THE DEMOCRATIC DECALOGUE

I wasn't going to put this up, because it is not specifically fraternity related. But then Euripides asked me "pretty please", so here it is.

This article is entitled "The Democratic Decalogue" which consists of a reprint of a LOOK Magazine article from 1963. Basically, the author describes ten ideas for making Democracy work. ts as applicable today as it was over 40 years ago, not just generally but Masonically as well.
4. Those we like may be wrong; those we hate may be right. The only way to find out what is best, for whom, is to let the ideas and the theories, however disturbing, roll out in uninterrupted contest. The right to talk creates the duty to listen.
That was #4. There are ten of them (Duh. DECALOGUE. Hello!) Enjoy.
Oh. Extra credit if you know what "Look" magazine was. (No-not the forerunner to FHM)
