    What about other secret societies?

    And certain techiques are only aviable for the intiated along with certain historical data?

    Which parts of their history did they hide? What techniques and historical data are only available to the initiated?

    You have an interesting topic if there's meat to it, but it's not quite clear where you're coming from with it.

    The Jedi and the Freemasons don't seem like a parallel to me. A far better example of a parallel would be the Jedi and the Knights Templar, specifically Order 66 and Great Jedi Purge, and the arrest of the Knights Templar on October 13, 1307 and subsequent arrests.
