The Three Murderous Agencies of Society

15 Mar, 2024 | Blog

As recounted in the Masonic legend of CHiram Abiff, the three murderous agencies of society which seek to destroy Truth are the bigotry of the church, the tyranny of the state, and the fury of the mob.1

It will not be difficult to ascertain the chief murderous agency responsible for the imprisonment, torture, and death of that courageous and valiant soul, Alexei Anatolyevich Navalny.

But why was such ingratitude shown towards Navalny and what was his ‘crime’? As is invariably the case with reformers, their outspokenness evokes personal and political hostility both in full measure. In each and every case it is because of the clash between the ‘new’ and the ‘old’: the clash between the visionary and the dyed-in-the-wool establishment. As the establishment sees this tidal wave of change, it girds up its loins in ever more ferocious and tyrannical attempts to push back the surge and eradicate the emissaries of justice and truth.
