They probably don't travel light years "just to abduct" people. I often hear people make comments about certain sightings like the O'Hare incident for example: "Yea, like Aliens are going to travel trillions of miles to just hover above an airport real quick." Why do people assume that Aliens must immediately leave once they have done something? Isn't it safe to assume that they probably have their own bases here on Earth in the oceans and underground? They probably travel all that distance to stay here for many years for research or whatever else you want to guess that it is they are doing here.
Anyways, I respectfully disagree with your "they are from within" theory. And I also think we already have a Cognitive Liberation Movement, it is called UFOlogy. As far as I am concerned, most UFOlogists try to study reality.
Also, exactly how many people on Earth do you think truly believe that something crazy is going to happen in 2012? Probably not very many when you look at the entire population. If people want to believe "doom" is coming in 2012 then so what? Let them believe it. And once 2012 passes and nothing happens, they will obviously feel stupid...
