Kate Hoolu - How is a secret society constructed
This is half tongue-in-cheek; a sociology checklist based on a magical order, rather than society at large. Please note, it is based on no real-life Occult Training Organisations in the magical field. Because they tend to sue… So, how is a secret society constructed? From a variety of smaller units; various groups joined by some common bond or bonds such as a jointly held secret (or, as some would have it, a cosmic joke that you are let in on, but only by degrees). Whatever the nature of the smaller units they are all comprised of the base building block of society: INDIVIDUAL HUMAN BEINGS.
