From Tinfoil Hat to Vindication: The Verification of a Conspiracy Theory
Søren Roest Korsgaard
During the second quarter of 2021, the mainstream press across the Western hemisphere has been stumbling upon each other to inform us that aliens might exist and have visited us. A search for “UFO” on Google News yields numerous recent articles: “How UFO Sightings Went From Conspiracy Theory To A Serious Government Inquiry,” “NASA chef says the agency is investigating UFOs,” “If UFOs are aliens, Obama hopes humanity would find ‘common ground,’” “Defense Department confirms leaked Navy UFO video,” “She´s a fighter pilot who saw a UFO. For Real,” “Chris Reed: The government says UFOs are real. What´s next?” “Opinion: That UFOs are real is easy to see,” and on and on. Across the Atlantic, we see a similar interest in the subject by the mainstream press and science commentators.
For decades, the UFO policy of the press was generally to stigmatize, humiliate, and put UFO researchers in the conspiracy theory domain; this is true regardless of whether you found yourself in Europe, US, Asia, or anywhere else. In past years, we experienced a psychological operation to discredit UFO believers and reject the idea of “extraterrestrial visitors” without investigation, despite an abundance of reports such as the 1947 UFO crash near Roswell, New Mexico.
There have been some courageous scientists who have risked their careers by taking extraterrestrials seriously, such as nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman and Apollo 14 Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell. I will not tax the readers with a dissertation of evidence for the existence of extraterrestrials, as such is readily available.
Dr. Steven Greer´s movie, “Unacknowledged: An Expose of the World´s Greatest Secret,” contains numerous credible sources, like high ranking military men, former intelligence operatives, and scientists coming clean about extraterrestrials visiting Earth and their strong interest in nuclear facilities and weaponry.
Governments have extensive knowledge of the UFO phenomenon and technology, but why the 180 degree turn from tinfoil hat to officially admitted phenomena? Why the sudden about face?
Obviously, flying saucers have been mustered in support of an agenda. One possible agenda is that an alien threat is a new reason for increasing the military/security complex budget. The militarization of space can be justified by the extraterristerial threat and disguise US preparation of an attack on Russia and China. Will there be some kind of false flag “alien attack” to bring the public into compliance?
A story could be borrowed from science fiction that some malevolent alien species has camouflaged themselves as humans, from which flows the justification for implementing all kinds of state-of-the-art mass surveillance technology and devices, in addition to a more global and widespread roll out of artificial intelligence intended to disempower people. In 2011, the Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman stated that the world needed “an alien invasion” in order to fix the financial crisis: “If we discovered that space aliens were planning to attack, and we needed a massive build-up to counter the space alien threat, and inflation and budget deficits took secondary place to that, this slump would be over in 18 months.”
The new UFO reporting and government reports could be used to heighten fears of Russian and Chinese military developments. A June 2021 New York Times article states that “Intelligence officials believe at least some of the aerial phenomena could have been experimental technology from a rival power, most likely Russia or China.” Julian E. Barnes and Helene Cooper, the authors of the article, emphasize that the US is falling behind rival powers: “One senior official briefed on the intelligence said without hesitation that U.S. officials knew it was not American technology. He said there was worry among intelligence and military officials that China or Russia could be experimenting with hypersonic technology. … Russia has been investing heavily in hypersonics, believing the technology offers it the ability to evade American missile-defense technology. China has also developed hypersonic weaponry, and included it in military parades. If the phenomena were Chinese or Russian aircraft, officials said, that would suggest the two powers’ hypersonic research had far outpaced American military development.”
The sudden elevation of tinfoil hats to legitimacy is a two-edged sword. Now that UFOs are officially acknowledged, will other claims, such as those by former Canadian Minister of Defense Paul Hellyer be considered?
Personally, I would be relaxed more than alarmed by extraterrestials keeping an eye on us. They haven’t used their superior technology to dominate us. It is all to the best if they decide we can’t be trusted with nuclear weapons any more than children should be able to play with matches and take them away from us. As Washington has proved incapable of maintaining good relations with Russia and China, the extraterristerials could perform the adult role.
