Did the Freemasons rig the Titanic inquiry ?

New evidence suggests that the Freemasons were heavily involved in the investigation in to the disaster.
Surprisingly few people were ultimately held accountable for the sinking of the Titanic on April 15th 1912 - an event generally regarded as one of the most infamous maritime disasters in history.

Now new research in to a recently released secret archive of more than two million Freemasons has revealed that several of the officials involved in the investigation were members - as were several of those who might have been negatively impacted had they been held responsible.
Some of the most prominent Freemasons involved included:
  • The judge who oversaw the British Wreck Commissioner’s inquiry in to the sinking
  • Lord Mersey, who oversaw the investigation that exonerated the Board of Trade
  • The President of the Board of Trade Sydney Buxton
  • Naval architecture expert Prof John Harvard Biles who was an inquiry assessor
  • Edward Chaston - an engineering expert who was also one of the inquiry assessors
  • Lord Pirrie - chairman of the Belfast shipyard which originally built the Titanic
"The Titanic inquiry in Britain was branded a ‘whitewash’ because it exonerated most of those involved," said author and Titanic expert Nic Compton.

"Even Captain Smith was exonerated on the grounds that most other ships at that time also sped through the ice at full speed with no serious consequences."

"The only person both inquiries heaped scorn on was the captain of SS Californian, the ship that had stood by about eight miles off, its crew watching the emergency flares being fired by Titanic, without doing anything about it until it was too late."

What could have possibly been the motive for such a rigging? It's pretty clear what happened. The boat hit an iceberg. How exactly do you fudge that? There were a number of bad decisions and short cuts that went into making the Titanic, some either possibly caused the sinking or sped up the sinking, or increased the death toll.

Well, obviously, if they had enough life boats, they wouldn't have had so many deaths. I just don't know what anyone on shore could have done about them hitting an iceberg. They weren't steering the thing.

Investors and contractors sould have been an issue. Training, hiring of officers, a number of things came together that could be laid at the feet of White Star and tgeir investors.

As a retired member of an organization that is responsible for the investigation of such incidents, including the International Ice Patrol, I've read reports and studies and after-action-reviews of all the findings and evidence. From what I've read, all the seriously negligent parties were on the ship that night - and are still on it, today. It was bad design (but standard for the day), poor communications between damage control crews and the bridge, significantly worse damage than initially reported, and crap communication with the passengers after the allision. She was outfitted with life-bo... [More]

The question that might be asked is that if Freemasonry was so popular a century ago, with a large proportion of the Protestant male population from local tradesmen to the King as members, where would they get non Freemasons from? Prisoners?

Not having James Cameron's movie might have improved the world a bit. And if he hadn't made money from it maybe the rest of his career might have had a different trajectory...?
