I don't want any help from the Masons lol. But i didn't know that, though.
I think the need to congregate with other men, and be a part of an organized club of like minded men, and do men stuff, is what keeps members coming. I think that lower member don't know about the true utilization of masonry, nor is it revealed to them. That's why they let the masons take the book home with them. On the surface, it won't have anything offensive or strange to notice. Not those books, at least.
What have you learned so far from the books you are reading?
