Look guys.. I'm sorry for getting everyone so riled up in this conversation.
It must be frustrating to all of you masons to see these debates continue for year on end with no seeming resolution in sight.. undoing widely
dis-seminated disinformation is a long process.
I am sympathetic now to what it must be like to try and remove what people have added onto something that is so basic and neutral in its purest form.
And then for the added-on crap to become what others see the thing in its purest form to be.
So let it be said that I concede on all points. Freemasonry is a neutral pallette, to which has been added, lots of people's projections of spiritual
notions. Some good, some bad.. some from the inside and A LOT more from the outside (anti-masonry and general pseudo-research).
I guess it's a tool that has to be defended from getting into the wrong hands.. not for the reasons Hall proclaimed in his 20's, but because it is a
power-stick of sorts.
All of this occurred to me yesterday when a friend was coming at me about the Kabbalah being evil and I had to break it down for him, why it is not IN
ITSELF, evil. It can be a tool for evil, but so can ANY TOOL.
I'm sorry. It's just that I see the mass-scale cultural entrainment exercise that is entertainment (TV, news, movies, music), art, sports, education,
politics, energy etc.. etc.. and I can see that there is a global "cabal" who are dominating these "tools" and I can see that they have used the
occult and secret societies as "TOOLS" for their infiltration and indoctrination to push the "Aeon of Horus".
But it is not freemasonry or Kabbalah that is "causing" these *inherently human* problems.
