Chasing Monsters

Another View From the Prism

This, frankly, is something of a teaser post. I’ve been in conversation with a good friend, D, who has long worked as therapist and counselor in San Francisco. He was not familiar with Mr. Wone’s murder, and recently reviewed this blog and the coverage linked herein.

We shall post his ideas soon. Safe to say that they came as a surprise to us all, mostly in that they were ideas we had not individually previously considered.

Again, his views are his own. We will share them because they demonstrate how this case seems to serve as a prism through which we see where we have been, what we know and who we are.
I don’t mean to get spacey, and in the near future hope to hew closer to the conflicts between established facts and claims. But frankly, what D offers is a hypothesis I never imagined. Thus we will share it: as it’s always helpful to me to consider what I haven’t considered.

One more note: I was reminded today of one of Neitzsche’s aphorisms, #146: “He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”

Let us all be on guard that we not gaze into this abyss for too long.

Look for D’s thoughts soon; and a new video we’re ready to post.

    Check out the new wikipedia article for Robert Eric Wone. Some fellow named “nursery rhymes” tried to get the article deleted on the basis that public articles defamed living persons such as Ward. Datalounge observers suspected that that person might be none other than Ward himself. So why does this blog post so little information that simply puts 2+2 together to show how the evidence points to how the housemates altered the evidence to cover up that one of them likely committed the murder, and why so little outrage that nobody is willing to put that simple theory into print??

    Fear of libel and defamation lawsuits, that is why. Journalists are always taught be be impartial and tell both sides of the story, even if the other person’s side of the story sounds ridiculous. Also, can you imagine the defense trying to ask for a change of venue due to too much negative pretrial publicity? Though, this is a blog accessible to people anywhere, not a local DC paper.
