I never said it was going to come from the government. They may not have a choice in it.

Therein lies the problem you are looking at this from a human perspective and wondering whats in it for me? You assume that all life in the universe has the same outlook. I assure you that is highly unlikely. Not even all humans share that short sighted outlook. They have been helping mankind out for thousands of years, the proof is carved in stone, quite literally. I assure you we had much less to offer then, as well.
How exactly would ET's benefit from revealing their purpose, identity and existance to the human population? Do we have anything to offer them? I doubt it.
Actually the vatican has already issued a statement saying that it is ok to believe in extra terrestrials and that we should view them as our brothers and sisters from the stars.
The religious implications are immense, I am not even religious but I know it would cause a MASSIVE stir in that community, probably panic among other things.
That is a unfounded assumption based on nothing. What basis do you have to even make such a statement?
It would completely ruin the PTB's plans for domination, which in all likely hood is aligned with the needs and wants of any ET's that are visiting us currently.
I wish that were the case but I feel that we are running out of time and this disclosure may be coming out of necessity.
There is simply NO valid reason for any of this to take place in our lifetimes.

I think it'll be done slowly to be honest. For example, they might announce that they've found water on Mars, then microbes, then they'll find more life-bearing planets in our galaxy, and then they'll slowly begin to announce that we're being visited and engaged.
Who knows though. The public awareness is definitely increasing.

As much as I'd like to think so, the answer is probably no.
I don't forsee disclosure for a long, long time.
