Where exactly does the so called "inner circle" of "real" leaders fit into place?
It stems from the past, when the order was smaller in scope, and many important Masons played a key role in shaping and defining America.
For example, most of those signing the Declaration of Independence were Masons, and the Boston Tea Party was planned at a Masonic lodge, by Masons.
While it's true that many powerful people can be found amongst its membership, that doesn't mean that they plot together in some kind of cabal.
Indeed, the Masons are largely, from the Masons I know and acts I've witnessed, extremely community-minded, and generally very good people.
I may even pledge myself someday...especially if I can get some of my Judge instructors to sponsor me...
