I remember once speaking with a high-ranking Freemason from their Washington, D.C., headquarters. He said to me, “Of course it is simply absurd to think that the Freemasons secretly rule the world, but I’ll tell you who does secretly rule the world: the Trilateral Commission.”The Men Who Stare At Goats
Late last year I happened to meet a gentleman who claimed to be both a Rosicrucian and a Freemason.
“Holy shit!” I shouted into his face over dinner. “You’re gonna be my cash cow! I’m writing a book about both those secret societies. It’s fiction, but, you know. I could use the real info.”
I never saw him again. I don’t know if he was protecting his societies’ secrets, or if I was wearing out my welcome with my chew-talking and spitting. Anyway. Missed opportunity. Consequently I just made everything up about the Rosicrucians and the Freemasons. It’s a fiction novel, so that’s okay.
