~grins~ Well, I'm no expert (either on Freemasonry nor on how to control the world), but the mere thought of one group of people actually controling the world (without the world knowing) seems, uhm, very odd to me (and a bit paranoid).

I think it can be said without doubt that there are certain groups of people (e.g. families with long-standing traditions, or people in control of regulating certain goods, such as oil) have more "control" over the world as others, but to infer that any one group of people (such as the Freemasons) would have total control appears to be something as a conspiracy theory to me...

Eventually, I believe the only way to diminish the (added and arguably disproportionate) influence that those groups of people have is, for each and every one of us, to diminish the influence money has on our perception and life decisions (e.g. once you decide that money will no longer control you, people offering you money lose almost all their influence over you; and if many people follow that logic, it will become very unattractive over time to be bribed with money, as it doesn't "buy" you additional influence)...

Well, just my two cents

Carina, have you Googled "Freemasonry" to get a definition?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freemasonry

Hardly sounds like they're planning to control the world.

All my relatives on my fathers side are in the Freemasons. My father is not because he got kicked out of the teenager version.

I do not know much about them. They are not really a secret society since there existence is known. but they are a society with secrets.

As for controlling the world i don't know. I know my uncle is one and he is very paranoid about the new world order. but he is not the sharpest tool in the box.. 

Women and black people are not allowed in the main lodges . Lodges are there name for the buildings they conduct there meetings in.

Black people have there own version. i don't agree with the exclusion but it is how they work.

Women are not Freemasons at all, they have a separate name. They are called eastern stars. There symbol in an upside down pentagram or star. I will not join because i know if a star is inverted it is an evil symbol. I could join but choose not too for this reason.

hope this info helps. I wouldn't worry to much about it. After all if they did run things, what difference will knowing it make.

The idea of Freemasonry was a large part of the United States's political history.  Alot of masonic symbols are prevalent in US culture such as on American currency.  (The eye on the pyramid is on the back of the dollar bill for example).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freemasonry#Signs.2C_grips_and_words

I can't say if the Freemasons are trying to take over the world.  But human beings, as a whole, tend to form small groups within a society for the purpose of achieving power.

Freemasonry, corporations, church's, and political parties are examples of where people feel compelled to associate with ONLY people who are in their eyes "like themselves".

This group think can be beneficial in things like some Church's, or groups can be evil like some corporations

There is safety and power in numbers. 

Now wether or not that power is used for uplifting others, uplifting the group's members only, or outright subjegation of non group members is entirely up to to that group.

I, personally, have a problem with any "group" that will purposfully exclude others. 

I think exclusion from a group is dehumanising.  In general.

Lenders and corporations are prohibited by law from descriminating against a person based on race or gender.

If a woman can not be a Mason I can only assume that this group is not regulated to follow the same laws that another group such as a corporation would follow.  And I believe Masonry, inspite of what ever financial or sociological benefits it offers memebers, is classified as an unpaid position.

Personally again, I think exclusion is dehumanizing, though it is human to exclude.  Lenders and corporations still descriminate on the basis of educational background and credit scoring.

Descrimination and exclusion definatly can serve to leverage one human above another.
