In the US though, it's mostly very old men at this point (there's even a joke that the average age of a lodge member is "deceased"). I wonder if it's still growing in other countries though (especially the third world, where it might be seen as more of a novelty?) The fact that women can't be full members isn't helping its cause over here.hecma925 said:

It really depends on the community. When I was flirting with the idea of becoming a Freemason, the lodge I visited certainly had plenty of old men, but the under 50 crowd was a balanced mix of guys in their late 20s and 30s. Typically, the younger guys were in because a relative had been or was a Mason. That particular lodge made it a point that continuing such tradition in one's family was important or (someone like me) to begin a tradition to pass down to your sons.

2Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?

4Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?
5Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
6Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?
7Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?
8Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.
9Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?
10None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?
