Learn the fascinating history behind the founding of America and the esoteric underbelly of its design in this documentary. Follow the journey of secret societies from England to the New World and learn of their “ancient hope” of establishing a democratic commonwealth that would one day extend to all nations. In the 16th century, Sir Francis Bacon was at the helm of such societies as the leader of the Rosicrucians and first Grand Master of modern Freemasonry. As such, he is considered by some to be the true founder of America. When Bacon penned his classic work, The New Atlantis, he outlined his vision for the perfect society, a democratic commonwealth governed by scientific achievement. How were the founding fathers impacted by Bacon’s plan? And is America being driven by this vision today? Approx. 172 minutes.
