Let's presume we are all smart. We take life seriously. Exposure to history and philosophy, the arts and classical literature are deliberately planned during childhood.  All people are to be treated fairly. We expect to live a good life, under government accountable to us.  Our soliders are well equipped, heavily trained and make us prepared to defend our way of life. Utopian.

With all the uncertainties of life, we are constantly surprised by changes happening around us. Orators define some as liberal or conservative or secular. We experience outbreaks of tribal violence. The good life includes a fountain of youth and youthful exuberance view until the grave.  We have appliances that demystify but bring an undertone that some unknown source is always better. The way we connect with each other has changed. Privacy has become a commodity. It is daunting to think how much universality, will be needed by a world that does not know what a freemason knows.Anachronistic but relevent. Fraternal yet universal. Historical yet contemporary. We continue asking the unanswered questions. Life? We know our entrance and departure are as singular as conscience, as courage, and belief. 

Craft masonry, the atmosphere of the lodge, and preservation of the landmarks are unchanged though some might want to persuade us otherwise. 

Freemasonry provides a rich pallette of ideas if one is a seeker. Freemasonry was never intended to be absolute or clear. It tests commitment, virtue and and authenticity. Natural justice renders the result inevitable, stark and irrefutable.  Failure; such an interesting perspective that one.
