“‘Through counter-intelligence it should be possible to pinpoint potential trouble-makers and neutralize them…’ ‘and neutralize them…’ Wake Up!”
Lyrics from “Wake Up” by Rage Against The Machine
— quoting a March 1968 FBI memo
On a personal level, there were many ‘elephant in the room’ components to the issue of UFOs and contact that made me reluctantly dip back into the literature circa 2005 and try and work out was going on once more. Aside from 23,000 year old cave paintings of aliens and their apparent craft – a more modern jaw-dropper was finding out that, in the post-war era, the UFO issue was rated ‘higher than the hydrogen-bomb’ with regards to it’s secrecy and national security status. Here, we once more find ourselves in Alice in Wonderland territory with regards to the issue of visiting intelligences. Why would official structures claim this subject was nothing more than illusory – officially declare the intelligence status of nuclear weapons as LESS important than the supposedly fictitious flying saucer stuff? The same contradiction becomes obvious when dealing with the individuals who contribute to the field in any way. The aim was to make authors irrelevant, professional pilots or military made to fear career suicide and those even closer to the phenomena as kooks or low-IQ morons.
In the last decade or so, the previous tactics that may have had a degree of success in keeping the issue out of mainstream culture began to become ineffective. For one, attempting to supress an evolutionary process is never going to be a battle you can win – even with all the resources you could desire at your fingertips. You start to get the idea that there may be something inherent in some of us to twist everything into a cosmic, mythical battle. So a policy that may have started with a degree of noble intent in the confused aftermath of WW2 has now become un-workable. More importantly, the passing decades have resulted in some seeing the whole vast approach as having far from benign agendas by growing numbers on all sides. Couple this with the recent boom in information communications technology and cheaper gadgets for unmediated contact with aspects of the ET issue and you can’t avoid an apex point looming on the horizon.
