If ETs are coming here, then our governments are dealing with a higher power than themselves. They cannot hope to keep it completely hidden if the ET
power does not wish their presence to remain a secret. Something so technologically advanced as a space-faring race of creatures could likely do
whatever they wanted whenever they wanted to a more primitive civilization. Our governments can't keep it a total secret, so they keep it an open
secret. The public sees and reports these paranormal incidents all the time, but through denial, threats, and evidence confiscation, the subject of
UFOs/ETs can remain at a comfortable distance so as not to completely alter the current status quo of the earth.
Also, the United States is an alleged capitalist democratic republic where the people supposedly elect their rulers and enjoy more privelages than
some other countries where laws are far stricter. In a culture such as this, a government cannot hope to keep such a secret absolutely hidden as the
election process brings far too many people into and out of the governing body to control information flow. Capitalist media outlets, which overtly
has no government restrictions on it, also pose a problem to keeping such a secret a secret. And because the United States is the way it is, that is
why we know something about the reality of UFOs/ETs, but not enough to dispell the official secrecy that surrounds it.
UFO/ET reports are a good method of seeing what countries keep the subject more overtly hidden from their populace. The lower amount of reports, the
more likely the media in that country isn't as free as in others.
