First, it assumes there is something to disclose. If not, well there's your answer.
So, since that is a rather moot point, let's assume (as I do) that there IS something to disclose. That something being that aliens are visiting
Earth, and our government/s are aware of the fact.
This then implies collusion. The aliens want to keep it secret (otherwise THEY would have made their own disclosure) and the government wants to keep
it secret (same thing). It follows there is a REASON for the secrecy.
So, in order for disclosure to happen, the reason for the secrecy must be outweighed by the benefit of revealing them to the public (for at least one
of the two parties). Presumably, this hasn't happened yet. Something would need to CHANGE to then force disclosure by one of the two (aliens or
A whistleblower alone cannot do it. Any such person can easily be discredited, even with physical evidence (confiscated in the interest of national
security, claiming it as something else, etc.). The establishment of the ridicule factor remains to be the best defense the secret has.
So, what is the alien agenda? After all, this is the sticking point. Many can make sense, but the most common ones don't. I doubt they are here to
enslave us (could have done it more easily before now). I doubt they are here to study us (plenty of time since, for that). They don't need resources
(can travel the stars, an endless supply of ANYTHING). They don't want to help us (or they would have by now).
So, where does that leave us?
My best guess is that we discovered them before we were supposed to. I think they were monitoring us, there was a mishap, and we recovered one of
their craft (1947). So, they are kind of stuck. But, they may have some kind of prime directive keeping them from interfering. (or perhaps they feel
we are dangerous enough on our own, let alone with their tech). In any case, the government would have wanted something to keep quiet, if even to not
let the public know that a technologically superior force was out there.
Most don't see how this would be bad (having access to new tech), but think about it....really think about it. A simple common item on their planet
could completely kill an entire industry if it made it obsolete! Imagine an energy cube, for example, that could power anything for a human lifetime.
Energy industry? Gone. Dependent industries? Gone., etc. All overnight. And that's just ONE invention.
So, my assumption is that we are on a kind of galactic "probation". Could even explain the abrupt halt to our major manned space efforts. Who knows?
