been a folk magic symbol.
      Wicca witchcraft is a totally modern invention and any symbology it uses mostly comes from the occultists who created it. You might expect satanist witches to invert a ‘lucky’ christian star maybe? I don’t know

      • Arby says:

        If people want to give Satan the additional name of Lucifer, I have no problem with it. But it doesn’t have a definite (Christian) scriptural basis. ‘If’ the kings of Babylon can be regarded, collectively, as a type (symbol) of Satan, then I think it’s reasonable to give Satan (meaning ‘resister’ or ‘opposer’) that additional name. Other scriptural names for Satan are: Devil (meaning ‘slanderer’) and Gog (probably meaning darkness). (https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200275280)

  20. alexandre says:

    Well, señor Corbett really opened the gates on this one. Oh-la-la.
    My comment is just a tiny bit from experience, since my dad was an ad man – he won the first Cannes Lion for Brazil etc. I’m sure he would think this talk of hidden satanic symbols is just stupid, but he was way down in the hierarchy (as well as in the map). You do want to allure, attract, seduce people to your “product” and so you provoke, embed, hide things in logos, texts, music etc to have that subconscious effect (usually called “sexy” as in “make it sexy”), which is indeed manipulation, mind control etc, but in a much lower level – the commercial level. So I wanted just to remind people that this “they” must be way up, and some are probably embedded in agencies, and in cases like Shell, Exxon, Texaco etc (the big guys) indeed they will approve the stuff that have that occult effect, but the majority of ad people, including some big shots, I think knows nothing about it, mainly because they’re often so arrogant, self-centered and usually dumb. These people would indeed use these things, be it satanic symbols, reverse music etc, but without any idea of secret societies or mind control.

    I myself, with another friend in a studio we worked for long ago, used to try to embed things that were contrary to the ad world, sort of like an anti-propaganda, or reverse-advertising where you embed for instance the melody of Rachmaninoff’s “Isle of the Dead” in some happy ad music, things like that, and we gave ourselves prizes whenever we had one of those approved. But our intention was not to manipulate people with “death”, just to fool the ad guys, making them happily approve something that had a requiem or something in it that they couldn’t tell. So a lot of things like that, not connected to any organized kind of mind control or secret societies, just stupidity, fun and ignorance, mixed with the real satanic manipulations that I’m sure are also true, but much higher up in the chain, I think.

    Now, to separate one thing from the other would be maybe impossible, which makes this subject a kind of Alice in Wonderland in the bottomless pit, and it would be easy to start seeing things where there are none. Someone recognizes the “Isle of the Dead” I put in and say “AHAAA! Satanic masonic bastards!” You know? Not to be a spoiler, just to follow up on Bashad’s suggestion of “caution” with this rabbit hole.

    I couldn’t help but think about this JoyCamp video that beautifully illustrates “Hidden in Plan Sight”…Enjoy…it’s funny too:


  22. manbearpig says:

    No time right now for a very thoughtful post so I’ll go with a repeat that went something like this:

    In terms of symbols, a few years back I’d posted this one on a Corbett comments board (the best comments board on the net) that had marked me:


    the Lictor’s bundle, that I’d discovered doing a translation:

    “…The lictor’s bundle is an unofficial emblem often used to represent the French Republic.

    Originally, it is an object of a symbolic nature worn by the lictor, an officer in the service of magistrates under the Roman Republic, to enforce sentences. Symbolising the “imperium”, the power to coerce and punish, it groups together two instruments of punishment: the bundle for flogging and the axe for the death penalty.

    It is thus made up of long, thin tree branches (birch or elm sticks) assembled and bound in a cylinder around the handle of an axe with leather strips crossed in the shape of a fascine or bundle.

    From the French Revolution onwards, the lictor’s bundle is used as a political symbol in reference to the Roman Republic…”


    An ancient Roman SPQR banner with lictor’s bundle:


    Another SPQR banner:


    The “logo” of the United Nations:


    “…the most terrifying images captured by Ristil on July 6, 2005 were those of a family killed in their home. The sole survivor, a tearful father, sits in a chair over the lifeless bodies of his wife and two infant sons lying on the floor. Fredi Romulus explains in detail how UN troops lobbed a red smoke grenade into his house and everyone panicked. He sobbed deeply as he expressed his grief over leaving the house first and turning to see UN soldiers fire into the doorway towards his wife and children. Sonia Romulus was holding her one year-old son Nelson when the UN bullet passed through his small body killing both of them instantly. A separate head shot killed four year-old Stanley Romulus, Nelson’s older brother…”


    And I understood the UN’s real mission: Fasces and death.

