There are actually two types of compasses and both are used in creating this scheme of 'who gets sacrificed'.
There is the precision instrument used by the engineers and architects. This compass represents the masterminds who plan and orchestrate events.
Then, there is the navigational compass used by the pirates who enforce the dictates of the schemers and planners.
Both of these compasses are used in the icons of religion/secret societies. (Religions are the downline operated by the SS)
One compass represents talent of the calculated criminal mind; the other represents cold blooded brawn.
Those who stand at the altar of sacrifice are those who plot and plan the wars, the annihilations, and the divisions of people by tossing out the bone of contention and argument. Jehovah provides for them by the spoils of war and slavery. These people are strategists. And the masses turn on each other rather than looking more deeply to see who has set them up with strife.
