Freemasonry as a body holds no political views and this Grand Lodge will not allow its name to be associated with any political position. Freemasons—as active citizens— are encouraged to participate in the political process as individuals, but not as freemasons. The following books do not represent the views of this Grand Lodge nor is their inclusion here to be construed as an endorsement.

The real conspiracy
Conspiracy theorists generally fall into two camps: self-serving opportunists with a book or video to sell, and those who are simply trying to make sense out of a world they have no control over. Both are looking for patterns in historical and current events. Both have a tendency to oversimplify by fitting people, ideologies and events into comfortable pigeon holes with simplistic labels such as Illuminati, New World Order, or Zionist Occupational Government. The freemasons are often included in this shadowy group.
There are real conspiracies. Many of them are related. Many of them have been exposed by investigative journalists and corporate or government whistle-blowers. Their existence is no theory, but a very frightening reality. These books detail—with citations, references and facts—real conspiracies. It is unfortunate that the hucksters and paranoid cranks have so debased the term conspiracy that the real conspiracies, the real danger to a free and open society, so often go unreported or unremarked.
