Avoiding the shock of disclosure, both individually and at a societal level, is purely a function of having an accurate cosmic perspective. The primary falseness inhibiting people's ability to form such a perspective, in order of importance, is as follows:
1) Identifying man as his body.
-If we cannot accurately identify what we are, we cannot truthfully answer subsequent questions of who, why, how, and where.
2) Identifying extra-extraterrestrial entities as their bodies.
-By misidentifying the extra-terrestrials we are misunderstanding key differences, and lack of differences.
3) Misunderstanding the true history of this planet.
-Without recognizing Earth's place in this galaxy and in the vast physical universe it cannot be accurately determined what kind of game we are involved in.
Incidentally, these are all steps required to advance as a species in this century and beyond, beginning with developing a much higher level of ethics.
I hope you all find this beneficial and will take the time to understand all its implications even if its at variance with your own preconceptions.

I personally do not subscribe to the complete meltdown of society if disclosure were to take place. This prediction comes from a report written in the 60s by the Brookings Institute. That was over 40 years ago. The same timeframe when people were paranoid of their neighbor or friends being communist. We’re way past that now. So I wonder what a report written today would suggest? I think most of the world’s population today already believes.
As far as being afraid goes, I'm far better able to mentally brace myself for a road accident if I'm forewarned of it. The shock of running into a grisly scene unexpectedly is far more likely to upset me. Forewarned is forearmed.
