Richard Dolan: "UFO Secrecy and the Death of the American Republic"

I have always enjoyed a sci-fi show called Stargate. I want the TV show regularly. But the thing that gets under my skin is the perpetual insistence that all of our knowledge of UFO, aliens and the like, must be kept secret from the public. Yet, even it the show, many foreign governments are the first to know. Industry is not far behind. And their are more conspiracy plots than they can deal with. What is the problem with letting people know what we really have, or that UFOs are real? Why does the government insist on keeping things secret. Supposedly, it is to prevent mass panic - when no such thing has ever occurred. What about the "War of the Worlds" panic. Vastly overstated. And for the most part, a complete work of fiction - meaning the panic. This site, by the infamous and usually incompetent CSICOP group, first points out that there is little to no evidence this panic ever occurred, then warns us that it could happen again, forgetting to use the same logic they used to show it didn't happen like we are told. The only real panic they mention was a mob furious at being lied to. That can be, in my mind, the only reason that the government goes to such lengths to keep it quiet and discredited. But I don't think that is the whole story.

I think that real life is like my TV show gone bad. The power-hungary and corrupt and greedy have control of our government, and all the fun little toys in Area 51, or whereever. In this care, knowledge is power. There have been times when the media have grossly exaggerated something and excited the public, but the any panic was a created one. But in this case, any panic will be manipulated for more money or government control like what happened on 911.
