The recently posted thread about SecureTeam’s channel being “demonetized” and the subsequent commentary reminded me of a thought I had a bit ago...

Why is it that when someone manages to monetize the UAP/UFO/ET phenomenon, members of the community become irate and consider it blasphemous?

It doesn’t make sense to me.

I say this because I wondered how much farther along we’d be in UFO/UAP/ET research and disclosure if the subject was a multi-billion dollar a year industry in the private sector?

Potentially a lot farther along. More people could dedicate time to the research, the message could get out to more people and draw more people in. Investments in tech for the study of these phenomenon would increase materially. It would no longer be a “hobby” but a career. That’s a lot more time analyzing, researching and displaying the information collected. The remaining societal “stigma” around the subject would likely decrease as well.

Said another way, if there’s no money in something then there’s little investment and less participation. Why? Because it’s a hobby/side interest as people need to pay the bills and have a “real” job.

Just because there’s a profit motive doesn’t mean it’s illegitimate. Most of the things you engage with, keep you alive and fed were created out of a profit motive. So why hate on people who do that with the UAP/UFO/ET subject?

I haven’t figured out how to monetize it in the way I’m thinking about it. But if and when someone does I’ll be on board!

Because it doesn't work that way. If you want to make money from something you want it to keep on going. The goal of ufology is supposed to be disclosure.
It's like the health industry those things should not be done for profit. But to achieve a goal.

According to google, everything that is not proved by science or being researched by certified scientists are fake news.

Back in the days, google would not have monetized the round earth concept for a long time

Yeah, so make fake videos and add ludicrous sensationalist headlines so people, who probably have no idea behind the true nature of why ufology existed in the first place, can get cheap thrills while still maintaining the whole subject has no substance.

Channels like this do not help anything, apart from lining the pocket of a charlatan that is

Tyler was just presenting interesting stories around the world to the table..

Couple of days later they would be presented here on ATS.. people would not mention secureteam of cause, because they are to yellow to stand by their own interest, and afraid to be buhuu by the collective angry trolls.

And ohh.. he is up and running again..

The only purpose of that channel is profit, there is no science or debate.

Of course, if only the people who actually watch that rubbish weren't too lazy to read or watch lectures on the subject, there would be no need for channels like that in the first place.

My problem isn't the profit, it's how it's being done that bothers me

No closer than we are now,

the only difference would be those making money would be be richer.

as Peeple posted in their post,

it should be about disclosure, that should be the goal

it is to the average person interested in the subject, however

not to those invested in ufology.

You-tubers require a gullible audience to fork out money or subscribe and they also require the mystery that surrounds the subject to keep their viewers clicking their videos.

Others such as speakers and book writers require the same

the industries that have some investment in ufology require the mystery to be able to hide behind if need be.

The point of my post isn’t to debate Tyler’s channel.

That said - good on him for garnering the interest of hundreds of thousands of people and getting them thinking about the subject.

Awareness is very valuable. And maybe that awareness leads people to start the trip down the rabbit hole.

Awareness of what exactly? More tabloid style stories which do absolutely nothing for the subject.

No, it's entertainment to them, it does not get people interested in the subject beyond that

I read this as a tired argument... “the rich get richer”.

Innovation is fostered by profit and always has been. Without a reward system (money) and a market place (buyers and competition) - innovation happens much more slowly.

A person can dislike that but it doesn’t change how the world works.

Then again, I’m a free market capitalist by nature so we may see this differently.

the channel wasn't down or censored or banned or removed to be up and running again

if you mean by making money again when you say up and running then yes,

the channel is making money again.

what does this channel do to further Ufology to any sort of disclosure?

OP makes mention of an industry with a lot money would get us further,

How does this channel that makes money further Ufology towards disclosure?

What difference would it make if the channel didn't make money?

None of the money made is put into investigating anything to lead to any answers.

If a YouTube channel was doing that then it would be something to support.

Most YouTube UFO channels are designed to feed peoples interests and if they are monetized use tactics to get as many clicks as possible.

Plenty of ways to monetize this subject after disclosure.

Beyond that, if you were the person who brought about disclosure - or was wifey recognized as the person who accomplished disclosure - you could make a fortune - and dovetail that into the post-disclosure world and whatever new opportunities came about.

Can’t think in terms of finish lines - need to think in terms of evolution and expansion.

There is no argument in my post.


The only innovation you-tubers are getting is how to get more clicks, not to help Ufology towards disclosure of the claims made for over half a century about alien visiting earth and/or crashed ET craft.

If certain you-tube channels that post UFO videos and are monetized and with the profits earned actually put that to use to investigate to get us further then it would be something to support.

Industries/sectors such as military, aviation and energy are all invested in Ufology in one way or another.

Nothing to gain by disclosure, a lot to gain if kept in the dark and keep the subject as mysterious as possible.

The most important thing is to realize that-

There are no governments. They are a smoke screen, in reality a unity exists where it matters.

Money does not exist. In the sense when someone of importance is doing something, money is ours, not theirs.

When speaking about (truly) advanced research, it is not funded with money, money is for buying a cheeseburger.

I hope one day I can monetize from my YT channel. Still too early but working hard and spending many hours in research just to provide interesting videos.

I see a lot of junk videos with many "likes" and subscriptions. I rather grow slowly but sure I won't become a "likes/subscriptions" whore.

I don't use twitter of facebook neither. The only sort of social media I use to let people know about my videos is ATS.

no person could,

if someone had information that could convince or disclose something alien I doubt they would be able get it out.

Only those in control such as government or corporations that hold a lot of sway with governing bodies could disclose.

There is more to be made by keeping the population in the dark.

Because monetization is an incentive to falsify , something SecureTeam are guilty of.

That's what I was trying to say in my previous post.

Maybe. But the free market sorts that out.

Just like it does in every other industry...
