Granted, this is just personal opinion, but having spent this weekend unwilling brought into the argument, I have to get this off my chest… when attempting to develop a program for Masonic education, always aim for Brothers to become etically informed emicists.
That said, the emicist can be educated, corrected if you will. The eticist is forever disbarred by their so-called objectivism. To put it in common parlance, an emic will evolve when placed in Rappacini’s Garden, the eticist will die and/or kill Rappacini’s Daughter thinking his objectivism has empowered him with knowledge to force a “beneficial” change into the Garden.
Rant complete. Thanks for listening.
