Mystery Babylon probably consists of many different groups and organizations that are both religious and secular including Freemasonry and many other so called secret societies. In the lower levels of these organizations, many of the members may not know about the purely evil intentions of the groups while the leaders and higher level members are fully aware of the wickedness that is behind the scenes. The ultimate goal is to create a one world religion and a one world government. Anyone who wishes can become a part of the system if they are willing to dedicate their allegiance to the new ruler. However, anyone who resists, will likely be executed. Very few people will be in a position to escape when the entire world will be required to submit to the new laws that include taking a mark of allegiance to the new dictator. Most people don't even want to think about it because it is so horrific that it would give people nightmares. However, being executed is not nearly as bad as the alternative.
