The concept of secret societies has not only infatuated the wild imagination of children, but of adults as well. The mystique, the thrill that it provides, of being a part of something that no one else knows about, the sense of circumventing the establishment and the ‘normal’ world around you — who could pass up that kind of rush?!?
Every secret society started somewhere — with a group of unknowns who eventually managed famous deeds, or were made famous by the deeds of their successors, which escalated the total brand value of their society. The point is, you don’t need to be another George Washington to head your own secret society. Ever heard of John Heath? No? Well, he’s the fellow who started the American Greek student system in 1776, because he failed admission into the two existing Latin fraternities at his college. Today, the result is not only a thriving and flourishing system, but it counts as the pinnacle of US collegiate social life for most students, and provides a valuable network of alumni, including ex-Presidents, Senators, Fortune-500 CEOs, and many other notables among its ranks. But beyond their potential future impacts, secret societies are fun! And they’re so incredibly easy to start, it’s a surprise there aren’t hundreds of them. Oh wait, maybe there are? I guess we’ll never know, since we can’t count them if they’re secret.
Are you eager to create your own secret society or club? This book has all the information you’ll need to get started. The first rule you need to know is: Respect the ‘secret’ part of secret society, and don’t discuss any details with your boyfriend’s best friend’s uncle’s girlfriend’s cousin just to show off how clever you are. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, continue reading and you’ll have your secret society up and running in no time!