        …some analyses began to attract a much wider audience, for example …the best-sellers of Dan Brown include theories, disowned by most art historians, on the iconography of works by Leonardo da Vinci…

        …Technological advances allowed the building-up of huge collections of photographs, with an iconographic arrangement or index, which include those of the Warburg Institute and the Index of Medieval Art[12] (formerly Index of Christian Art) at Princeton (which has made a specialism of iconography since its early days in America)…

        …Iconography, often of aspects of popular culture, is a concern of other academic disciplines including Semiotics, Anthropology, Sociology, Media Studies and Cultural Studies. These analyses in turn have affected conventional art history, especially concepts such as signs in semiotics. Discussing imagery as iconography in this way implies a critical “reading” of imagery that often attempts to explore social and cultural values…”

        So it would seem logos come from a very distinguished lineage indeed.

        Wouldn’t be as much fun if I didn’t include the Eye of God through the heavens:


        Now I really must attend to more pressing terrestrial matters… sigh…

    Well James, you manage to fool me this time, when I first read the title I though you were going to go down a different path with this one.

    I thought you were going to follow on with the idea of people being a creature of habit as in the Truth About Shadow banning.

    Apart from any symbolism or particular meaning associated with a Logo, the simple recognition of a Logo is in itself a form a mind control.

    For example a lot of people complain about the path Youtube is heading these days with censorship and everything, but the fact is that the Youtube of 2010 and the Youtube of 2020 are completely different entities. The server hardware is different, the data has been copied multiple times, code has been changed, employees have come and gone, ownership has changed and most importantly policies are different.

    About the only thing that ties Youtube 2020 to Youtube 2010 is the Logo and other branding.
    If you were able to travel back in time and show someone from 2010 the current day Youtube (Hiding the Logo and the URL from them) they wouldn’t recognise it. They would probably think of it as poor quality rip-off of the their Youtube and insist on using the “REAL” Youtube site because it is better.

    Logos and “branding” can be used to keep the Frogs boiling away in their pots without them ever realizing the temperature has been wound up.

    The Logo is immortal, even if the corpses of the evil founders have long since rotted away.

    words: 500

    I read a lot about Freemasonry in my earlier days. I’m 63 now. I would have been in my 30s when I found out about this stuff.

    One observation I would make is that, as with JFK, the vast majority (I suspect) of material (mainly books) that is out there that deals with the subject of Freemasonry is misleading. Stephen Knight shone a lot of light on Masons, mainly with his books (including one about Jack the Ripper (Sir William Gull). Gull travelled about, at night, killing those who he suspected knew about Prince Eddy’s lover and her baby. He was driven by coachman John Netley and, apparently, accompanied also by a painter named Walter Sickert. The movie, “Murder By Decree” (on my Bitchute channel “Arby”), starring Christopher Plummer as the fictional Sherlock Holmes, was based on research by Stephen Knight. Knight died at 33 years of age (ahem) and his research material was passed to Martin Short who wrote a sequel of sorts to Knights book on Freemasonry (not the Ripper book). Short reveals his ignorance of The Temple, but otherwise tells us much and reveals how Masons made a lot of trouble for British society (mainly due to serious oaths that they took both in their public, professional lives [as barristers etc] ‘and’ as Masons. Those oaths conflicted.

    My view is that while this stuff is interesting, it can suck you in in a negative way. For example, many US presidents have been Masons. Most people never knew and wouldn’t be interested. Does it matter? It doesn’t matter for purposes of finding indictable material on those presidents. They were all mass murderers, whose crimes are recorded by history (even if establishment history fails to deliver; there’s still enough real history out there) and sufficient to allow those who want to know to know exactly what kind of people those presidents were. Would those presidents who were Masons be any less evil, or indictable, if we knew about their Masonic backgrounds? No. In that sense, then, their belonging to that secret society doesn’t matter.

    By now, there’s nothing secret about the secret society that is Freemasonry (Craft and the more exotic branches). The world’s operating principle is ‘riches for the strongest’. An element of that is ego. Those who have self-modified come to possess twisted desires and needs. They now value glory and get it by taking the means of survival from others, which causes those others to ‘notice’ their abusers. Glory that is unseen is not glory. Think about that the next time you see the compass and square on a license plate on a vehicle belonging to one of those members of that ‘secret’ society.

