The Freemasons, established in the 16th century, are a global ethical society rooted in the medieval guilds of craftsmen and builders. Today, this discreet society boasts approximately five million members worldwide. They are committed to personal growth and uphold the ideals of Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, Tolerance, and Humanity. Esteemed members have included figures such as Johann Wolfgang Goethe and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Despite their dedication to charity and moral improvement, the Freemasons frequently confront myths about malevolent intentions and quests for global domination.

Although these claims are often repeated, giving them a semblance of credibility, such repetition does not constitute truth.
