I hate to drop in uninvited and comment irritatingly in opposition to your mockery, but I wonder - do you claim that masonry is an altogether
positive force for good in the world, or do you concede that as with any well connected and yet widely dispersed group with fingers in many pies,
that abuses may indeed occur?
I don't intend to come across as overly contrary, but your 'apologetics' for masonry is invariably rooted in mockery and never fails to deny all
possibility that a proportion of persons amongst the fraternity are involved in abuses of power - some of which is rooted in the covert persecution of
those who oppose them.
As noted in my other response to you in the other thread in which we are interacting, it is a Damn Silly Thing to unquestionably and universally
defend such a vast range of people with different agendas and allegiances. Additionally it is somewhat immoral to openly mock people who disagree
with you (even when the person involved knows little about the wide range of intents and purposes of the practitioners of the wide variety of
different secret societies, perhaps labelling them all as 'freemasonry')
Interestingly enough, after commenting in only two threads regarding the certain errancy of blind allegiance to 'open to abuse' fraternities,
certain subtle threats against the general wellbeing of my family have been made. By no means is that the typical experience of a person otherwise
uninvolved with the interaction of such groups, and I don't claim it as such. For myself, threats of blackmail and the imposition of hardship are
typical. - therefore regardless of your response, I respectfully withdraw from further interaction on the subject.
I trust you understand - I'm in a delicate position, and it's best not to ruffle too many feathers - particularly as some people who are members of
such groups are seemingly favorably disposed towards myself and my family (though others are plainly not. ..)
All the best, FITO.
