I’m a new user here, so this may or may not have been openly discussed before. I see that there is currently a couple of active threads talking
about disclosure, but I feel that this belongs seperate. For the record, I consider myself a skeptical believer. I do believe there’s something
going on that the government isn’t telling us in regards to extraterrestrials, whether they are ET’s or as some have proposed, some species from
here on Earth that we have openly discovered yet. I believe Gaz has made an exceedingly great case on Roswell here in the past few weeks, and that in
particular has caused me to start this thread. Fair warning: this may get somewhat lengthy.
My question, as stated in the subject line, is why no disclosure? Why haven’t people taken some sort of major step to get everything out into the
open? I don’t feel as it is going too far to say that
1) There is something massive going on behind the scenes that involves some unpublicized species and/or extremely advanced technology that would
put Intel and Texas Instruments to shame.
2) Public acknowledgement of point 1 would have the most profound effect on our society.
I would also like to extend the opinion that, for better or worse, disclosure of whatever might be going on behind the scenes is something that human
civilization needs to go through. Would improve our quality of life immediately or would it cause mass hysteria and panic? I can’t say, and I
truly don’t think anyone could until it actually happened. This is something the likes of which have never happened before—say what you will
about Europeans coming to the Americas, I don’t think that is big enough to justify a direct correlation. I do know that it would undermine many,
many of our beliefs as a society, but that might not be a bad thing. Without going too far on a sociological tangent, that may be exactly what we
would need to improve our treatment of each other on this planet. That’s not a digression I wish to get into at this point though.
I see two major, generalized truths to back up any movement for disclosure. One, there is a ton of documented cases, photographs, video tapes, and
other physical evidence. Even disregarding the ones that have been completely debunked, and even those that are questionable to even the staunchest
believer, there still remains enough data to sink a small fleet.
Second, given the number of admitted believers, witnesses, and researchers, one would think that there would be enough of a backing to get this
information into the mass media somehow. I mean serious attention—not an 11 pm to 4 am talkshow on AM radio, not a special report that pokes fun at
the idea, and not one of the countless collection of witnesses and debunkers that generally ends with the phrase “Is there anything out there? Who
So what’s holding us back? What’s keeping the believers from getting together and saying “We’re madder than hell and we’re not gonna take
it anymore”? From what I’ve observed, there’s a small handful of reasons.
First, lack of whole organization. There’s so many “cliques” in the realm of belief that it’s hard to congregate on any one topic. There’s
those who stand by the fact that these reports are completely spiritual. Warnings from God, the angels, demons, whatever. There’s people who say
that everything that’s going on is from our kind X number of years into the future. There’s people who say that it’s all from this one race who
is starting a galactic war with this race. Would it be too much to ask for us all to just agree that there is something going on that is being held
back from us, regardless of what it is? In working with something like that, I feel that we might be able to stick together long enough to get some
answers. I know that there are several organizations, such as MUFON and the Disclosure project, that are dedicated to researching and exposing this
material, but I haven’t seen much along the lines of a dedicated front.
Second, fear of sounding crazy. No one wants to think they’re losing it. We don’t want to lose the respect of the other people in our
community—bosses, friends, family, etc. And we’ve been told since the introduction of mass media that reports of this nature are strictly for
fancy and best left to science fiction stories. Quite frankly I’m in league with the conspiracy theorists on this one: I feel the government has
been filling our heads with this so we don’t go out and start trying to pull the curtain up on everything. One person believes something different,
they’re crazy. 10 people and it’s a cult. But 100’s and 1000’s and people start to notice a little more. Eventually the ball starts rolling
along and with enough people backing it up it starts to seem less and less crazy to everyone else.
Third, fear of physical harm. There’s many reports of people being threatened by the government, and many reports of people going missing or having
“accidents.” I think that this is probably the best way the government can keep this thing under wraps, playing on this fear. Think back to
9/11. The plane that crashed over Pennsylvania. I know there’s all sorts of conspiracy theories on that one, but for this discussion let’s drop
those for right now and take the publicized story on that—even if it is just a story, it’s worth noting. There were five armed men who took
control of the plane. There were 45 people on board (if I remember correctly). What would you do now, after 9/11, seeing 5 guys armed with box
cutters or other weapons try to take over the plane you were on? Most likely you’d rush them and try and stop them. Yeah, they might take one or
two people out, but it’s better than taking the whole plane down. Granted, the US government has a little more than a box cutter, and there’s
more than just five of them. But at the same time, how could they take out an extremely large number of people without anyone noticing? What if 100K
people filed their reports with CNN or ABC or something like that, all at once, just flooded them with emails, letters, phone calls, etc., asking for
a serious report into everything and giving them sources to look into like ATS or the Disclosure Project? Could the government take out all 100K
without that giving more credence to the story?
I’d really like some input here on something that could be done. I think 50+ years is far too long to be kept in the dark, and I think it’s time
that we the people, not just of the US but of the world, start to do something about it.
