Originally posted by jaamaanMay have seemed that way to you, but certainly not the case. I recently had the honor of meeting Chinese photographer Lu Nan who managed to self-publish three books, one each on Catholicism in China, the state of psychiatric treatment in China, and the peasant's conditions in Tibet, all while living under the Communist Chinese government. It was inspiring to me to see someone so dedicated to his work that he managed to scrape together funds and find people willing to print it entirely on his own and outside of official channels. All this while the only photography most people were seeing (or doing) in China was state-sponsored propaganda.
What i like to point out is that in the past only the elite seemed to have to power to have their work published.
But we're getting off topic.
I hate people who abuse Satanic ritual too. Knowing how Masons work, if there was some sort of Satanic ritual happening, there would probably be one old-timer in the corner clearing his throat and correcting all the other brothers who missed one word, or weren't standing in the right place.
