I was wondering if there is a Marxist perspective on Fraternities,
cults and secret societies. Is this another variable in the Capitalist
equation of exclusivity. Did Marx say anything about this particular

This thought was inspired by a local Talkshow in which the Freemasons
were discussed. It got me thinking when people started saying things
like: 'Freemasons rule the world, manipulate markets, look after each
other etc. Some went to the extent of saying 'almost all the American
Presidents are Freemasons'. Is this true ? If so, is there a Marxist
analysis to explain it all.
