What fascinating creatures humans are! Paranoia is almost always unattractive, but every so often one finds examples of it that are just so off-the-wall they become fascinating as an example of how very odd we can be. How’s this from a site I bumped into on researching Freemasonry:
THE NECK-TIE: – The Necktie is in fact another great example of how the population have been hoodwinked into accepting something that symbolises one thing to the ignorant masses – and something far more sinister to those who originally created it. A hallmark of the Occult – hiding the esoteric in plain sight, because the profane can’t see it. So whenever you ask a person what a neck-tie symbolises, more often than not they wont have a clue, nor will they care for that matter. This symbol of ‘being a gentleman – dressing smart – collar and tie’ and all that is a direct in-joke against those who wear it. Those who work daily jobs in the ‘system’ (whatever industry) are actually low level initiates of this Satanically inspired Brotherhood network of the Illuminati – whether they know it or not. As an informed Christian, this is why I personally refuse to wear a necktie – at least as general wardrobe.
I am amazed at the symbolism (all about us) of the wearing of the necktie. Now, where does that come from?…. It comes from the culture of British/Israelism. The necktie is derived from the cable-tow in masonry and you can see that all of the corporate world and much of religion wears it, including those who are in the highest seats in the synagogue. But, it is similar in symbolism to the apron of the LDS endowment and one ultimately needs to understand that it must be cast off…