      Hi Arby. Thanks for that. I never understood Freemasonry. My neighbor is a mason. I don’t know what that means. My uncle (sort of) in Buenos Aires once showed me a document with his name on it and it said “33 degree…” something. Like he was a 33rd degree mason. He explained that it’s only a kind of club and if you arrive somewhere and get in touch with the local lodge, they can help you find jobs, things like that. Since he has a humor deeper than Monty Python, I never knew if that was true or some joke. When I started seeing the truth stuff about freemasonry, I thought “heck, I’ll ask uncle for help”, but he himself is always broke, living in a very humble apartment, so it doesn’t make sense. It was probably a joke, and a weird one. The small town I live in has the compass and square at the entrance, apparently because the masons did a lot in the city in the early days – schools, hospital etc. All you hear about is that they “help the community”, nothing else. So why the secrecy and all the mystical stuff? As Jim Marrs said… “don’t ask your freemason friend about it because either he doesn’t know what goes on above his level, or he has a secrecy oath and will never say”, so we’ll never know. You have a point about it not being significant. If a guy robs you at gunpoint, does it make a difference if he’s a mason or anything else? It really doesn’t. From what you know, would you confirm that there are many levels above 33, and that no one knows what happens above their level, and that the levels above are indeed “another universe”? Or either that freemasonry was infiltrated by the illuminati and all that?

        Hello. First of all, I apologize for not getting to you sooner. I get no email alerts to let me know that someone’s replied to one of my comments. I’ve checked back a few times, but until now, I saw no activity and I’m very busy with my full time job ‘and’ my own blog.

        Actually, the exotic levels are just bullcrap. Craft (also called Blue, as I recall) Masonry is 3 levels, namely ‘entered apprentice’, ‘fellow Craft’ and ‘master’. There’s an excellent (surprisingly, or maybe not) series of books on the Occult by Time which goes into a lot of this. Albert Pike (American General and Satanist and Mason) and Aleister Crowley are examined. Crowley was a Mason for a time and a leader for a time of the Ordo Templi Orientis (Masonic). I can’t remember exactly, but Crowley I think gave himself a designation of some higher level than 3rd degree. Basically, You could, if your name was big enough and you were brazen enough and no one in the order or many of its branches objected, give yourself a label like 66th degree Mason or something and get away with it. It would impress people. I would exercise caution with Wikipedia, but here’s an entry for Ordo Templi Orientis that seems, at a glance, to be useful: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ordo_Templi_Orientis

        So many people find that they have family members or friends who are Masons or were in it. Some regular people who are in it don’t take it seriously (but do desire to benefit from the membership) and aren’t taken seriously. I worked in a kitchen in the Oshawa Golf Club for 7.5 years and there were Masons there for sure. Once we – myself and some of the young people I worked with at the Club – learned about all of this, we started to notice things, like old shower towels with the compass and square stamped or embroidered on them. Once, without even really knowing that it was fact, my mischievous friend started, foolishly, calling one of our managers a Mason, not to his face but to enough people that it got back to him. I remember the day: I was in the dish pit washing dishes. My friend was across from me doing prep. This manager, Eric, suddenly shows up and out loud for all to hear asks my friend “So you want to know whether I’m a Mason.” Everyone’s jaw dropped. Then he went over to him and gave him one of those Masonic handshakes and had a long friendly chat with him. I had to debrief my friend after that of course. It was fascinating. As I explained to my friend, half of what Eric told him was bullcrap.

        That friend, who is no longer young, has remained in contact with me throughout the years. He knows that Masonry’s not nice and is essentially Satanism, but he went ahead a joined (not with my knowledge or approval), thinking that he’d use it, as he told me later. He got nowhere. I don’t know whether he continues with it. I’ll have to ask him.

    I’ll indulge in an egocentric last word on What’s in a logo?;

    In October of 2008 an odd set of circumstances sent me tumbling down the rabbit hole (whose dark winding passages eventually led to the Corbett report);
    One was a light-hearted laugh I was having standing on the edge of this dark hole with my older son as we were cynically doing some conspiracy origami:


    My son turned and walked away from the rabbit hole never to peer down it again,
    and the rest is history…
