Freemasonry seeks "to bring humankind from darkness to light and to form mankind into a great redemptive brotherhood." The endemic principle of Freemasonry is to achieve human perfectibility. The principles to achieve this genre of communal way of life and being 24/7/365 are truth, justice, balance, order, compassion, harmony and reciprocity.
In today's world, when a person lives by these same ancient Afrikan/Kemetic Masonic principles on a daily basis, such a person is called a "good citizen." These principles are directly linked to the education system. The ancient Kemetic education system had three grades/levels of students: (1) the mortals (2) the intelligences and (3) the sons of light (level of spiritual consciousness).
The most important objective of this system was the deification of man; the soul of man could become godlike in communication with the Gods. The ultimate aim of Kemetic education was for the Neophyte to become "one with God" or "become like God." Centuries later in the A.D. era, the world was told that man was made in the image and likeness of God as one of the founding tenets/pillars of Christianity's derived religious belief system.
The aim of education was achieved through the development of virtue - a person was seen as being spiritual in a finite human body. It is this specific, inherent spiritual component that is non-existent in Afrikan people's education system - hence, the omnipresence of Isfet. At this crucial juncture, it is vital to insert that the foundations of governance in the United States is based on and derived from, the original spiritual belief system of ancient Kemet/Egypt, especially the role of numbers 7 and 13 and the use of symbols.
By way of elucidation, the spiritual significance of number 7 is that it denotes completion, while 13 denotes transformation, resurrection, new life and rebirth. Now, the United States achieved its independence on 4 July 1776.
The choice of the month of July by the European founding fathers of the United States denotes that in July (7th month of the year), they completed their armed revolution/struggle for independence from Euro-colonial Britain. The choice of the 4th of July denotes that on that day, the United States was transformed from a colony of Britain to a sovereign independent nation-state; in addition, the 4th July falls within the summer solstice of ancient Kemet/Egypt which runs/lasts from 21 June - 4 July, a period of 13 days.
It is no accident, therefore, that the European founding fathers of the United States specifically choose this day to coincide with the spiritual belief system/blessing/protection/guidance of ancient Kemet. Moreover, the choice of 1776 denotes that 7 plus 6 also equals 13. So the European founding fathers of the United States purposely veiled/shrouded their new State in the swaddling clothes of ancient Kemet/Egypt. In addition, the 13th amendment of the U.S. constitution freed the slaves; this denotes that this amendment gave the slaves a "new life" as freed men; when the United States achieved its independence, there were only 13 colonies - accident? This denotes that there was a "rebirth" in this former colony of Britain.
Furthermore, the most powerful political weapon in the armoury of the United States, namely, the official seal of the government, has 13 layers - accident? The most powerful economic weapon in the armoury of the United States, the one dollar bill, bears a picture of the ancient Kemetic/Egyptian pyramid with 13 layers; there is also the eye of the Kemetic God Heru (called Horus by the Greeks and Jesus by Christians) as the all-seeing eye for protection -accident?
In terms of symbols, there is a stone monument in Washington, D.C. mistakenly called the "Washington monument." Now, this monument has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the European founding father of the United States, George Washington. This stone monument is directly connected and related to the ancient Kemetic/Egyptian spiritual phenomenon known as the "Osirian Drama."
In other words, in keeping with the ancient Kemetic/Egyptian spiritual belief system, the Washington monument denotes that even though President George Washington is physically dead, he is still spiritually alive to govern and oversee the nation ad infinitum - the lifetime of stone is infinite.
In terms of symbols, the colors red, white and blue of the US flag that symbolizes the American sign of global power and control are derived from the original ancient Kemetic/Egyptian Red Crown of the South, White Crown of the North and the Blue Crown of War that symbolized the Masonic system of governance, communal way of life and being as a result of the unification of Upper and Lower Kemet/Egypt by Pharaoh Narmer in 3200 B.C.
The ideas of "government of the people, by the people and for the people" also came out of this ancient system and not from the thought process of President Thomas Jefferson.
These original ideas/ideals came out of the system of governance and decision-making called Afrikan Communalism in ancient Kemet.
The Greeks who were studying at the Temple of Waset at that time in the B.C. era, renamed this system "Demos" from which is derived the modern A.D. concept Democracy.
