"I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it."-

In the past 13 years since the inception of this site, we've NEVER received as much e-mail (cumulatively) about one individual as we have about Mr. Brad Cofield- Ed King-Masonicinfo.com

It may seem that we are being harsh to this individual, but only because everything he stands for flies in the face of our sacred traditions.

Understanding the art of the agenda- Part One


an underlying often ideological plan or program agenda>

I have to admit, I find human motivations fascinating. I have come to learn that no action undertaken by man comes without a distinct motivation. The consumer market floods me with images and enticements so that I may contribute to the bottom line. The Mormon who knocks on my door so that he may eventually convert me to his way to eternal life. The real estate agents drives a BMW to convey confidence and success.

The same holds true for the Masonic community. Everyone has an opinion about everyone else, and they all have their motivations. A specific agenda is always there, even if you don't know it.

The same is true with the 1613 Nation. The difference is that we, unlike many others are open and clear about our motivations and agenda. They are outlined by the 1613 Manifesto, in plain language and easy to understand. We state on all of our web pages who we are, what we do and what to expect. It all seems pretty simple to understand.

So what's the big deal?

Well, we have a lot of misinformation out there about us. This too, is also because of distinct motivations and specific agendas. It's pretty easy to spot once you know what you're looking for.

The first agenda, is one that is very popular. Some rather famous names in the mainstream Masonic community have been paying us a high amount of attention. Many have resorted to utter fabrication, in order to make us look, as a community below ethical.

Ask yourselves, what's the motivation? What is the specific agenda? To answer this look at the basic blood of the world, simple economics. many of these men either directly or indirectly make their living off of mainstream Freemasonry. Books, television appearances, speaking engagements etc. all amount to a pretty nice source of income. I fully understand this agenda and I have some respect for it. For these men (and some women) have found for them not only what they enjoy, but they can make their living from it as well. That's the American dream, the best of both worlds.

What we, the 1613 Nation propose is very dangerous to these individuals. We run on an agenda of personal empowerment and freedom. We intentionally show no respect for their authority. We pay no attention to their rules and restrictions because we know as we are not members of their organizations they have no authority over us. Freemasonry is no more owned by them as is owned by us. Freemasonry is just that; free. We make this part of our mission statement. We charge no dues, no fees, no tributes. We don't play on doing so anytime soon. We've eliminated both an economic motivation and the motivation of societal status from our platform.

When we put on our pragmatic glasses and look at the real situation, even though tiny and neonatal, the 1613 Nation and friends of it are very dangerous to the status quo. The motivation that is one of economics and social status is very understandable, and from where they sit totally understandable.

The more dangerous motivational agenda that really deserves no respect is the agenda of the institutionalised mind. We will examine that one in depth in my next installment.

It will be by acts rather than words that this battle can be won.
