This is a simple question with a complex premise – a question that has, at various times, been proposed, hinted-at, and blatantly directed depending
on the volatility of the subject matter on this esteemed forum. Specifically regarding Aliens and UFO subject matter:
Are there disinformation agents active on ATS? If the answer is affirmative, as we’ve all heard many members assert, then the corollaries must also
be asked: To what extent are these agents active? Who do they represent? Alphabet-Acronym Government organizations? If government, are they
Domestic or Foreign or Both? Which Countries? How about the Main-Stream Media (TMSM)? What of commercial interests or private concerns, such as
corporations, think tanks, or consulting firms? Who else may be involved -Institutions – academic, NGOs? Do private vagabonds and individual
protagonists chime in?
Disinformation is intentionally false or inaccurate information that is spread deliberately. It is an act of deception and false statements to
convince someone of untruth. Wikipedia
Let’s assume for the time being that there are, in fact, one or more, perhaps even a majority, of the entities described above active on this (and
other) forum/blog/social network sites, purposefully deceiving or attempting to influence viewers and participants toward an erroneous or dubious
conclusion. Why? What is the ulterior motive? What is the agenda??
Other than the obvious conclusion of: they are here to lie to us, to discourage belief in aliens/UFOs, etc. – what else is there? If we agree that
such disinformation agents exist and are active here (and, indeed, may be ubiquitous), who is paying them? WHY ARE THEY LYING TO US? What do they
hope to gain by doing so? Is it fear of disclosure?
Where did this idea that the common man, society, the unwashed masses that are the unprivileged ignorant (you and me), do not deserve the truth,
can’t handle the truth, or should not be entitled to the truth? Why NOT? Who decided this was to be the case? To what end? Merely to protect
military advantage/secrets? As part of an alien agenda, at their behest? Why?
And another thing: How is that so many disparate agencies, international governments, and private enterprises are able to pull this off in concert?
There seems to be an amazing dichotomy here if we are to accept that all of these separate, contradicting units, that compete and bungle and conflict
on every other global issue are somehow able to ‘keep it together’ when it comes to protecting this oh-so-important secret! What? We can
pollute and destroy our planet, kill each other with abandon, ruin our economies, fight over and botch the most innocuous issue, fail and fiasco our
way through every international dispute – but we (they) are somehow able to enforce and maintain a disinformation campaign and keep us in the dark
over this Alien/UFO question indefinitely? Is that believable?
Is it working? Again, assuming that this disinformation agenda is active and pervasive, is it having the desired affect? Not sure about you all, but
it has been a frustrating exercise on numerous topics trying to get at the truth –or even just the semblance of truth. Many threads here seem to
have a deliberate ‘curve ball’ thrown in at just the right moment, which often quickly dissolves the thread into a pissing-match between skeptics
and believers, CGI/Photoshop-enthusiasts and witnesses, etc. Mission accomplished? Have you ever found yourself enjoying a discussion, and then
extracting yourself once the sparks start to fly, and instead of examining and discussing the topic, participants revert to name-calling and personal
accusations unrelated to the issue? So you bail. Me too. Mission accomplished?
So what say you? Are there disinformation agents active on ATS, and what do YOU think they are trying to accomplish? WHY are they doing it? WHO is
controlling it/paying for it? WHY? I’ve encountered some of the sharpest minds, and most astute observers and thinkers here on ATS – I’d be
very interested in your opinion on this. Thanks for your time…
