Abstract

There has been a worldwide suppression of a secret extraterrestrial
presence on Earth for at least 50 years from the general public and most
elected public officials. The official public disclosure of the
extraterrestrial presence has long been speculated to be imminent. The
repeated delays have led to much uncertainty over when the secret
extraterrestrial presence will eventually be disclosed. Some
whistleblowers persuasively argue that once international terrorism fails
to be a credible justification for the vast military expenditures by the
U.S. military, then military-intelligence
agencies will turn to the extraterrestrial presence to justify such
expenditu However, rather than ^—when^“ being the critical issue to be
decided, it appears that the more difficult issue is ^—how^“ the
extraterrestrial presence will be disclosed or ^—politically spun^“. The
different scenarios of a first contact that have emerged into the public
arena by various UFO researchers/whistleblowers point to a competition
between and within government agencies for how ^—First Contact^“ will be
^—spun^“ for world-wide consumption. It appears that there are strong
factional rivalries within clandestine organizations that respectively
have their own favored contact scenario. It is these rivalries that best
explain the long delay in public disclosure of the extraterrestrial
presence.

 

 Preparing for ^—First Contact^“ is a means of understanding the full
extent of the extraterrestrial presence, the accompanying secrecy that
has accompanied this, and being ready for a ^—First Contact^“ event that
firmly transforms human life on Earth. There are, however, a number of
contact scenarios that put a particular ^—spin^“ on the extraterrestrial
presence that would allow clandestine national security agencies to
continue to control extraterrestrial affairs in a secret and undemocratic
manner. Significant changes in public opinion of extraterrestrials can be
attributed not just to alleged extraterrestrial behavior and spontaneous
changes in public attitudes, but to a secret competition between
different factions of the ^—shadow government^“ promoting perceptions
that support a particular First Contact scenario that best permits their
continued influence and power.

 

Beginning in the months of October/November 2003, an alternative scenario
began circulating on the World Wide Web that has led to the emergence of
a new actor in how public opinion is being shaped for a ^—First Contact^“
event. This new actor is outside of the mass media system that is largely
controlled by a small number of elites associated with management groups
of extraterrestrial affairs, and appears to be solely a result of a
spontaneous global response to ^—when^“ and ^—how^“ First Contact should
occur. In what follows, I examine three First Contact scenarios that have
varying degrees of support and can be considered most likely to occur.
Finally, I examine how public opinion is being shaped in ways that
promote particular First Contact scenarios, and the respective roles of
extraterrestrials, national security agencies, UFO/exopolitics
researchers, and the general public.

 

About the Author

Dr. Michael E. Salla is a pioneer in the development of exopolitics, the
scholarly study of the political implications of an extraterrestrial
presence that is not acknowledged to the general public, elected
officials nor the mass media. His interest in exopolitics evolved out of
his investigation of the sources of international conflict and its
relationship with the undisclosed extraterrestrial presence. He cites
evidence of as many as sixteen different extraterrestrial races currently
interacting with humanity in a variety of ways, with a number of other
races simply monitoring the Earth (click to read). His groundbreaking
book Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence
(Dandelion Books, 2004) presents the first scholarly framework for
understanding the political implications of the extraterrestrial
presence.



Dr. Salla is an internationally recognized scholar in international
politics, conflict resolution, 'track two diplomacy', US foreign policy,
and is the author/editor of an additional four books including The Hero's
Journey Toward a Second American Century (Greenwood Press, 2002); Essays
on Peace (Central Queensland University Press, 1995); Why the Cold War
Ended (Greenwood Press, 1995); and Islamic Radicalism, Muslim Nations and
the West (1993). He has also authored more than seventy articles,
chapters, and book reviews on peace, ethnic conflict and conflict
resolution. He has held academic appointments in the School of
International Service& the Center for Global Peace, American University,
Washington DC (1996-2004); the Department of Political Science,
Australian National University, Canberra, Australia (1994-96); and the
Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University,
Washington D.C., (2002). He has a PhD in Government from the University
of Queensland, Australia, and an MA in Philosophy from the University of
Melbourne, Australia.



