Secret Societies: The Never-Ending Story
Lecture no. 25 from the course: The Real History of Secret Societies
Taught by Professor Richard B. Spence | 35 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
Professor Spence provides some final examples of secret societies that reinforce what their common characteristics are and what their leaders are like. Taking an in-depth look at The Order—an American society of anti-Semites, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis—as well as FEAR (Forever Enduring, Always Ready), the Silver Legion of America (Silver Shirts), and others, he demonstrates how so many of these secret societies begot, influenced, or resulted in other ones, keeping the tradition going, suggesting that there are hundreds, if not thousands, more that have remained secret.
