As you know, I've been studying Freemasonry for some time and I still have immense difficulty comprehending the extraordinary influence this 'blue light from the East' has had over civilisation, all round the world, not only in modern times but going right back to Cain.
One example I can give you is in my native City, London. You've probably heard of the Great Fire of London of 1666. There's some evidence that the City was deliberately raised to the ground in order to make way for a grand building project, spearheaded by a Freemason by the name of Sir Christopher Wren. After the fire, there was a Lord Hutton style inquiry in Parliament, into the causes of the fire because a major conspiracy was alleged. Of course, it was another whitewash!
The vision was that the City of London should become a 'New Jerusalem' but dressed in the garb of ancient Rome. St Paul's Cathedral (Church of England) was rebuilt and became the project's centre peice.
The area, destroyed by the fire of 1666, was a thriving city full of communal housing but today, barely anyone lives there. The City or 'Square Mile', as it's also known, has become famous for being one of the business capitals of world. A great column, about 202 feet high and bursting with esoteric symbolism, was erected by another Freemason (Cibber), 202 feet away from where the fire originally started and on top of the column is a golden ball of fire... the fire of the "illuminati". A similar column stands in Trafalgar Square but on top of that stands Masonic Brother Lord Nelson! At the time of 1666, there was also much animosity against the Catholic Church.

The Masonic drive to impress its hidden image over London still goes on... the latest projects being the collosal pyramid capped Canary Wharf Tower and the Millenium Dome.
I've amassed well over 15,000 files on the Sons of Cain on my hard drive and I don't collect any old trish trash!
It ought to be stressed, though, that many Masons are decent ordinary folk-next-door-types and upon initiation, they're not given any secret knowledge, apart from the secret masonic handshakes and signals. They're kept in the dark as to the purposes of the Order. It's not until they reach a certain degree of initiation that a selected few are given a glimpse of some of the secrets and by then the Brotherhood has them wrapped around their little finger.
Freemasonry's enterprising vision of creating a masonic Universal Church for the future will fail - keep an eye on the widescreen! We live in exciting times!
