Your take is very close to the mark in my opinion.
If people could just imagine for one second that it was to be revealed that Aliens do exist and HAVE made contact, and what impact it would have
worldwide. This revelation will completely change EVERYTHING we thought we knew. After the initial running to the leaders for help, the realisation of
how insignificant our 'leaders' are, will then render them and their power, useless.
It will cause many to question their religion. This will have a very negative impact on religion, and we can't have that now, can we ?
Our education system as we know it, will have a completely new outlook and approach. If Alien existence is revealed, then what happens to all those
stories of evolution that occupies most non religious schools ? Does the story change, is it thrown out all together, or does it help explain our
existence even better ?
Basically, it will change societies entire outlook and mentality. Too much effort has gone into building up religion and politics to just let it all
come crashing down by revealing one piece of information. The powers that be are doing a good enough job of controlling the masses through religion
and politics, without having to risk it all by revealing information that will, as you rightly said, upset the apple cart !
