This the openiong statement of theis episode and the basis behind many conspiracy theories about 'aliens' but in reality this is just not true. Its
a premise presented by people who want to feed you lies about alien visitation.
Many studies and polls have been done over the years about this subject and for the most part they all say that sociaty would be fine. One 3rd of the
population belive in visiting aliens anyway and a larger percentage belive theres life out there somewhere in the universe. NASA and other agencies
spend billions to look for life, every thime they even find the smallest hint of a possibility of life its all over the front pages of the news papers
and makes headlines on the news.
So there would be no collapse and thus no need for a conpiracy of silence. So when yuou hear someone say "if we were to know the truth society as we
know it would collapse" they are either naive or about to spin you a whole bunch of BS about cover ups and MIB type scenarios.

So, from reading this and other posts in this thread by you... You believe that the whole idea that our civilization cannot handle aliens is just a
trick used to fool people into believing that the government is covering up info about UFOs and or aliens, which they are not?
So, the following scenario makes sense to you...
Tom: "Yeah man, the government is covering up the existence of aliens."
Bob: "How do you know?"
Tom: "Well just think, if they told us the truth, civilization would collapse."
Bob: "Zomg you're right!!! I am now another UFO coverup believer thanks to your preferred method of explaining it. Yep, that covers everything!"
I mean, really?
Did you consider that some people believe this because of what happened after the airing of War of the Worlds on the radio? There was mass calamity
that day for your information! Oh no, those people are just trying to trick you into a coverup! Right?
Maybe some people say it because they really believe it.
And by the way, wake up and smell the ectoplasm, there really IS a coverup... I think. (unlike you who seems to know without a doubt that there
is not. By the way how long did it tale you to get the security clearance to oversee every governmental department in real time?) How many documents
have been released that were kept under wraps for decades, while there was a COVERUP regarding that certain information. Now we know that there were
tons of sightings reported.
I suppose that they figured we weren't ready to know how many other people were actually having sightings. Now we already knownthere are tons
of sightings year after year thanks to the internet. So some govenments have since released tons of reports from long ago that you can read through.
In the future, they will probably release more, but it will be stuff we mostly already know by then. They tell us stuff when they think we are ready.
Look at the recent Falklands War revelations. There's all kinds of coverups going on.
Oh and there is still PLENTY of reason for a conspiracy of silence even if you don't believe UFO knowledge will collapse society!!! What's the
matter with you?? I could think of a zillion and one reasons so I'm not even goiossing to bother naming a few possible ones, since I don't want to
imply that they are the most likely out of the multitude of possibilities...
