I guess I can’t keep putting this off forever.
I’m sure by now you’ve all seen the news. I’m afraid I can’t claim to have known Jared as well as some of his other followers, and I have no desire to be the one writing his eulogy. Suffice to say, he was a good man and those who did know him personally have my sincerest condolences.
In setting up this blog Jared asked us to continue his work and finish what he could not. I’ve been spending the past day or so looking over his map and the various pieces of evidence he collected – the patterns are all there, but I fear there isn’t enough. As we’ve seen up to this point, anything short of Max Mason personally admitting to the accusations is going to be either covered up or just plain ignored. I’m usually skeptical of conspiracy theories myself (oh, the irony that I’m now writing a conspiracy blog!) so I know how hard it is to convince someone that a seemingly innocent person or company is in fact engineering the apocalypse (or something similarly outlandish). If we want to bring Mason down without resorting to Fury of Solace’s violent methods, we need to find something that cannot be disputed whatsoever.
As for what this would be… I have no idea. The best we can do is follow the leads Jared started, fill in the holes, and see what turns up. As I said before, this is a team effort: I welcome assistance from anyone who supported Jared in the past, as well as those of you only just joining us.
