If you ever troll the oddball forumsposted by The Vidiot @ 2:55 PM Permalink You’ll know what I mean when I say that they chat about something called disclosure when it comes to UFO information. They believe that all of the major governments and players are suppressing the truth about the UFO phenomenon, meaning, they think aliens exist, alien technology has been acquired and the government knows about it and has maybe even struck a nefarious deal with various and sundry of the aliens. Recently, there's been a lot of hullabaloo on the forums because of recent disclosure-like news stories. From the Vatican announcement that it was OK to believe in aliens to the shuttle astronauts basically saying we're not alone to the Brazilian Air Force Brigadier saying the silence must end to the recent release of UFO-related documents by the UK, everything, to them, points to the possibility that the powers that be are softening us up for the real deal.
Why do I mention this stuff? Well, because I'm bored, for one thing. For another thing, I find the whole concept of aliens fascinating (and who doesn't) but the really fascinating thing about this stuff is how much energy is devoted to the topic. I don't see too many forums discussing the possibilities of a post-nation state future and what that might look like or how a nonprofit-based capitalist system might function. No. They're spending their time dissecting the minutia of every public report of alien encounters. (I mean, are you aware that there is a pseudo science called Exopolitics?)
Honestly, everyone should just put their aliens and Bilderbergers and illuminatis and masons aside for a moment and focus on what's real and tangible. Sure, all of those things may well exist, but we can't do much about them. We can make changes in our lives and in the world around us. If we all worked at the same thing, imagine the reality we COULD create. All that other stuff is just a freakin' distraction.
However, if you're a REAL conspiracy theorist, you just might think that all of these little pieces of UFO-related information are being tossed out there just to keep the idiots busy, to distract them even more from even more scandalous behavior by the powers that be.
Update: I am not kidding when I say that these folks think EVERYTHING is a conspiracy. NASA was making quite a big deal about some announcement that they were going to make today and these forums were all atwitter about it. Turns out, it was really nothing, some supernova remnant or something, but here's what they think it was really all about:
NASA purposefully created an atmosphere of SUSPENSE to gauge our reaction to news of the "disclosure".See what I mean?
