Anyone, Mr. Rimmer,

Respect and adherence for and to the truth should be everyone's
guiding light. But, sir, one thing is worse than fiction and
that is suppression of the truth by those entrusted by the
public with their affairs and sworn by oath to uphold their
interest. When, in the course of an event, that goes askew,
expect the worst to follow, especially when this curtain of
imposed secrecy is drawn around everything deemed in the least
threatening to those that have built an industry around
filtering disclosure.

The distinctions become thus not so clearly set and truth-
seeking not so easily obtained. Without conjecture - what the
debunkers abhor - and without erecting some method by which to
subject known findings to analysis based on probability, we are
at the mercy of tyranny, tyranny that is driven by its own
insane lust for power. Even at the expense of ruination for all.
