My personal take on Freemasons is that they are essentially a diversion/camoflage for the Cabal.
The Cabal is alive and well, and has been so for over 400 years. However, the Cabal is very well concealed and away from the public eye. How do they achieve this, while still holding such sway over the direction of the world, over hundreds of years?
Very simply, the best camoflage is to hide things in plain site. How is this accomplished? By making what you wish to hide seem unimportant and non threatening, while providing a diversion that draws all the attention of those seeking what is percieved as a potential threat.
Thus was born the Freemasons.
There are no other shadow societies with such a long history of shady origins than the Masons, and more interesting than that, none other that are so well known.
By deffinition, a secret society should be secret. However, the Masons are an open, public secret. As such, it acts as a diversion, a magnet for those seeking such secret societies.
In order to propogate this illusion, the Masons themselves tend to believe that they are indeed some semi-historical secret society where some imagined code or geneology separate thier membership from joe smith on the street.
The truth is the Masons, and thier entire code of conduct and belief system exists simply as a cover for the Cabal to continue on with thier plans completely out of view of the public.
As for masons. Gotta love 'em. Dudes like ol' Freemason here do a good job. They make the rest of 'em look a helluva lot nicer than they really are!!!!
