ON the site of a 17th-century monastery in Cartagena, Colombia, a sort of Illuminati of the business and political worlds gathered in February for their annual winter rites.
Drawn from government, banking, technology and beyond, its members form a rare — and global — power elite. Each has been tapped, in Skull and Bones fashion, by an existing member. Each searches out and grooms new talent — people who can add to this group’s considerable wealth, knowledge and power.
But men need not apply: this exclusive club is women-only.
It is called Belizean Grove, and if you haven’t heard of it, you’re not alone. Founded 12 years ago, it operates mostly under the radar. The first time it received any real public attention was in 2009, when it became known that Sonia Sotomayor, now a Supreme Court justice, was among its 125 or so members. (She has since quit.)
I thought it was worth the link for the fact that they mentioned the word Illuminati.
The original Illuminati actually flirted with the idea of instituting a female branch of the Order. But contrary to the assertions of some - Trevor McKeown in The Hidden Faith of Our Founding Fathers - rather than an emancipation, these Illuminatrixes would have been put to work as whores and spies. Similarly, the Bavarian Illuminati did not believe in “democracy,” as McKeown in the above-mentioned film also claimed. Their modus operandi was a cryptocracy. But once they gained power, a monarchy or an oligarchy were some of the choices mentioned for governing the masses. The day-to-day operations were run like a dictatorship.
