Did you know that one of the earliest 'thinktanks' was a secret society? The Fabians is one of the oldest British thinktanks.
Little has changed today. We don't recognise them as 'secret societies' because the term has become tainted, and is associated with the old world. But we don't live in a world where things are as they appear.
There are many secret societies in existence in England today. Members of the Fabians may no longer hope for Eugenics as they once did, but both Blair, Brown, and now Ed Milliband have consulted the Fabians on government policy. Demos is a Marxist thinktank related to the Fabians via the Young Foundation.
The Tories, too, have their 'thinktanks'.
They are nothing more than modern secret societies operating under the name of 'thinktank'. These 'thinktanks' may derive their geneology from Henry Ford's CASBS Foundation. Ford was a Scotiish Rite Freemason btw.
The only secret is that in our, "Democracy" the elected government is not the CEO, the thinktanks who create the policies, lobbyists and the companies on the FTSE 100 are. People must become more politically aware for democracy to exist in a true form.
God dammed do gooder Fabians, ****ing everything up
The Fabians are the true illuminati. They actually exist. And they actually influence government. They actually promote intrusive government and more global government. All to help people ofcourse, they are well intended tyrants.

I'd modify your statement to say that some thinktanks are secret societies. You're right to bring up the criminal influence certain organisations hold over the government however and to question the motives behind many of these thinktanks.
