extremists and lead to a new and improved round of car-bombings, hijackings, etc.
To be quite honest, if this is the reason that the world's governments have covered-up contact with aliens, it might not be a bad idea, as I don't
think a lot of people are really ready to deal with that in their minds.
And no, you can't go by the people on this site as a good cross-reference of society for predicting how well it would or wouldn't work out.
