Complaint: This particularly building and the reading room also seems to contain or is designed with a lot of freemasonry symbolism. At the Architect of the Capitol they will claim that the John Adams Building is an art-deco design (www.aoc.gov/capitol-buildings/john-adams-building). If you study the details, such as the doors, the statuary such as the owl by the door, the Egyptian god type memes, it is eerily similar to the House of the Temple (Scottish Freemason 1733 16th Str NW scottishrite.org/). The library, moldings, window diamond grid, columns alabaster and marble, and the vaulted enclosure of the Adams reading room especially is evocative of the Freemason Library. There are plenty of photos at Yelp and TripAdvisor. The architects for the capitol shared their abilities and talents in church design but this may have also been intentional, to transmit the sense of anything done for the public has its cult craft counterpart. The chilly and unfriendly library staff is to convey that they are in service not to the public per se but to the empire and its elected representatives, since even if we elected them they could not stay in office were it not that they bow to their agenda. Suffice it to say, it is altogether possible that at least one or two of the librarians, especially the one who looks like an older Ellen Brown can be in the order of the evening star. Per Bilderberg(dot)org freemason mission is to make darkness seem visible while drawing more into darkness. That said the atmosphere is still generally conducive to conducting quality research and writing, although not on a regular basis. Rating 4/5.
