Secret Societies - And How They Affect Our Lives Today
by Sylvia Browne
Hay House, Inc.
ISBN 1-4019-1675-6
Published September 2007 - Hardcover - 231 pages - $21.95

Here we go again.  I can barely keep up with Sylvia Browne.  No sooner is one book published and then there's another waiting in the wings.  (See my list of her reviews.)  This one is about the sometimes covert groups of societies (if not covert, why all the secrecy?) that have been around for centuries, and basically, what they're all about.  Personally, I've always felt that some of these "societies" or organizations were always a cover-up for something sinister, and I never really had any time for people who belonged to them.  Especially if they had a superior air about them.  Not that I new many such people.  People in the public eye who seemed to have a holier-than-thou attitude, didn't and still don't get my attention or my sympathy when they fall foul of the law.  Sylvia's book is in three parts: Political, Religious, and "the dark side of all this secrecy - how fear and intimidation have been utilized by governments, religions, and underground organizations for centuries because they're so effective".  What I found alarming, was to learn that both president Bushes were/are in a society, and what the Skull and Bones Society is all about.  Cause for concern, people.  The other, the Council for Foreign Relations is just as alarming - who knew things were so "connected"?  Sylvia also covers the Trilateral Commission, The Bilderberg Group, and the Freemasons.  Among the other categories, she discusses The Knights Templar, The Knights of Malta, Opus Dei, the Illuminati, The "New World Order", and SCAN.  I think that a lot of the time we've heard mention of these groups but here they are spelled out and explained to us, naming names of members who mean something to us so that we can see for ourselves what she's getting at.  The goal in most instances, is a One-World Government.  Please God, no.  I don't pretend to fully understand these societies but I do feel that there is something sinister going on.  Why all the secrecy?  Power corrupts and should be feared and done away with in my opinion.

Conclusion - This is a 3-star book! - I strongly believe that everyone needs to read this book - it's for our own good.  By not knowing, there's little we can change.
