Re: The Eye and the Pyramid
Yes, Bouncer, I do understand the advantages of Freemasonry as well. Problem is they come at too high a price and risk.
If Freemasonry actually did exercise some discipline over its members' personal conduct, instead of just whether or not they give away the organization's secrets, it could be a benign and even commendable institution. I am told that some early versions of the Christian church operated along covert guidelines similar to Masonry in many ways, e. g., secret signs, symbols, etc. in order to avoid detection and persecution by the Roman Empire.
But in its current form the Craft simply allots too much secret power too indiscriminately.
