I mean the news in the UK some time ago went absolutely nuts when they found out that we were being watched on cctv 300 times a day. People went crazy when they found this out because they thought it was invading their personal space. Now imagine if we were visited by aliens in "Crafts" large OR small I guess a lot of people would say "What right do they have coming here and invading our space/earth?"
Once disclosure is made the stories of abductions become valid.
The governments have few options on the issue. They can say that yes, they knew about the abductions and allowed them, or they can say they knew about the abductions and were powerless to stop them.
Alien beings who mastered intersteller space travel spend enormous amounts of money in research and developement, training and construction. In order to justify such costs, their returns must be even more subtantial.
...Once they realize that the adult world is in Chaos they will follow suit.

I don't mean us (ATS or UFO folk) specifically, but I mean the population in general.... Can WE handle it? I'm not so sure...
1. That we are seemingly powerless to stop others from invading our airspace at will.
2. That we are seemingly powerless to stop others from abducting citizens at will.
3. That we are NOT the brightest crayon in the box.
4. That others may think of humans as "lesser beings".
5. That our ideas of religion, man's place in the universe, etc. are a complete farce...
6. That our society and economies could survive the sudden introduction of a vastly superior technological society...
Again, I'm not so sure.
This goes WAY beyond the childish idea of "panic". It's more about the psychological, sociological, and economic impact of the revelation of the presence of alien beings.
Assuming the government is hiding the alien issue (and I do to a large degree), I'd have to hope that there's a plan for a quicker conditioning of the public though.... After all, if the aliens decide they don't want to be secretive anymore...they'd blow the whole deal...no?
"Eh watch for a bit until I realize that it doesn't pay the bills, then I'd flip it off."

That's what many say now because the reality is not there for them. I think huddle in the basement with a shotgun is more realistic.
Breakdown of society
That's it folks! I really get the impression that people don't want to accept this but IMO it is the likely outcome.
I've said it in as many ways as I can.