Dr Salla has conducted research and fieldwork in the ethnic conflicts in
East Timor,Kosovo, Macedonia, and Sri Lanka, and organized succesful
'track two diplomacy' and peacemaking initiatives involving mid to high
level participants from these conflicts. He combines his experience in
'track two diplomacy' in the interational arena with his exopolitics
research to produce a unique set of skills and knowledge base for
'galactic diplomacy' involving private citizens and groups. It is his
unique scholarly combination of conflict resolution, 'track two
diplomacy', international politics and exopolitics that provides a firm
foundation for establishing key principles and practices of ^—track two
galactic diplomacy'.

POLITICAL SPIN AND EXTRATERRESTRIAL DISCLOSURE ^÷ SHAPING PUBLIC OPINION
FOR ^—FIRST CONTACT^“ WITH EXTRATERRESTRIALS

 

Introduction [1]

There has been a worldwide suppression of a secret extraterrestrial
presence on Earth for at least 50 years from the general public and most
elected public officials. The official public disclosure of the
extraterrestrial presence has long been speculated to be imminent. In an
alleged 1954 meeting between President Eisenhower and an extraterrestrial
delegation, for example, it was reported that disclosure of the
extraterrestrial presence was imminent. [2] The repeated delays have led
to much uncertainty over when the secret extraterrestrial presence will
eventually be disclosed. Some whistleblowers persuasively argue that once
international terrorism fails to be a credible justification for the vast
military expenditures by the U.S. military, then military-intelligence
agencies will turn to the extraterrestrial presence to justify such
expenditure. [3] However, rather than ^—when^“ being the critical issue
to be decided, it appears that the more difficult issue is ^—how^“ the
extraterrestrial presence will be disclosed or ^—politically spun^“.
There appears to be a secret effort to shape public opinion of an
extraterrestrial presence in a way that prepares the public to accept a
particular ^—first contact^“ scenario.

 

It appears that what has yet to be decided is when public disclosure of
the extraterrestrial presence occurs and how it will be ^—spun^“ to
facilitate continued control by small clandestine groups of public
officials not governed by usual democratic rules over accountability and
transparency. The different scenarios of a first contact that have
emerged into the public arena by various UFO researchers/whistleblowers
point to a competition between and within government agencies for how
^—First Contact^“ will be ^—spun^“ for world-wide consumption. It appears
that there are strong factional rivalries within clandestine
organizations that respectively have their own favored contact scenario.
It is these rivalries that best explain the long delay in public
disclosure of the extraterrestrial presence.

 

 Preparing for ^—First Contact^“ is a means of understanding the full
extent of the extraterrestrial presence, the accompanying secrecy that
has accompanied this, and being ready for a ^—First Contact^“ event that
firmly transforms human life on Earth. There are, however, a number of
contact scenarios that put a particular ^—spin^“ on the extraterrestrial
presence that would allow clandestine national security agencies to
continue to control extraterrestrial affairs in a secret and undemocratic
manner. Significant changes in public opinion of extraterrestrials can be
attributed not just to alleged extraterrestrial behavior and spontaneous
changes in public attitudes, but to a secret competition between
different factions of the ^—shadow government^“ promoting perceptions
that support a particular First Contact scenario that best permits their
continued influence and power. Beginning in the months of
October/November 2003, an alternative scenario began circulating on the
World Wide Web that has led to the emergence of a new actor in how public
opinion is being shaped for a ^—First Contact^“ event. This new actor is
outside of the mass media system that is largely controlled by a small
number of elites associated with management groups of extraterrestrial
affairs, and appears to be solely a result of a spontaneous global
response to ^—when^“ and ^—how^“ First Contact should occur.

 

 The new actor comprises a number of rapidly emerging ^—contact groups^“
that believe global humanity has been recently contacted by
extraterrestrial races that want to know if ordinary citizens want
extraterrestrials to simply ^—show up^“ and end public secrecy over the
extraterrestrial presence. The rapid emergence of these ^—contact
groups^“ their impact on global public opinion on extraterrestrials, and
repression of key spokespersons of these contact groups, suggests a
secret struggle exists between multiple players over ^—when^“ and ^—how^“
First Contact will occur. In what follows, I examine three First Contact
scenarios that have varying degrees of support and can be considered most
likely to occur. Finally, I examine how public opinion is being shaped in
ways that promote particular First Contact scenarios, and the respective
roles of extraterrestrials, national security agencies, UFO/exopolitics
researchers, and the general public.
