What are some fascinating secret societies to read about?

Ku Klux Klan
> Founded: 1866
> Mission: Advocates white supremacy
> Well-known members: Robert Byrd, David Duke, Hugo Black
The Ku Klux Klan was founded by Confederate Army officer Nathan Bedford Forrest and was violently anti-African American, anti-immigrant, and anti-Catholic. After dying out in the 1870s, it was reborn during the Prohibition era and had another resurgence after World War II in its opposition to civil rights. Though its power is greatly diminished, the KKK remains a formidable hate group in the United States.

Skull and Bones
> Founded: 1832
> Mission: Said to play role in plot to dominate world
> Well-known members: George H.W. Bush, John Kerry, William F. Buckley, Paul Giamatti. In 2009, the club was sued by the descendents of Geronimo who claimed members of Skull and Bones stole the skull of the Native American icon in 1918 and put it in a glass case.
The oldest and most prestigious club at Yale University, Skull and Bones members include presidents, Wall Street bankers, chief justices, and the founder of the CIA. Among the wilder conspiracy theories associated with this club is that it is an offshoot of the Illuminati and is bent on world domination.
The Order of Chaeronea
Poet, radical freethinker, and early gay rights activist George Cecil Ives founded a secret society called the Order of Chaeronea, which was established to end the oppression of homosexuals and offer a safe space for gay men to communicate. It was named after the Battle of Chaeronea (338 BC), where hundreds of men from the Sacred Band of Thebes, all of them lovers, were killed. “An elaborate system of rituals, ceremonies, a service of initiation, seals, codes, and passwords were used by the members. The Secret Society became a worldwide organization and Ives took advantage of every opportunity to spread the word about the “Cause.” Ives unsuccessfully tried to recruit Oscar Wilde after they met at the Author’s Club in 1892. Just a few years later, Wilde’s sexuality would land him on trial for gross indecency, after which he was imprisoned.
from what I have read

1. the Illuminati a group of extraordinary thinkers all together to protect interest of science against the growing influence of religion.. some of the most renowned names are/were said to be members .. and they meet in secret places to discuss various ideas.. and even joining this society requires you to pass some very difficult tests

2.free Mason's: The legend says that Illuminati grew and later got inducted into the free Mason's

3 priory of sion.. the most controversial group which. date guards the bloodline of Christ and also holds possession of several documents that are of immense value

Online:While their existence had been speculated for years, internet-based secret societies first became known to the public in 2012 when the secret society known as Cicada 3301 began recruiting from the public via internet-based puzzles.The goals of the society remain unknown, but it is believed that they are involved in cryptography and cryptocurrency.
The only secret society abolished and then legalized is that of the philomaths.it is now a legitimate academic association founded on a strict selection of its members.
