It's a place for businessmen who are in high-pressure careers to let off steam. They may invent little rituals and games and goofy stuff, like they have one night where they put on crazy skits, but mostly they relax and/or party. Different status people get grouped together. So when Reagan and Kissinger attended, people of that level attended with them, and people lower-down on the status ladder get grouped with each other, and the local Rotary Club members get grouped together, each group scheduled in their own separate session. That sort of thing. Business is not done there, no networking or anything like that is allowed, as the article said, because people are there to unwind, not to be used for business connections. People do not attend to decide the fate of the world. Mostly, they're too drunk; "liquor flows like water" there, I was told. Maybe in the most exclusive groups, like Reagan, et al, some hobnobbing and idea development happens, that I couldn't say for sure. But overall, it's nothing like people imagine.

You should research the Freemasons and the Rosicrucians. REALLY research them, the history of what their group grew out of.

The unknown or belief of others is creepy? Pagans were here first fyi. Then the christians came and invaded.

you need to further investigate the matter. there is a lot of creepy stuff that goes on there, not to mention the fact that I'm skeptical as to what "good" a large group of some of the most influential people in the world are plotting in such secrecy.

I'm not a pagan, but they aren't all bad. They do some rituals but most aren't spooky or creepy.

Now satanism cant GTFO fast enough.

Be careful what you say, you may invoke the wrath of the spirits!
Ha, I've always loved that stuff ever since the movie The Craft.

Witchcraft stuff is a metaphor for a woman's natural power, which can be almost magic-like. It's not tactile. It's her expressiveness, the air she projects - the power to soothe her child, to de-stress her husband, to stop her man from fighting, with the right touch or the right look. I can easily imagine if I were ever really pissed my woman culd stop me from fighting with the right smile and a "calm down".
And it never hurts for a woman to know how to actually use it. I'm not referring to the Ocuult stuff, just in general. I feel like people in general are disconnected from their deeper, more animal selves. For example, I've never seen anyone realy PLAY with a dog, like DO the playing with the dog, like the dog does, get in there, wrestle, run, bark (yell). It's what you;re supposed to do, and should be able to do.

Plotting rarely, if ever, occurs there. It's not "secrecy", it's privacy, so people won't get laughed at doing their hijinks, and tabloids can't photograph community leaders or bigwigs stumbling around drunk, and then use the photos against them. Look at what happened to Kate Middleton, when she and William thought they were having a private vacation. Jeez, use your head.
