American Masonry: a comedy of Neo-McCarthyists.
In the United States, since a third of all regular Masons are also members of the Shriners and / or the Jesters, Masonry in the US seems just to be a social club where many adherents have rather ridiculous and childish rituals and use their membership as an excuse for drunken parties and having sex with prostitutes; this has absolutely nothing to do with Illuminist ideals; further most US Masons appear to be Neo-MacCarthyist anti-Communists, anti-Socialists and evangelical Capitalists and Nationalists; if there has been an attempt to infiltrate American Masonry by political radicals, it seems to have entirely failed.
This is nothing like what Freemasonry is.
Contradiction one-liners are a poor substitute for argument and evidence. As I have already pointed out to you on another thread, "Freemasonry" is simply a metaphor; Freemasonry does not exist in reality; only "Freemasons (i.e., persons who are Freemasons) exist. Thus your statement "This is nothing like what Freemasonry is. would be better expressed as "This is not what Freemasons are like" in which case I welcome argument and evidence in support of your position.
