Due to its secretive nature, Freemasonry has long been a target of conspiracy theories in which it is either bent on world domination or already secretly in control of world politics. Subjects of such conspiracies often involve linked symbols and numbers associated with Freemasonry, however coincidental. Freemasons say that most conspiracy theories lack proper evidence.

Conspiracy theories involving Freemasonry

  • Some Anti-Masons have been known to say that Freemasonry is a Jewish front for world domination, or is at least controlled by Jews for this goal. An example of this is the notorious (and widely noted as fraudulent) The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Hitler outlawed Freemasonry partially for this reason.[2] The covenant of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas claims that Freemasonry is a "secret society" founded as part of a Zionist plot to control the world.[3]
  • Freemasonry is the Illuminati or New World Order, and secretly controls all aspects of society and government.[4] This concept was satirized in a Simpsons episode, "Homer the Great", featuring an order called the Stonecutters who keep "the Martians under wraps" and "Atlantis off the maps".
  • Freemasonry has political influence over branches of the US government including the CIA[10], NSA[11], FEMA[12], NASA[13] and the United States Congress.[14][15]
  • Various figures in popular culture are Freemasons, including movie producers such as James Cameron.[16][17]
  • Jack the Ripper was a Freemason whose murders resembled Masonic initiation rituals. This is the subject of Alan Moore's graphic novel From Hell, who references various works by other authors with similar claims.
  • The September 11 attacks were astrological in nature, as part of a hidden war between Masonry (as descendants of the Knights Templar) and Islam.[18]
  • The Freemasons were involved in the JFK assassination. Some conspiracy theorists say that Freemasons had JFK killed.[19]
  • The Denver airport contains a Freemason symbol and keypad, of unknown purpose. An underground facility is said to exist in case of nuclear attack.[20]
  • Freemasonry is responsible for crop circles.[21]
  • Freemasons intertwine various symbols and numerology into modern culture, such as corporate logos.[22]
  • Most Freemasons are unaware of hidden or secretive ruling bodies that govern their organization, conduct occult ritual, or control various positions of power. This is an example of a secret society within a secret society.[23]
  • The owl is a hidden Masonic symbol found in the layout of the US Capitol building and the US dollar bill.[27]
  • Freemasons hold meetings with influential politicians and businessmen at Bohemian Grove. The worshiped statue of an owl is an alleged masonic symbol.[41][42]

Notes and references

  1. ^ Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler, Volume One - A Reckoning Chapter XI: Nation and Race , 1924, Translated 1943, 'Mein Kampf' - "Finally, the Jewish influence on economic affairs grows with terrifying speed through the stock exchange. He becomes the owner, or at least the controller, of the national labor force. To strengthen his political position he tries to tear down the racial and civil barriers which for a time continue to restrain him at every step. To this end he fights with all the tenacity innate in him for religious tolerance-and in Freemasonry, which has succumbed to him completely, he has an excellent instrument with which to fight for his aims and put them across. The governing circles and the higher strata of the political and economic bourgeoisie are brought into his nets by the strings of Freemasonry, and never need to suspect what is happening."
  2. ^ Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler, Volume Two - The National Socialist Movement Chapter XIII: German Alliance Policy after the War, 1924, Translated 1943, 'Mein Kampf' - "The fight which Fascist Italy waged against Jewry's three principal weapons, the profound reasons for which may not have been consciously understood (though I do not believe this myself) furnishes the best proof that the poison fangs of that Power which transcends all State boundaries are being drawn, even though in an indirect way. The prohibition of Freemasonry and secret societies, the suppression of the supernational Press and the definite abolition of Marxism, together with the steadily increasing consolidation of the Fascist concept of the State – all this will enable the Italian Government, in the course of some years, to advance more and more the interests of the Italian people without paying any attention to the hissing of the Jewish world-hydra.
