>>>>>why that hate?
Many masons, including here, are hateful people
in the first place.
You wouldn't believe the amount of insults coming out of masonic mouths on this forum.
I don't think that I "hate" masonry.
On the contrary, I believe that masonry belongs
to the people and hence, is entitled to be reformed.
I envision a reform of masonry that would
make it better than it is now, and kill the
unneccessary fights happening here.
They are alienating aspects to masonry
but these can't be seen by those
who embrace it as it is, thinking that
it doesn't need to be changed.
Masonry wasn't created by God,
as far as I know. It is
a society created by human kind,
and humans have the power to
alter what they have created.
>>>>how can you say that they are not good for humanity and society.
They use money power provided by fanbase to bypass systems of democracy. They work using the beehive system, which is not democratic.
If people gave the money to society instead of the freemasons,
they could also build their hospitals.
Without endoctinating their patients.
>>>>it is both snobby and elitist
I am snob and elitist. I just don't use it against the people.
I believe in Plato.
If you have the pretention to see how you can turn
already existing systems into better systems,
than let it know. You at least have a right to express it
(though here sharing an opinion is often equalled with
a term caled "trolling").
So...I am thinking that for people who aim
at becoming better people, the masons
rarely ever consider turning their systems
into a better system.
There is no need for these quarrels.
As it is the masonry is not bereft of being
used for bad intentions. That is pure
hypothesis, perhaps, but nonetheless,
a proof that the system has failures.
Because for all great intention, the system
imitates a dictatorial structure. It's a beehive.
You can change that structure and keep the Shriners altogether.
That is what I'm trying to say,
