I've always held the belief that the Masonic brotherhood is like an adult Fraternity, basically. The power doesn't come from the inherent organization
itself, it comes from the connections and loyalty that the brother's (and/or sisters?) have with each other both inside, and, more importantly,
outside the frat. This power wanes and waxes depending upon where the lodge is located, I bet. For example, I bet the Masonic Lodge in New York City
or Chicago contains "powerful" and "influential" people that could get you "places" much like being at the "right" golf club in your neighbourhood
would. However, a Masonic Temple in say...Nowhereville, Kansas, probably won't get you that much "power". It is just a club for the rich, powerful,
connected, or talented, if they choose to join it. The power comes with the people involved, not the organization itself.
It is nothing to be feared, but at the same time, something to be noticed and respected, I guess. That about sum it up, AugustusMasonicus?
