Camus, The Stranger, and The Absurd
Date: 9/21/2019 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Literature
Presenter: Dennis Garza
Synopsis: In this classic novel introducing the unique absurdism of Albert Camus, Meursault refuses to be emotionally governed by the expectations of others. He does not show emotion at his mother’s funeral and seemed to have a detached indifference to a myriad the bizarre events unfolding in the novel. The courts and society in general conclude that Meursault is a “soulless monster” but Camus is expressing a belief that the main character is simply embodying the nature of the universe, absurd, and without meaning.

The Pursuit of Happiness: Is it a Choice?
Date: 10/19/2019 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Lin Gold
Synopsis: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are enshrined in the American consciousness as examples of our “unalienable rights”. We are understandably protective of our life and our liberty. “Freedom!” has long been the rallying cry in the US, and even our economic system is a “free-market” system. But what about happiness? Despite our place as the world’s most powerful country, the US is ranked 18th in the World Happiness Report by the UN. Why is that? Current scientific research and age-old spiritual teachings agree that material gain has limited impact on our happiness, yet the primary measure of our national well-being is the Gross National Product (GNP), which is only a measurement of our wealth. If the pursuit of happiness is as important as life and liberty, why don’t we measure the Gross National Happiness (GNH)? Why are our national policies (and our personal lives) so often guided by the measure of our wealth, rather than the measure of our well-being? Can we choose happiness instead? Freemasonry provides us with the tools to chip away illusion, reveal our true nature and build a healthy relationship to ourselves and our community. This lays the foundation for true happiness.

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.

"Un ser humano es parte de un todo, llamado por nosotros el universo, una parte limitada en el tiempo y el espacio.Sus pensamientos y sentimientos como algo separado del resto ... una especie de ilusión óptica de su conciencia. Esta ilusión es una Una especie de prisión para nosotros, que nos restringe a nuestros deseos personales y de afecto para unas pocas personas más cercanas a nosotros. Nuestra tarea debe ser Liberarnos de esta prisión ampliando nuestro círculo de compasión para abrazar a todas las criaturas vivas y toda la naturaleza en subelleza."
