Quote# 134788

The moment the government seriously addresses UFOs is the moment they have a bunch of people start asking really strange questions, like "so what about all those people who claim to be getting abducted by aliens?" and "what about those dead cattle", and other things that can't be answered, and a bunch of new lies that need to be told to 'maintain order', so it's better to just pretend nothing is happening and that none of it exists. How about "so what about all those people who have come out and talked about you guys having military programs associated with the subject?", "how about all those lies you guys have been telling us for so many years now?", or "so what about those ICBM shut-down incidents", or "how about the guys who say flying discs appeared during ICBM launch testing and knocked the missile out of the sky while it was all being filmed?".

Anyone in government who knows anything about it couldn't possibly acknowledge it without negative consequences personally or socially, and they react the same way Fife Symington made fun of the whole thing when he was Governor in order to try and keep people calm after the UFO(s) appeared over Phoenix, when in reality he had witnessed it himself and years later told his story to the world about having seen something that 'shook his reality', that he believed came from somewhere other than Earth. If they know, they can't acknowledge it because they don't have any comfortable answers, and with the resources that states have to mount investigations, chances are they have more information than your average man on the street, but maybe the answers they do have are too scary or have implications that are too serious to share with the general public.

that and through human history we see examples of societies and cultures falling apart when confronted with superior or further advanced cultures, they lose their own identities and their established social order crumbles or changes drastically, and the people with power and social position wouldn't want that, making this particular subject one of the biggest secrets - and one of the easiest to keep because a majority of people think they're being intelligent by not believing it. All those big government agencies really exist for the same purpose, to uphold and defend the established social order, to avert social collapse, to keep the rich folks safe from the poor folks and the poor folks safe from each other and managed 'for the good of all', UFOs are something that might negatively impact that, so it can't be acknowledged.

OK, let's follow the First Law: make sure there is actually something to be explained before you waste your time explaining it.
