It’s not the money though. It’s frat-boy thinking. Loyalty. Nothing leaves the group. Swear a pact. There’s groups like that in all levels of society but in the level of the powerful and influential, it can get scary.

Secrecy I think.

I’ve nearly gotten pulled into this kind of group more than a few times in my life, but I have a “law enforcement” way of thinking:

“Don’t say anything more, I don’t wanna know because if I know, then I’m responsible.”

I’ve had to say that and walk out of things, even though my gossipy side really wanted to know.

It’s probably because I was raised with movies that always show secret pacts ending in disaster.
