Did Freemasonry shape the actions of the liberators of South America?
Date: 11/16/2019 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: History
Presenter: Diego Segatore
Synopsis: The majority of Americans are aware that many of our founding fathers in the United States (and sizable proportion of our Presidents) have been Freemasons. What most don't know is that this fact was not relegated to only the northern section of the American continent (or two Continents, depending who you ask). The two main liberators of South America, San Martin in the South and Bolivar in the North), were active Freemasons while leading their armies in battle against the Spanish Empire. In Argentina in particular Freemasons were not just fighting in the battlefield against the Spaniards but also against the Clerical wing of the liberation movement in setting up the institutions of the new country. Many claim that the secular nature of the these institution, for example the public education system (something unheard of in Catholic countries) is completely due to Freemasons making the decisions. All of this brings us to the conclusion that the ideas that Freemasonry gives its brethren inevitably leads to thoughts of liberation and freedom from oppressive forces, surely there must be a link given all the hard data to support it.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
