I see above, and not unreasonably, apprehension about the MW concept as "bringing peace at the price of creating a sort of "electronic Land of the Lotus-Eaters", etc. It's not designed to work that way. From the book:
WHAT IT ISN'T
d. MW is not zombification. Besides not controlling minds, MW does not destroy them either. Sensationalist media exposés of “government-sponsored brain experimentation”, whether true or fanciful, have no connection whatever with MW, which is completely and without exception non-physically or -medically invasive. Indeed the entire MW campaign process requires that all participants be able and willing to function at their highest level and focus of intelligence, and after Phase 4 the future of the moral polis depends upon their self-determined, independent resolve to perpetuate this.
* Stabilization refers to the identification and achievement of the best possible resolution of the problem to temporarily remove the danger of PW: the áristos. [This process of stabilization to the áristos is the province of the MetaForce Branch, and is detailed in Chapter 4.]
** As developed by Plato in the Gorgias, kalokagathia identifies “moral virtue reflecting both the natural and the conventional”: the key to both individual and community perfection.

I think the occult and mystical aspects that permeate the UFO phenomenon is indicative of the simple fact that there is a reality to the occult and the mystical, and that our modern society has neglected this for so long that it has created a type of schism. The real issue is between the materialistic and atheist worldview that dominates our world, alongside antiquated religious ideologies such as Christianity. The UFO phenomenon represents a type of New Age worldview, if you can find a way to bridge the various sightings and experiences using a type of Jungian analysis. As mentioned throughout this thread, Carl Jung, John Alexander and Jacques Vallee, among others, have come the closest to explaining why spirituality seems entwined with this phenomenon. It seems to be the most challenging to atheists.
Also, although it does not matter in the slightest, what gave you the impression that Steven Greer is now gay? Did he come out on the Ellen show, dancing and celebrating? I know there were some highly suspicious allegations on Alfred Webre's website about his sexuality, but not many people have paid much attention to that article because it has some very serious credibility issues. I do get the impression myself that Greer could be bisexual and has maybe had some boyfriends on the side, but it really is of no consequence in the end.

The US soldier who was sentenced as Bradley Manning on Wednesday plans to undergo hormone therapy and has asked to be recognised as a woman.
In a statement on Thursday Manning said she would like to be known as Chelsea E Manning and be referred to by female pronouns.
"As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me," she wrote.
"I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition."
But Fort Leavenworth military prison in Kansas, where Manning is due to serve out her sentence, said on Thursday that it would not provide trans treatment beyond psychiatric support, in a move criticised as unconstitutional by activists and LGBT groups.
Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Wednesday for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents. She was found guilty of 20 counts, six of them under the Espionage Act, but her lawyers argued during the trial that Manning was acting out of a sense of duty to her country.

There`s something I`m not understanding here.
If the whole UFO phenomenon is just government misinformation designed to keep their secret projects secret, then how does Roswell, project bluebook etc, fit into that?
It is my understanding that project bluebook operated as a means to debunk ufo sightings,and we all know how the military retracted their original statement that a ufo was recovered at roswell.
so, if what you say is true that would mean that the government is creating misinformation about UFO`s, being real, and at the same time they were/are debunking their own misinformation. Why?
They doesn`t make any sense to me.
I don’t know - I’m making this up as I go!”
