When your world view is based on myths you made up or buy off on, it's going to be difficult for your favorite villain to live up to your
expectations. That's not to say you can't have a big effect on the world. After all, look at Christianity. It was originally a 'go to the
mountaintop, Jesus is coming again WITHIN YOUR LIFETIME' kind of cult. Paul preached an imminent second coming. It's been 2,000 years and still no
Jesus, yet you can't say the religion has had no effect. In other words, Christianity was originally a Cargo Cult.
Just like Disclosure.
It has all the same characteristics. The government is going to 'Disclose' Real Soon Now! It's imminent! within our lifetimes! Everything is
falling apart! TPTB can't hold onto the Secret any longer! If the government won't Disclose, then, then, then, ET will FORCE their hand!
The Big Problem here is that we've allowed the whole issue to turn religious. When that happens, anything goes. A light in the sky becomes
'evidence.' People start experiencing ET personally. (The same exact thing happened in early Christianity. People reported seeing Jesus so much
that the early church had to get a handle on it and suppress it.) And once you have a religion you have people selling indulgences. So there's Dr.
Reed and his alien in a refrigerator, the Billy Meier cult, which some otherwise very intelligent people have signed off on. You have a whole host of
contactees, abductees, etc. to the point that you really can't tell the difference between what is real and what is not. After all, that guy SOUNDS
like he is telling the truth!
So then the arguing begins. One guy says, "He looked up and to the right when he was talking. That's a general indication that he is lying." "No,
that means he is remembering." "It's arrogant to believe we are the only life in the Universe!" said with CONVICTION! and then, (wait for it)
"therefore THEY are HERE NOW!"
There is no academic discipline to this. There is no rigorous course of study. The issue is not treated in a scientific manner. Reasoned discourse is
often trumped by absurdity and psychological instability of people drawn to the field. There is no base level of knowledge to build upon. Anyone can
pretend to be an expert and those generally considered experts are often as loony and undisciplined as any other believers. It's a real mess out
If there really are People Who Know, they must observe all this.The best solution I can come up with is to let the believers fight each other. They
are doing a good job of confusing reality with fantasy. They have no idea what is really happening. Many of them believe obvious hoaxes and fakes.
They are completely disorganized. And they are their own worst enemies.
In other words, for the People Who Know, it's the best of all possible worlds!
