Freemasonry has been around for centuries, although very little is known about it by the common man. After all, Freemasons have always enjoyed an air of mystery that only adds to their appeal, making them even more special than they already are.

Joining the brotherhood is no easy feat. You have to be considered as somebody who is excellent in mental, spiritual, emotional, and ethical aspects, somebody who can be a true example of what a common man should be aiming for.
