Cheek and cops and troops and stuff. Templars, yep, they were "bad dudes", invented banking as we know/use it, thats why its all in SWITZERLAND, woohoo, home of the Nazis, woohoo! The Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria were Templar owned ships, if I recall. Freemasonry is basically a blueprint for corporate business hierarchy, as far as I can tell. It's the capitalist businessman's religion. I think they invented the suit and that leash they call a "neck-TIE".

I am very familiar, being the grandson of a Shriner ;-) Was a DeMolay (Templar leader) as a teen. Chevalier and Master Councilor in fact, at Lodge #1 in my state (the Lodge for the grownups ... I wasn't a leader of the grownups). Enjoy National Treasure (first movie)? The mythology of Freemasony is quite ... interesting.
It was the Hospitallers who were the bad dudes. Templars are given a bad rap because of association. The Templars created Gentile banking (in the Middle Ages, banking had existed in Rome prior to that). Jews have been in international banking (local banking not so much) because of obvious advantages for millennia.
It was king Louis XIV who invented the business suit (his version was court dress however) and the neck tie was invented by the Croatian men (cravat is corrupted pronunciation of Croat) about 200 years ago. It was the continental Illuminati/Freemasons who, unlike the Anglo-American version, were revolutionaries, who brought about the Gerondin portion of the French Revolution. Then things got out of hand. The Catholic Church considers them to be an existential threat, over 100 years before the Bolshevism. Well now America has its merchant prince. Let the original Enlightenment resume (in Italian Mafia terms).
