Well, that's awfully big of you. In my haste to link to the article I failed to write down my thoughts. I'll mull it over in my own time, it that's alright with you, and compose a reply later.
Well regarding your last sentence, not many people think about or consider aliens, alien being, UFOs or anything related on a daily basis. Many never consider them at all. I'd go so far as to say the vast majority of people walking the planet don't. So how does this fit with your last sentence? Not claiming it isn't so, but what is the conspiracy as you see it?

Ive suspected for years now the same thing - that aliens were a construct pushed by a grander conspiracy.
I used to believe in them wholeheartedly but the more I researched the more suspicious I got. Did you know that the Rockefellers had a UFO advocacy group that actively tried to convince scientists that aliens were fact? Without even a body as proof? Thats not science.
Also remember the comic The Watchmen. At the very end the villain Ozymandias genetically engineers fake aliens and kills millions of people with them. The next day the Soviets and Americans agree to a one world government solution. There's your answer.
Aliens serve as a distraction from real political conspiracies.
