FK – This is interesting from a historical perspective, minding what Napoleon said about history. It seems to have been created for the benefit of Masons or pending Masons. As far as proving the org.’s innocence in larger world affairs it does little.
Anyone can be a lower ranking member of an org. or institution or whatever and believe or think it really stands for the official purposes but unless one is directly involved in the upper rings of power or whatever one cannot honestly comment on their activities but only trust in their word. Only a child does such.
I’ve read part of Pike’s book that I found several years back in a thrift store. It can be bought on Amazon. I agree with some of what he wrote but not all. I’ve been told by someone more educated than I in ancient philosophy that Pike got some things wrong. Many evil activities have been shielded by shiny words and works. See the early 20th Century. See the current tool in the now red house and those running to take its place.
I can see where hardcore Christians would agree out of hand and vehemently with Pike’s idea of an ideal world or whatever, likewise the fundie ragheads. I also noted how the current Mason supported the ‘official’ version of 9/11.
I would prefer a world, that I know I won’t be here to see for it is many generations away, where all live in respect for human Liberty and where the governments of the world are forced by the arms and resolve to use them of the common people to likewise respect it.
Sadly we are still a very primitive species and still exist in a very dark age and millions or billions more may yet have to die because so many of us insist on clinging to the darkness of the past and the collectivism of the present.
Case in point:
Limited Nuclear War Within 18 days as Saudis (and Friends) mass 350,000 troops, 20,000 Tanks, 2,450 Planes, 460 Helicopters for Syria Invasion
FK – While I wouldn’t say that scenario is impossible it’s likely the Soviets, excuse me, the Russians, have a sufficient military force and technology to discourage Saudi Arabia. Israel, if it’s also involved in that mess as some claim, might be another issue.
Let’s go ahead and kill millions and/or billions over ancient tribal propaganda. It’s the human thing to do.
