It doesn't matter if you whole-heartedly agree with the perceived agenda of secret societies, such as the Illuminati or Freemasons, but when you capitalize off of building your business to reflect the symbolism of such groups – you're still supporting them in a way that influences others to accept the symbolism. All across the nation, as well as abroad, there are businesses, products, and companies that intentionally embrace the signs, symbolism, and meaning behind organizations, such as the Illuminati.
Whether done as a playful pun, to make a statement, or to simply drum up controversy – the following enterprises are making money off of supporting imagery, such as the all-seeing eye, illuminated pyramids, and typical word associations.
