Parinoid Much?

Occult knowledge or an awareness of mystery wisdom or spiritual science or whatever you want to call it has been around since before ancient times; in different cultures throughout the world and since always. Freak out about 'The Illuminati' if you will but wide-scale psychological manipulation of entire societies has occurred as a phenomenon time and again throughout history, in recent history, right now, and before history was even being recorded. The Freemasons most certainly didn't invent any of that knowledge nor are they at all the only ones now aware or previously aware of the fact that others have and do very much believe in such things and do now and have in the past used occult wisdom toward sociological manipulation. Whatever it was that a long time Christian in your family discovered that wasn't in line with the sensibilities of his Christian dogma and doesn't for the sake of your peace want for you to know about isn't anything new or anything the Freemasons came up with for themselves.
Personally, I think it is a good thing that local boys that will be diligent in looking out know about such stuff.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead
