The biggest single issue for me, as what was pointed out in the original post, is religion.
The power in many countries of the world lays with the church. Whatever faith you belong to.
Even in the USA, where the man at the top was hell bent (crickey, bad pun) on giving his version of creationism to school kids, why would you destroy the very institution that goes a long way to keeping you at the top?
What about countries in the Middle East, South East Asia, right the way down to small Pacific Island nations like Tonga, where the church plays a massive part in the day-to-day life of most people.
Disclosure won't happen until the day when most people on this planet are athiest, or willing to happen an open mind. But, ironically, most churches reward you for not opening your mind.
Or, something really really meaty gets posted on YouTube - which no-one can deny.
On a side note, I really dislike that term, 'open your mind', it's just so... Manchester 1989, stuck in a nightclub at 5am thinking 'how... am... I...gonna...get...home'.
