The problem is simple human nature. Most of us live in the moment, and are easily manipulated to work and consume to their own detriment. A few are
conditioned to believe in the immanence of the moment, and continuously anticipate a future time all will be called to account for their actions, and
the slate will be wiped clean.
Neither are rational positions.
The truth is my uncle lived his whole adult life, from the end of the Korean war to the turn of the century, believing that the end was near and that
judgement was at hand. He horded canned food and survival gear, and read books about storing food and survival. To no avail: he died and left all that
junk for the rest of us to sort through.
Belief in the immanent disclosure of ET phenomena is akin to the belief that god will return and invoke judgement on its creation. Or that demons are
running amok throughout the countryside. Or that a werewolf is responsible for a string of killings. It's the human mind meeting a relative unknown,
and filling in the blanks.
When seen in this way its no surprise that at fantasist like Farrakhan would call for disclosure. His whole life has been based on the belief in the
immanence of a finer moment, to the detriment of any real chance he had to actually make a positive difference.
