The chances of there being a mysterious secret cabal of folks that are pulling the string on this level is not only preposterous to imagine, it is an insult to the average person's intelligence.
I'm an old fart, and I remember several times during my childhood education where UFO's and Aliens were used in the lesson plan. Heck, in junior high they played ET in the gymnasium for everyone before summer break. No big deal, and there was no "hidden agenda" or any other absurd thing going on.
