Money and Mutualism

(p.200) Chapter 6 Money and Mutualism
Faith, Fraternity and Fighting
Liverpool University Press

This chapter explains the various financial dimensions of Orangeism, and also investigates both the friendly society dimension and the day-to-day financing of lodges. Money and mutualism presented the two differing functions of financial Orangeism. The first dealt with the vital lubrication of the lodge and was founded upon the various sorts of membership dues and subscriptions they paid; the other was the collective self-help element and was connoted upon the essential benevolence of Orangemen. Money is important to Orangemen. Orangeism attempted to validate the natural response of working-class, ethnic communities to problems any of their members might experience. The lodgemen liked to turn trust upon the ‘hands-into-pockets’ charity of individuals into structured financial organisation with bank accounts or a savings bond paying real and reliable returns according to steadfast rules and watertight regulations.
