The birth of secret societies is difficult to trace: if others attribute their first appearance within the Pitagaro school, some link it to Solomon’s temple. Regardless of their origin, the current world believes it has details about them. Erroneous or not, these details are interesting, as are the ideologies of secret societies, their power or strategy. At a time when cryptocurrencies are bustling, some observers have advanced the idea that bitcoin would be the best secret society ever. According to them, it would put the Illuminati 2.0 to the center of the stage.
Secret societies, myths or truth?
Magical-religious system, satanic rituals, initiation rituals, conspiracy, Bilderberg, Illuminati, Freemasonry… and many more. With so many words and specifications drawing on secret societies many people seem to understand and many do not.
When we talk about “secret society”, is there an objective definition to rely on? Definitely!
First, a secret society referred to a social organization unknown to the public. So it can be associated with a group of people from one or more nominal companies whose grouping must stay away from any kind of curiosity. This aims to establish a simple fraternity or a powerful organization with a financial or political career.
In ancient Greece, the goals of secret societies had nothing to do with their contemporary variations. We managed to reinforce the mysterious side of society’s life with many sacred truths that were difficult to interpret. At present, or after a mutation, secret societies had political, economic, criminal or conspiracy aims. Some even go so far as to undermine the state power in force or support it at any price.
We need to recognize that there has been speculation about this type of society throughout history. In fact, we always talk about “satanic rituals” or “secret ceremonies” when we talk about the subject. However, in Europe as in Africa (among Wuli West Cameroon, for example), their reasons for being and types are different.
Some names of secret organizations
- Priory of Sion: created in 1099 by Godefroy de Bouillon, this organization was dissolved by Pierre Plantard in 1956. Dan Brown spoke widely about it in his very famous novel “Da Vinci Code”;
- Illuminati: an organization born during the Enlightenment Era with the goal of establishing a “New World Order”. There are many people in our time as part of this group who have a political and financial career;
- Golden Dawn or Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn: which emerged towards the end of the 19th century, but which has an influence on Western occultism based on esotericism;
- Skull and Bones: a very old organization founded by American scholars from Yale in 1832. This group is said to have been a symbol with a living bone skull for the founders of the CIA and to have had a major influence in this institution;
- Masonry: whose creation dates back to 1717. This organization would be the least dangerous as it limits its habits to societal debates;
If you’re a fan of reading, inspired by the spirit of openness, books like ” Secret societies and their power in the 20th centurye century it will be very useful for you.
Secret societies, method of organization and boundaries
It is acknowledged that secret societies operate without the knowledge of everyone, without neglecting their physical presence, but they also need an organization like any human group. So, secretly or not, they must:
- goals, objectives and ideas;
- an agenda and tasks to be undertaken by its members;
As a hallmark, secret societies are required to maintain the confidentiality of those around them. It is required by omerta law (a term borrowed from the Italian mafia meaning “silence”), its members are obliged to act in the shadow and not to disclose any information about their affiliate group to anyone.
Whatever it is, a secret society will achieve its goal, good or bad in the eyes of society. Moreover, it should be noted that not all secret societies are criminals. The head of the Wuli, for example, is active in the revival of local culture by practicing initiation rites and healing rituals.
However, secret societies 1.0 have their own limitations. For one mention:
- dependence on leader: sometimes the latter lacks performance until instructions are issued that some members do not understand;
- communication problems: when they occur, other problems arise such as inefficiency of the organization or interception of messages from other entities;
- resource constraints: failure to do so makes it difficult, if not impossible, to achieve objectives;
So there is a need for a digital 2.0 secret society called bitcoin
Bitcoin, “its store of anthropologists”, announces a wave of revolutions, the basic elements of which are constantly being revealed on Cointribune. Our cockfighting analogy is sure to help you see what it means socio-culturally.
Here, we simply say that bitcoin would be a lever for the development of an ordinary society or a secret society. In essence, the Bitcoin protocol wants to build a new system that can effectively replace the old financial system. Obsolete butter, which contributes to the greed and enrichment of a small part of the world’s population (only 1%), the latter has expired.
In addition, the wealth of the earth is declining to the point that all Earthlings are impermanent. Repetitive and endless inflation does not help the wallet of all households. Even those from Western countries, who are generally considered wealthy, suffer from rising food and energy prices. Pandemics such as Covid-19 and wars such as the one against Russia currently undermine the economic and financial stability of the countries.
It’s time to give people other possibilities to protect themselves from uncertainty. And this is where we can be happy with the arrival of bitcoin. This protocol encourages participation, resource creation and development.
Now that it is entering the stage of democratization, bitcoin will not be limited to secret societies like Bilderberg or Skull and Bones. Every company in the world will be entitled to the privileges associated with it. To say that these are simply satisfied with a simple name: the ” bitcoin “.
Recently, we have developed ideas on the first one bitcoin What is Diogenes? But you do not know that Satoshi Nakamoto created this digital currency that the world today is always talking about.
In principle, bitcoiners accept this: “ privatize the gains and socialize the losses “.
Bitcoiners, a leaderless society
Thanks to the Bitcoin protocol, the need for leadership disappears. Even his father Satoshi denied this title, since he decided to keep his identity a secret 2 years after the launch of BTC, in 2011.
Bitcoin is a participatory governance solution, capable of solving the problems of the Byzantine highs. Basically, it gathers members across the network, who do not need to see each other activate. A secret society of a kind that does not require meetings or instructions to achieve goals.
The advantage of bitcoin is that it will evolve as the web expands. So not more selective recruitment, initiation rituals, esotericism and the like. The main thing is to join the blockchain and basta.
Bitcoiners are indeed happy to gather around an idea. And an idea that says intangible heritage says no one can tarnish. In addition, its decentralized power frightens any institution. Yes, the power of centralized entities such as banks has diminished at bitcoin until they benefit more beneficiaries. And they are happy with the idea of separating forever from trusted third parties, which is considered too tight on a budget.
Another point to note: the possibility granted to the bitcoin to make improvements to the protocol. This privilege logically applies to members of the bitcoin community and not to others located on the periphery of the system.
This validates this quote:
” The king is better than the soldier, but he cannot follow the movement if he is surrounded. It is the strength of the community “.
By integrating this community almost like a secret society, no one will judge the bitcoin based on the size of its assets. And no matter how much BTC is involved purseit will always secure its clan, protect the protocol and contribute to the democratization of bitcoin.
Even politicians seem seduced by the idea of Bitcoin evangelism. You’ve probably heard of the assessments of American senators like Ted Cruz or Cynthia Lummis.
At the end of this presentation, we return to two points. First of all, this myth of secret societies is far from clear, in the context of the decline of the traditional financial system. Also worth mentioning is the magic of bitcoin, this asset that brings together freedom-seekers and slowly but surely integrates a new system that can make significant progress. for mankind. The ball is in our court now. Would we want a system that has bothered us for a long time and pushed us? Or would we, with the help of bitcoin, notice leaving space for new solar rays?
