If there is such a thing as a global conspiracy, I suspect it's a conspiracy amongst the world's most privileged elites to protect themselves and their wealth from a coming time of chaos.
They believe this chaos itself will sweep away the underlying problem, which they see as far too many people, billions of increasingly desperate people, hopelessly unfit for the demands of tomorrow, let alone the reality of aliens.
If a collapse should come of the global economy, or even global environment, these privileged elite believes they could survive to rebuild in a much less crowded world. They foresee wars in many places, fought mainly over dwindling supplies of food, water and fuel.
Although broad use of nuclear weapons is very unlikely, chemical and biological agents might be used, hastening the demise of excess population. Through it all the privileged elite could remain relatively unscathed.
The fact is, such a scenario is quite plausible, but I don't believe most of our political leaders are thinking this way. At least not yet. Most of them do not imagine, nor could they condone, the catastrophic demise of billions of innocent people, even if they cannot precisely explain how to prevent it.
They continue to hope against all hope that solutions will be found to our mounting global problems. What they cherish most is time, just a little more time.
In this light, official UFO revelations may seem politically absurd. The reality of UFOs and alien contact is potentially so devastating to the status quo that no world leader can feel comfortable thinking about it, let alone admitting it out loud. But the cover-up is cracking; the time of denial is nearly over. What this particularly means is other breakdowns as well; breakdowns of authority; of time honored beliefs; of expectations for the future.
Though time predictions are notoriously risky, I would not be surprised if these breakdowns began in earnest around the turn of this decade. If we consider the message of (alien) abductees, it is possible that our alien visitors have planned for all this well in advance.
It may be that thousands of ordinary citizens have been subjected to alien indoctrination, even trained for special roles in the coming time of trouble. If this is true, it might mean at some crucial hour the most privileged and powerful humans on earth could discover they're not really in control at all.
Given the available evidence, I draw the following conclusions:
There is a substantial alien presence on planet earth, a fact well known to secretive factions within the major governments.
There are apparently several different types of aliens active on earth, displaying a variety of behaviors and agendas, although their true nature remains entirely unknown.
At least some abductions events involve real human interaction with aliens. While many such events are terrifying to the experiencers, there are few indications of hostility on the part of the abductors and some indications of benevolent intent.
Various alien groups are engaged in activities aimed at indoctrinating abductees, reducing human destruction of the environment, and possibly creating hybrid beings suited to the planet's future.
The basic problem for the world's governments in acknowledging the alien presence is loss of control, loss of public confidence and the mandate to govern.
Thus there is little incentive for any major government to tell the truth about the alien presence, but information is leaking out at an increasing rate, containment is disintegrating and the public demand for answers is growing, therefore some kind of government acknowledgement is likely within a few years.
This will be a delaying tactic, aimed at preserving government control, perhaps an admission of some past alien event that gives justification for increased military preparedness.
However the exact nature and outcome of such an announcement, if it happens, is impossible to predict. Of course, if the evidence we know is not true, the conclusions I've drawn are also unreliable. Further research and the march of time will eventually settle any doubts. Meanwhile, you must judge for yourself.
Therefore I urge you to carry on, continue to inquire, learn all you can, share what you find and make a space in your mind and heart for the stories told by others who've come closer to the alien presence than you have - they are the pioneers of a new reality - a job most of them never expected, and few of them really want.
That new reality is coming fast. It will bring turmoil and upset with it, so take heed, don't be complacent, we live in extraordinary times and the world is far stranger than we thought. This doesn't have to be bad news.
It will be what we decide to make of it, together.
