The world might have an appetite for war and tolerance of poverty but not so the people living it. Distorting history is used by despots to justify starting a fight. At a certain point our intelligence takes us beyond class distinction to remove barriers to discovery. We desire a good life. We study to understand character but in an age of celebrity it seems harder to find the bigger man. We should be wary of humanist philosophy; far from dormant, laying claim to the function of an Order completely unknown to the participants. The maths doesn't matter as long as the physics work. Metaphysics? Replace that with philanthropy. Social class? Create one fraternal class and control entrance. The love affair with those ideas will never cease. But as reality must fall short of expectations, we ignore all of that and become harsher and harsher. We would then want leadership to function with that sense of realistic limitation but tightly wrapped in a desire to move forward. Daunting? Yes. Fulfilled? Never. Radio Free Mason will discuss the balance points as we explore the ideas of freemasonry. Graham

Many people have a belief they are complete, the full package. Not so. Human beings are in an unassailable state of change. Practical men prepare first to make a living. How to live a good life is a daunting task that requires and different type of preparation. Money? can't but respect. Fame? doesn't guarantee completeness. Power? corrupts. All much easier than understanding truth has more than one dimension. Can a man find an ethical 'right life' through freemasonry? With his own dedication, opportunity and sincere mentoring he may always be in a state of incompletion but closing in on his goals. How we are known to others, should matter. So learn the meaning of hubris; what the arts can express about the human condition; how a balanced life is possible; why a statisfactory life does not come from a recipe. 'A life unexamined is not worth living.'
