I think the few times 'alien tech' has fallen into humans hands they have given it back.
If they want to maintain the illusion of Authority, they have to.
Remembering the people at the top of the worlds gubments are generally self centered and greedy and could care less about the 'bigger picture', as long they maintain their hold on power.
If aleens are content to sit on the side lines so to speak then the worlds 'Super' powers are content to ignore them.

The question begs IF any group on Earth had access to Alien technology, WOULD they disclose that.....how might that change the landscape

My timeline may be incorrect, but IIRC altho we did testing of nuclear weapons it wasn't till AFTER we dropped the bomb on Japan that we had instances of "UFO" interference at our missile sites.

I am under the impression that aliens haven't visited us. If superior tech is being hidden, It's probably from an older human civilization.
Other than that, I can get on board.
Public relations are and will always be in the crapper. Evil people have a much easier rise to power. I don't think the tech is what would separate people and cause turmoil. I think people just do that regardless. We could be back in the stoneage and we'd have the same problems.
