It’s All About Friendship And Brotherly Love
As far as secret societies go, the Freemasons are actually one of the least scary ones. The main goal of the Freemasons is to create a fraternity between men. This bond will help nurture friendship, morality, and brotherly love.
This belief system is why they chose the square and compass as their standard emblem. Members use the tools of stonemasonry (where the symbol comes from) to come together and learn how to stay together, even through times of disagreement and bloody wars.
