As we inch closer to the definitive disclosure that 'extraterrestrial' beings are visiting our planet themselves - or are perhaps sending advanced extensions of their biology in the form of sophisticated interplanetary/interdimensional drones - mainstream media is taking a deep dive into the philosophical implications that such discovery will have on our culture.
A few hours ago, Ezra Klein, a columnist for The New York Times, dropped an excellent opinion piece about the recent events taking place in government regarding the UFO conundrum. In the article, Ezra explores the subject in an unbiased and critical way, and poses important questions about the potential destabilizing effects on society following a public acknowledgement of the UFO reality by the highest levels of power:
I suspect, would be a collapse in public trust. Decades of U.F.O. reports and conspiracies would take on a different cast. Governments would be seen as having withheld a profound truth from the public, whether or not they actually did. We already live in an age of conspiracy theories. Now the guardrails would truly shatter, because if U.F.O.s were real, despite decades of dismissals, who would remain trusted to say anything else was false? Certainly not the academics who’d laughed them off as nonsense, or the governments who would now be seen as liars.
It remains to be seen whether these worst-case scenarios will ever materialize in our times; or whether the public will accept the UFO presence in a blasé manner. The important lesson to derive from an almost century-old experiment into an organized culture of denial and secrecy, is that truth always finds a way.
