    I checked the internet, it was 'Skull and Bones' like I thought...
    The film 'Skulls' was based on it though.

    well I believe that the priory of scion did exist because their is evidence that supports that claim, also an interesting fact, the ritual in Eyes Wide Shut where Cruise went to all those orgies was the same ritual that the prior of scion does.

    Yeah I got that game, but my graphics card isn't compatible so I have never got to play it. Good Shlt to know though.

    and you're probably all gonna be hunted down by those S.S. bastards for talking about them. just kidding. I actually think that secret societies are a misinterpretation of the workings of capitalism and probably to the extext of globalism. Civilization is set up as a hierarchy of individuals. This hierarchy segregates these individuals into subgroupings that develop identities just like individuals, we call these societies. These societies in turn have subgroupings that segregate the people within that macro subgrouping and so on. .. .

    To digress we have to be clear about what a society is in the first place. I consider it a group that is conscious of itself, and tries to preserve its existence and improve its condition.

    The individuals within these societies, both macro and micro are constanty watching out for each other and scratching the nexts one's back. Some societies are more open than others. The latter could be percieved as secretive; but as for an all powerful SS that manipulates the events of the world, I think that is just a big excuse for ignorance. A society can only be as strong as the will of mankind will allow.

    Societies like the KKK? I believe these societies still exist. But they're SECRET right? So you're not suppose to know about them. KKK and other powerful societies are only revealed when they get into politics (usually), but I definatly believe in them. Besides, a secret society doesn't mean they're nessisarily violent right? It's just like a cult. but, secret.

    The Klan has no power. The only people who believe it has any power are the retards who join.
    Clan? What Clan?
    I'm the Master. I need no Clan.

    oh KKK still exists that's for sure, but just like ZQ said they probably have no power just a bunch of teenagers that wants attention

    *thank god for the internet I can say whatever I want about the KKK and there's no way they can find me and lynch me

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    Even if the KKK has no power that's no reason to let them off the hook.
    When groups like that fly under the radar they're ten times more dangerous.

    -And before anyone makes fun of me saying that ten times more dangerous than nothing is still nothing: Yeah yeah, you know what I mean!-

    Man I really want to say something but i can't say much ..(serious)..but secret societies really do exist..though some are stupid societies that always have someone leak out information..but there are some of which you don't know about and belive me if you did you wouldn't be able to talk about it...There is a society in Ireland thats pretty unknown but they have their fingers in every goverment decision. Theres about 5 societies in the british Iles alone only about 2 are harmless but big in numbers. one actually has branches all over the world in each continent but they don't do much for money or power its just like a undercover religion that would be prosecuted if the goverment knew what they were doing.
