Dare we step forward when so much seems to be incomplete? If the Rennaisance Period or the Age of Enlightenment was inhabitied with a proliferation of clerks and bureaucrats, their reports alone would create an overwhelming body of evidence to stop all work. Everything. Every innovation. Every variation. Every speculative science. Every study that was not consistent with acceptable fact.
That is the distraction of data bits that flow without context. While rogue venture capitalisms, the cowboys of exploitation dragged us to the brink of ruin they remained smug in their belief in the timidity of the pax populi. Better to accept a known failure than an unknown option.
I'm only guessing here but: a stream of updates (aka micro management) has errantly and prematurely given the receptive audience what they seek; the impression of incompletion. It is hard not to notice how well developed ideas seem unfullfilled? It happens with such endurance I began to be suspicious. Even if our Grand Lodge flipped a coin half the time we would have an outcome. Another factor is a play. I'd say its a possiblitywe haven't controlled our appetite for immediate results, even when a project requires time to develop and mature.
It is a simple idea which suggests it is likely accurate. Our disappointments are largely the product of our own collective need for a quick result.
Is it time for us to take an idea and continue to make adjustments until we get to the desired result. I refuse to accept that collectively we are incapable of this duty to our Craft. Our mistakes should never define us. Especially in the oldest fraternity in the world.
It is how we deal with mistakes, as true masons, that paves the path to our future. We could change...if we want it. Isn't that what this is all about? Five points...and now you know mine.
