I struggle to understand why we allow ourselves to remain so willfully blind in some ways. We who read the Book of Mormon know that secret combinations exist. We can see through history that these secret combinations can often ascend to the highest levels of government. We know that they have as their goal the destruction of our personal liberties and the binding of us down into sin.
And yet, knowing this, we turn a blind eye to it happening right in front of us. We seem to believe that there is no way that it could happen in modern society. We think that the head of our particular political faction or government has our interests in mind. Historically, we know that not to be often true. Doctrinally, we also know that not to be often true. So why are we so willing to turn a blind eye?
