There was probably a time in world history, maybe even recent history, where the idea that you shouldn’t stab someone in the face for a minor slight against the character of your family pet was a revolutionary philosophy. Now it seems pretty common sense to most people. Well, depending where you live, I suppose.
There are three types of Freemasons I’ve found in my travels. Those who are new to Freemasonry and are confused by what all of this is supposed to mean to them; those who have been Freemasons for ages and are confused as to what all of this is supposed to mean to them; and those who are so egotistical as to think they know what Freemasonry means, and get visibly upset when you don’t understand what they’re talking about.
