We are not alone and there is a global conspiracy to cover this issue and silence people who get too close...
"For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on
infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies
by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that
combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its
mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed"
"There exists in our nation today a powerful and dangerous secret cult -- the cult of intelligence. Its holy men are the clandestine professionals of
the Central Intelligence Agency. Its patrons and protectors are the highest officials of the federal government. Its membership, extending far beyond
governmental circles, reaches into the power centers of industry, commerce, finance, and labor. Its friends are many in the areas of important public
influence -- the academic world and the communications media. The cult of intelligence is a secret fraternity of the American political aristocracy.
The purpose of the cult is to further the foreign policies of the U.S. government by covert and usually illegal means, while at the same time
containing the spread of its avowed enemy, communism. Traditionally, the cult's hope has been to foster a world order in which America would reign
supreme, the unchallenged international leader. Today, however, that dream stands tarnished by time and frequent failures. Thus, the cult's objectives
are now less grandiose, but no less disturbing. It seeks largely to advance America's self-appointed role as the dominant arbiter of social, economic,
and political change in the awakening regions of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. And its worldwide war against communism has to some extent been
reduced to a covert struggle to maintain a self-serving stability in the Third World, using whatever clandestine methods are available" (Marchetti &
"This cult is patronized and protected by the highest level government officials in the world. It's membership is composed of those in the power
centers of government, industry, commerce, finance, and labor. It manipulates individuals in areas of important public influence - including the
academic world and the mass media. The Secret Cult is a global fraternity of a political aristocracy whose purpose is to further the political
policies of persons or agencies unknown. It acts covertly and illegally" (Marchetti & Marks, 1974).
"Socially as well as professionally they cliqued together, forming a sealed fraternity. They ate together at their own special favorite restaurants;
they partied almost only among themselves; their families drifted to each other, so their defenses did not always have to be up. In this way they
increasingly separated themselves from the ordinary world and developed a rather skewed view of that world. Their own dedicated double life became the
proper norm, and they looked down on the life of the rest of the citizenry. And out of this grew what was later named -- and condemned -- as the
"cult" of intelligence, an inbred, distorted, elitist view of intelligence that held it to be above the normal processes of society, with its own
rationale and justification, beyond the restraints of the Constitution, which applied to everything and everyone else" (Marchetti & Marks, 1974).
