Symbology of dollar banknotes

There is a lot of controversy about the different symbols that appear in USA banknotes. The lovers of conspiracy theories have explained many of the symbols as related to Freemasonry and the Illuminati sect (the same one of the famous Da Vinci Code). In fact, many of the symbols of USA dollars refer to the origin of the country: number 13 appears in different places: 13 vertical stripes, 13 olive leaves, 13 arrows, all related to the 13 colonies which rebelled against Great Britain.

Paqui, I have read the information about the Freemasonry and the Illuminati sect, but I don't understand if they were good or bad and what were their objectives. I read that the Illuminati's objectives were freedom, equality and fraternity and also Weishaupt said that the way of reaching freedom was, mainly, education and that the Freemasonry introduce itself like a tool of formation to can develop the capacity of listening, reflecting and talking. But I don't understand why they were forbidden and if the objectives I read were their purpose.

That´s why these secret societies appeared. They promoted progress, but the fact that they were secret spread the idea that they had hidden purposes and they wanted to conquer power. These conspiracy theories appeared after the French Revolution and still exist, referred to different topics. Here you have a list of some of the most popular ones Including the one about Illuminati):
