More than a few of the founding fathers were masons or woodmen ofthe world. Experts believe that up to 15 of the signers of theConstitution were masons.
The constitutional convention was where a large group of wealthy men(the founding fathers) who had their own interests to protect wrote the constitution. The men were mainly …planters, slaveholders, real estate and land speculators, lenders, investors, merchants, manufacturers, shippers and holders of public securities interests. Throughout the constitution you can tell these interests are protected. The founding fathers believed that the main role of government was to protect liberty and property. These men believed in a republican form of government that was ran by property holders. These men feared a mass democracy that may start a movement that would "reduce inequalities of wealth, intelligence, talent, or virtue." These men wanted to keep economic power in the hands of the already wealthy. These men did this by creating a strong central government, and by limiting the powers of the state. These men feared the responsiveness of a state legislature to the will of the masses who would clearly seek to make the country a more fair and balanced place. The constitution supports this theory when dissected and interpreted scorrectly.

In the times where skilled stonemasons were required to build cathedrals, there was a demand for people who had this training. These were during difficult times, and most peop…le could not read or write. Education was done by direct communication (not by reading - nobody knew how to read except the nobility and clergy) Stone masons realized they had to conduct themselves in a certain manner if they were to associate with the educated. They developed certain standard for being a gentleman. When stonemasonry was replaced with modern building techniques, the principles of this fraternal organization of gentlemen continued.
