Hello Remain Obsolete, and welcome to the loony bin!
I have thought about just this topic on more than a few occassions. Although there really is an infinite combination of "ifs" and "buts", what I
came about with (in a nutshell) is this: If the government, Cabal, whoever, was developing say new technology for the express purpose of defending the
US population from external threats, and informing the puplic of the existence of this technology or its use would cause unnecessary public
disruption, I wouldnt necessarily have a problem with it being kept secret.
Indeed, I'll even go a bit further and say that the gov might even have a right to keep the public in the dark about potential threats that are not
publicly known, especially if there isnt anything the public can do about it. Example, if an orbital war was being waged against potential alien
However, I DO have problems with keeping everything a secret from the public when the powers that be decide to completely disregard the constitution
and personal freedoms. For example, the illegal, unconstitutional land grab performed by the USAF to obtain Freedom Ridge and prevent civilians from
watching things at Area 51. They obtained 94000 acres of property illegally, as per federal law, any land acquisition over 50000 acres requires
congressional approval. This never happened.
Also, if I can refer you to the seismic thread
There is a good deal of evidence that this very technology is NOT being used against external threats, but AGAINST the American public.
