I think there are a number of drivers affecting the posting of UFO videos and threads these days, which were not necessarily the case back in the day.
First of all, back in 2007, when I joined, we were in a different economic situation. The crash had not yet taken hold across the board, people had a
little more time on their hands, and a little more supposedly disposable income. Time on ones hands can make ones hands idle, and idle hands do the
hoaxers work. It must be said that some of the most amazing videos I have seen in my time here, turned out to be hoaxes. Gorgeous, atmospheric,
granular and impressive hoaxes, but hoaxes all the same. Folks who were doing that stuff back then may have been taken up with work commitments, may
even have started their own media companies or taken jobs with graphics and design elements, since those heady days.
The banking crash tightened people's focus, drew their attention from the heavens, toward earthly matters like their food allowance for the week,
changed lives so drastically and so quickly, that they were paying attention, some for the first time, to where the money went, how it got there, and
who was responsible for the collapse.
Further to that, revelations made by Snowden, vindicating much that had been theorised about government surveillance on this very website, has
altered the general dynamics of the user base. Vindication like that drew an awful lot of attention to the site from people who might have seen it as
a place for UFO nuts before, but realised that we had been talking about this stuff for years before it was ever publicly and widely known. That
coupled with the Wikileaks events, further vindicating the idea that many had back in the day, that the wars we were fighting did not make sense when
married to the official explanation, also altered the site dynamic.
There were all of a sudden, more and more posts about foreign policy, grassroots political discussion, and there has been, since the Snowden
revelations and the Wikileaks releases of import, a general need to keep an eye on the governments we live under, to an even greater degree than ever.
Simply put, current affairs have played a massive part in the change in dynamic around here, because all of a sudden the news that was out there in
the world, was that we were right on the money, that powers which were against liberty and freedom were in amongst us, wearing our various nations
colours, yet committing acts which could be considered treasonous, allegedly in our name, but actually in the name of whatever corporate interests
were best served in the doing of these acts.
Focus therefore shifted to pin governments against the cork board, and examine their construction and their agencies for further evidence of misdeed
and dishonourable conduct. Owing to the fact that there are many things about the way governments are run, which cause righteous persons to raise an
eyebrow, if not a battle standard, these issues have run and run, showing little sign of going away any time soon.
Getting to the here and now, politics has devolved and deconstructed itself under the weight of the failures, and outright criminality of past
leaders and administration members, such that things have become SO polarised that outrages occur almost daily, with baiting and taunting from both
candidates and grass roots supporters alike. Things are coming to a head in a massive way, and that is necessarily taking up a significant quantity of
Another thing to note, is that some of the most compelling and detail heavy incident reports are of cases of extreme age. Some have been debunked,
others remain interesting, but all of those have been gone over, time and again, from literally thousands of different view points. This website
contains one of the most extensive collections of data pertaining to these incidents, that has ever existed outside of a government facility, and it
would be easy to believe that there is little to be said on some of the oldest topics, that has not been discussed or stated before. Whether that
perception is accurate or not is another question, but with things being what they are at the moment in terms of current affairs, that perception is
unlikely to change, while the veils which occlude the operation of government from our sight are being blown clear from the rotten core of it all,
allowing us to observe its foul, corrupted heart. Truth that we can all see without a telescope is compelling.
There are many things that are considered more immediate, more concerning than the presence of alien life in our vicinity at the moment, and as
interested as I am personally in these things, I cannot help but be rather more concerned about the fact that we are arriving at several tipping
points geopolitically, and in terms of human consciousness. Technology is moving forward faster, money changing hands in a blur, and tomorrow is never
anything like yesterday. We live in interesting times, and our awareness is focused on that which threatens life and liberty. Perhaps this will change
