201 Secret Society

“Of course it was all very hush-hush. A rumor in certain circles had it that Pierpont Morgan and Henry Ford had formed a secret society.”

           A secret society is classified as a club or organization whose activities and functions are hidden from non-members. The essence of what makes up a secret society has been disputed by many, but what is known is there activities are kept a secret by all members of the organization. Many of these types of organizations are bonded by the trust of member and the use of secret rites or rituals which the group follows. Secret societies have been around for hundreds of years with the most well known being The Freemasons and Skull and Bones.

            Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that arose in the late 16th to early 17th century. Freemasonry now exists in various forms all over the world but its origins and inner workings are still mysterious to the public society. Skull and Bones is a collegiate level secret society which was founded in 1832 after a dispute among Yale's debating societies. Members of Skull and Bones are referred to as “Bonesmen.” Skull and Bones has developed a reputation of having membership of the secret society as titled towards the power elite. Former presidents and politicians have been known to be active members in Skull and Bones in the past, one being former president George W. Bush. One of the interesting parts about secret societies is that throughout history, presidential candidate have mentioned them in particular address such as the link below which shows John F. Kennedys speech where he mentions the negativity that secret societies can bring the world.
