In the early 17th century two manifestos were published:

Fama fraternitatis (http://levity.com/alchemy/fama.html)
Confessio Fraternitatis (http://levity.com/alchemy/confessi.html)

In 2001 they released a third: Positio Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis (http://www.rosecroixjournal.org/resources/documents/G-20%20Manifesto%20Positio_101807.pdf)

In this last one they point out a utopian world:

God of all beings,God of all life,
In the humanity we are dreaming of:

• Politicians are profoundly humanistic and strive to serve the common good;
• Economists manage state finances with discernment and in the interest of all;
• Scientists are spiritualistic and seek their inspiration in the Book of Nature;
• Artists are inspired and express the beauty and purity of the Divine Plan in their works;
• Physicians are motivated by love for their community and treat both the soul and the body;
• Misery and poverty have vanished, for everyone has what one needs to live happily;
• Work is not regarded as a chore; it is looked at as a source of growth and well-being;
• Nature is considered to be the most beautiful temple of all, and animals are considered to be our brothers and sisters on the path of evolution;
• A World Government composed of the leaders of all nations, working in the interest of all humanity, has come into existence;
• Spirituality is an ideal and a way of life, which springs forth from a Universal Religion, founded more upon the knowledge of divine
laws than upon the belief in God;
• Human relations are founded upon love, friendship, and community, so that the whole world lives in peace and harmony. - source (http://www.rosecroixjournal.org/resources/documents/G-20%20Manifesto%20Positio_101807.pdf)
