Many situations fraught with injustice take a turn for the better due to reactions, where those injured and those in sympathy are impelled to action where they would otherwise be passive. Such a situation occurred during the era of inquisitions and the political marriage of church and state in Europe centuries ago. Integrity is one of the first casualties when those living by lies come into power, and thus the Knights Templar came under attack. As with most casualties of the inquisitions, they were blameless and set up with all manner of accusations that were totally unfounded. Those offended by this injustice live on today, by proxy, as an organization that has lost all semblance to the original group, becoming, as most groups do over time, simply a group fraught with procedures and rules and hierarchies to be honored.
