Such a shame this will be their downfall because nothing good can come from any "Secret Society".
Except a benevolent society that keeps it's own borders strong against it, and protects it's own against oppression, through secrets if necessary.
On that note, we all have secrets, even to ourselves. For example, what were you doing at 1:30 in the afternoon of June 15th, EST? Or Don't worry
about it, I wouldn't remember either. We're all so exploitable to a clever minded movement against us once they start filling in the past with
inflammatory details which were worded as though it was "hard to prove". We can still have good conversations here about topics, once you move past
culpability directed with a certitude towards a long-standing defense. I don't expect the Mason's on this board to squirm over words either, and have
come to appreciate their (sometimes) long-winded replies over topics. It is at the least, very informative and relaxing to see long-standing members
braced with such goodwill and loyalty to the organization. The dominant entity of the movement, that is Freemasonry, has it's own class of being that
I can't deny has much merit in the building of character and form, and an angry "No!" to most outsider opinions who could not possibly, in a million
years, deep out, accurately enough for their perspective appreciation, the
"secrets" that have at least shaped their lives. The rest is a basic repetition to answering comments and concerns as a loyal duty to oneself and
their sense of order, which ... proportions itself back to basic human dignity, almost a cold understanding austerity which was forged from
experience, various mental anguish, and a confirmed distance of stance which is rightly theirs.
We could cut back some of the over-emotional context of the perceived struggle with a better understanding of theirs, and our stances. After all, it
wasn't "they" who authored the crimes against humanity we think link back to presently unmentioned sects of , but in a guilty-by-association sense, we
have to recognize how off-the points we are in terms to present members as a "guilty party". By who? Our "kangaroo courts" on this board, or a fair
and just long and intimate look at the inner workings and methods of a man or woman by those already known well to a being.
It's your emotional context and packaging. The answers are bound in scholarship, not a loathsome and pre-emptive strike on character that we neither
know, nor understand to any great probing detail. Strong fences make good neighbours.
The founding Bavarian Illuminati were worth looking into. One account in particular comes to mind; I'll post it if I come across it
