First of all Jesus berated Peter for denying him three times for fear of being exposed. But it is easy to find quotes, so to move back to the
If governments, including our own, or organizations, including the masons (although I was not speaking of them directly) use secrecy, we are asked to
trust them. Plain and simple, they are saying we don't need to know because they got it all worked out, and it is in our interest what they do
behind closed doors.
A very quick look at history will show this is not the case, even in the last 8 years we see a ton of evidence secrecy is used against the people not
to help the people. By giving a few examples, you ignore the point. Currently secrecy is being used against us not to help us, so we must make
things transparent until they deserve the trust they ask for.
Have a little courage, be prepared to face the fact some things may not work out so well, I agree, sure there may be some bad consequences, but they
are far fewer then a state under the boot of tyranny, which is where unchallenged secrecy leads.
If you want to give examples of how secrecy is protecting us, I will counter with the examples in history of what happens when society does not know
what power is really doing, those examples are at least as bad as any example 'powers that be' could type to try to scare people into accepting
secrecy and no accountability. Furthermore history also shows that fake scare tactics are used, not real ones to defend tyranny.
And as far as having responsibility, the responsibility you speak of is that given by others controlling secrets, my responsibility is shown by my
many decisions to post, the same responsibility every American citizen has. To speak up and question.
