Our Not-So-Humble Government

Only a few months ago did the Pentagon release full video footage of three UFO sightings by the U.S. Navy. While much of the world continued to rave about the novel coronavirus pandemic, some paused in their toilet paper-hoarding hysteria to wonder in awe about the seemingly more realistic possibility that aliens do in fact exist.


Then coronavirus cases soared once more, and the Extraterrestrial evidence got lost in the midst of the COVID-19 chaos.


But the notion of other intelligent life existing in our universe is not something we should continue to keep pushing against the wayside. Governments around the world have been covering up evidence like this for far too long. The videos that were released in April of this year were from as far back as 2004. If they have been seeing things like this back then, imagine what other information they are withholding from us now.


One could argue that the release of these videos is a sign that the taboo of extraterrestrial research is starting to fade. However, it is still a vastly unexplored field that deserves more attention than it is getting. We need more scientists like Steven Greer who not only will dedicate themselves to the research, but actively will call out governments who hide alien evidence from their people.


As citizens of the Earth, we have a right to know about our cohabitants of the universe. If governments know more than they are letting on, which is undoubtedly true based on the withholding of these U.S. Navy videos, then there is all the more possibility that they will abuse any relationship that could be built between humans and other life forms.


We should be advocating to understand what governments know so far and continue to do more research on UFOs and extraterrestrial life, if not for the science itself, for our own humility. Political scientist Alexander Wendt said in an interview that he thinks there is “a belief that human beings are the most intelligent species on this planet, and it’s very hard to come to grips with the idea that if there are aliens here, they’re obviously much smarter than we are.”


And he’s right.


The research of intelligent life forms outside our planet is not just about discovering their existence; it is about humbling ourselves enough to realize that we are not the center of the world or of the universe. We must be open and willing to share what we know, and we will gain more knowledge in return, whether through our openness to ufology or actually interacting with other life forms. This humility of accepting our small role in the wide universe will lead us to more answers than if we were to stay closed up and turn a blind eye to what is happening right in front of us.
