You're right, I don't know all about all the other members, but I know about Masonry. If another member takes actions that are not in-line with the
philosophies of Masonry, then they are acting alone, on their own behalf, and it shouldn't be reflective of Masonry. Now, if there is ever a time
where the majority of Masons are acting in some particular way, then it should be brought to our attention.
Right now, on the internet, people want to construct some elite group at the top, ascribe some nefarious purpose to that group, and then color the
whole of Masonry by that constructed belief. #1, that is illogical. #2, if such a group even existed, and if the conspiracies were correct, it would
still just be a small group of criminals, not some Masonic agenda.
If an elite group of math professors started meeting privately and discovered they could bring down the whole economy by a systematic form of online
daytrading, and they did it. It wouldn't mean all math professors were part of some conspiracy group, it would mean a small portion of that group
was off the reservation and acting out illegally and contrary to what the rest believe.
That is the frustrating part for Freemasons. Even if all the conspiracies were true, it would still just be a small group of criminals, acting
contrary to the belief of the majority, and acting outside the approval of the group, so in fact, they wouldn't be Masonic at all.
