    Step away from the internet, and the books, and find a Lodge. Speak to Freemasons, learn from them.

    To be honest, I can't entirely understand what you are asking. Whatever it is, keying off your use of the word "global," the answer is no. Freemasonry has no global goal because there is no central global authority, despite what the tin foil hat crowd will have you think.

    Ask 10 Master Masons that, get 15 distinct and contradictory reponses. Does that answer your question?

    I am not able to answer what all MMs think about anything. There a several million worldwide, so that means you probably have about as many opinions on any given subject. I think it is safe to say we all have a positive outlook for the future of the world, and the vast majority of us are willing to do our part to make the world a better place. I feel certain that all Masons, as well as non Masons, understand that we are going to die. All living things die at some point. I am unaware of any doctrine about a cataclysmic event that will take us all out at once. Freemasonry doesn't work that way.

    Freemasonry is a fraternal organization dedicated to making good men, as well as our communities, better. There is no global cabal of Masons running anything. Heck, most of us don't even run our own households. We answer to our wives!

    As mentioned, we're a group of individuals, so our responses will all differ.
    For myself, I know that I can truly change just one man, and I can only hope that it will help in changing the world.

    That is a personal opinion, we as an institution would not have an accounting of such things.

    There is absolutely no way to find out the answer to such a question. Being master masons does not mean that we have a "hive mind" approach to life,love and the universe, as mentioned before eaxgh of us is an individual.

    There are soem questions that you could get an answer to for example: Do all all Freemasons believe that there is a Creator responsible for the Universe? Now here's a question which can be answered as we must all believ in this precept.

    That, however, is about the only question that can be asked and answered of all Master Masons.

    I read both of these when starting out in the degrees and learned a lot.
