that folks that are not a part of a fraternity seem to feel they are entitled to:
a) Know the secrets of the group
b) comment on the private activities of the group
c) regulate the activities of the group
By what RIGHT does anyone feel they have a claim to know what goes on in a group to which they are not invited or a member?
How much paranoia does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Just because you do not know what is going on behind closed doors does not make what is going
on behind them nefarious. Do you swing the doors open to the world on your sexual practices with your wife/significant other? Do you post your
checking statements on the internet for the world to peruse? If not, why not?
I do not care what Sigma Chi does... that is between them and their members, and if they want to stand on their heads in a coffin and sing glory be to
the highest while holding a cooked turkey... who cares?
As for conspiracies... oooohhhh aaahhhh, key the X Files music.... get a life. The Old Boys network is alive and well, and why not? If I am hiring for
a job, I do not see anything wrong with hiring a known quantity. As a Mason, I go out of my way to find a brother providing a service I need, because,
I KNOW I CAN TRUST A BROTHER, and since I am contracting the service, I can hire whomever I want.
Can anyone else say they don't? If someone you went to school with was a mechanic and you needed a mechanic... and you could trust the guy, wouldn't
you go our of your way to give him your business?
So all this paranoia and sturm und drang is just wasted energy.
