Good guys.....Bad guys.....if only the universe was really constructed in such a manner.
In comic books perhaps.
Are Illuminati or Freemasons good? That is a complex question that requires a complex answer.
Strauss argued that once humanity reached a point of peace and tranquility..(the Homogenous state) that would be the death of all humanity. For Strauss believed that the greatest aspects of being human are war, glory, struggle, and victory. He envisioned the death of these things as the death of man.
It would also be the death of politics because in an age of peace...the lower segments of society would begin to ask questions about why some poeple seem to have so much while they have so little. These peons might even begin questioning why certain people have power of governance at all??
To avoid this, there must be war and an enemy...and an occasional destruction of society as we know it in order to assure future human struggle. Strauss argued that we must be thrown back to the stone age on occasion.
The only problem is to do this 6 or 7 billion people must die.
Now is Strauss right or wrong??
Keep in mind Hitler was a believer in Strauss.....and so are the people we have termed Neo-cons.
So back to the question...are secretive societies which seek to demolish us in order to free us "Good guys?"
I don't think so. But it is very debatable.
Everyone should watch these videos at Google. I found them today after watching David dIcke. There are 5 videos called "The Legend Of Atlantis". I'm busy watching the fourth right now. They talk about the Brotherhood Of The Snake, The Illuminati & the Free-Masons; their origins, their mission and their goal.
I'm still trying to work out whether the videos are pro-Illuminati or anti-Illuminati, or simply disinfo to condition us to accept a "faux" alien invasion to unite the world as one under the NWO.
Anyway, there may be answers to the questions asked by the OP. Enjoy!

The second video about Hitler, the occult and the Thule Society is brilliant.
