Los Caballeros Templarios was a HUGE story in Mexico a couple years back, pretty much everybody has at least heard about them
If they are so secret that no one knows about them they will stay so :)
t. secret society member
Fight Club… oh, wait. nevermind.
Looks like a Mexican KKK tbh
In Spain (and perhaps Italy and South America) Opus Dei are kind of like the local equivalent of the Freemasons in protestant countries.
They're known for owning property and somewhat suspicious business dealings, as well as heavy involvement in politics.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opus_Dei
You must be on the discord.
The problem with secret societies is that there's a lot of them that probably don't consider themselves so and probably think it's dumb to give them a name. Think of a group of five of your friends, what's the name of that group.
Also I think a lot of things you see locally are gonna be like the mayor, some condo developer and whoever owns the big factory or main source of income for the city. They'll agree to get people out of some part of the city to get a new factory and build some nice condos so everyone benefits. That's the society that's gonna effect most of us most directly
Take your pick. These clubs, particularly White's, were the breeding grounds for most of the "secret societies" you have heard about. Internally, in each of these clubs, there's a lot of very powerful people, with a lot of money floating about and a lot of people in other clubs (particularly military member clubs) that can get things done, that you haven't heard about.
"Hiding in plain sight" is a much better tactic than the cloak and dagger secret handshakes horse soykaf you read about from conspiracy theorists.
If you get really involved with your local religious group, you might find your way into a secret society.
Opus Dei gets a bad rap from soykaf like The Da Vinci Code, they're really just a normal group of Catholics. www.opusdei.org
