< Previous Issue Higher Issue All Issues Next Issue >

What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


Mason Logol

Freemasonry is prominent throughout the World, specifically within the Anglo-Saxon tribes and their ex colonies. It is well known for exerting substantial influence. It has caused so many problems in the UK that to become a magistrate (a local junior judge that doesn't have to wear a silly wig) one must disclose the fact on the application form in full.

It was a difficult decision where to include this section in the 12-12-12 book. After much thought on the matter I decided against including it in section 7 (Religious and Spiritual issues) even though there are occult practices within its higher levels and against including it in section 6 (Business Commerce and Economic issues), even though Masonic influence is everywhere within the corridors of business. So, based on my personal experiences with Freemasonry - on the receiving end and not as an ex-member - I decided to include it within the Planetary Management Issues section of this book.

I direct full disclosure be made as to whether senior civil servants, judges and politicians belong to this male only society of secret codes, secret practices and secret handshakes.

It is up to shareholders to put pressure on their senior corporate officers of public companies to do likewise. As I've never been a Mason, I won't be breaking any oaths of secrecy by the enclosed little exposé.

Here is the blood curdling oath every Mason must make before joining this male only club which influences much of what goes on in the western World of business, justice and politics:

"… I further solemnly promise that I will not write those secrets, indite, carve, mark, engrave or otherwise them delineate, or cause or suffer it to be so done by others, if in my power to prevent it…. so that our secret arts and hidden mysteries may improperly become known through my unworthiness. These several points I solemnly swear to observe, without evasion, equivocation, or mental reservation of any kind, under no less a penalty, on the violation of any of them, than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by the root, and buried in the sand of the sea at low water mark, or a cable's length from the shore, where the tide regularly ebbs and flows twice in twenty-four hours, or the more effective punishment of being branded as a wilfully perjured individual, void of all moral worth, and totally unfit to be received into this worshipful Lodge, or any other warranted Lodge or society of men, who prize honour and virtue above the external advantages of rank and fortune. So help me, God, and keep me steadfast in this my Great and Solemn Obligation of an Entered Apprentice Freemason."1

All said and done, again speaking with personal experience, many Masons are honourable kind-hearted men who undertake lots of work for charities. I respect the ones who admit to their involvement but resent the ones that secretly use the Masonic organisation to obtain preferential treatment and commerce advantages. At least Shriners appear proud to admit to being Shriners!

I invite all such secret societies (of grown ups) to form their own new global unisex organisation. Alternatively, create a new male only fraternity called the "Free Sons of Man". The mission: to help the local community without ritual secrecy.

Anyway, the 33 degrees is not a new rather large boy pop band to come out of Nashville. It's the league table of the hierarchy within Freemasonry. Here it is:

The Thirty-three Degrees of Freemasonry1
