Several things didn't seem right about that show. It caused me and others watching to suspect that this was more of a propoganda machine
against the Masonic order rather than in favor of it.
True, they were redeemed in the end, but as has been mentioned above, how many people really stayed around until then to hear it? I'm kind of curious
about who really put out the video. I mean, for all intents and purposes, it appeared to be an anti-Masonic video until the 1hr 30min mark.
Then a decidedly positive swing came through, almost as if they supposed that everyone that they wanted to really "reach" had already left. I'm
still scratching my head on this one.
I even noticed at the start of the second hour mark that they hadn't yet answered one single question out of those that they asked at the beginning
of the show. They even went so far as to ask these same questions AGAIN!! They seemed to be being very methodically redundant, covering the same
material twice; almost as if to drive people to turn the channel. This leads me to wonder who's sending what message out. They'll always be able to
say that they promoted a good message, for those that stayed. Yet they (and presumably we) understand that they were really just utilizing a very
well-known psychological tactic to sway public opinion against the Masons.
This tactic I speak of is when someone watches a person's behavior, and notes how they react to what kinds of stimuli. They take a general
demographic of the population that watch these kinds of shows, and gear the show's contents accordingly. To try and keep public backlash to a
minimum, they cover the good stuff at the end, as if that'll make up for the previous one and a half hours of negative connotations.
True, the Masons don't give a rat's behind what anyone really thinks about this, since it's everyone's god-given right to think as they will, but
it's also disheartening to think that some people would intentionally take advantage of another's cognitive reasoning. Still though, the only thing
that puzzles me here is what do the people that made this film have to gain by the negative image that they've propogated to those that didn't
finish watching the show? What's the real agenda here?
Something's terribly out of place here...
Who's doing this? And why?
