The secrecy originally comes from the times of the Inquisition. If you held any other belief than the christian catholic church you ran the risk of
being hung or burned, which was why advanced concepts and scientific discoveries were kept secret.
The necessity of underground knowledge continued in world war 2 when Hitler banned Freemasonry.
So basically, anywhere there is Tyranny, you have to keep quiet about some stuff.
Since we live in relatively safe and peaceful times nowdays, there is no more need for secrecy. This is why most of the so called "secrets" of
freemasonry can be found in the Internet.
If the so-called, hypothized "New World Order" under totalitarian big brother rule would come to pass, YOU, spirit7, would be the very first to go
underground, hide your books and keep your beliefs secret.
I personally dont believe this will come to pass, but I do feel the need to point out that people demanding
"no private meetings!"
"nothing behind closed doors!"
are usually dictators, tyrants and control-freaks.
