There are many challenges that global humanity must face in responding to the possible intervention of Extraterrestrials (ETs) in human affairs if humanity is to maintain its sovereignty and independence. Foremost among these is identifying the difference between ET races which directly intervene in human affairs without explicit authorization or permission from humans on an individual and/or collective basis, and those races which adopt a non-interventionary role when such permission is not forthcoming. While ascribing moral categories solely on the interventionary policy of ET races is a not a sufficient condition for understanding the various agenda of ETs, it does serve as a necessary condition for helping distinguish between ET races who have a long term goal of promoting human sovereignty and independence, and those ET’s whose goal is undermining these fundamental principles.
As a general rule, ET races that directly intervene in human affairs, without explicit permission to do so from individuals and governments, do not serve humanity’s best interests in terms of human sovereignty and independence. Conversely, a second rule is that those alien races that only intervene in human affairs when explicit permission has been given, behave in a way that is more consistent with humanity’s best interest in terms of human sovereignty and independence
Keeping the above general rules in mind, it is possible to now understand the primary dangers that confront humanity in maintaining its sovereignty and independence in responding to the intervention of technologically advanced ET races. The first ‘danger’ is the perception fostered by those that believe that humanity’s best hope in maintaining sovereignty and independence is through a rapid technological revolution in the military sector. The second ‘danger’ is the belief that ET’s that intervene during a possible global environmental, economic and/or political disaster are the saviors of humanity and play a role that can be explained in Christian religious terminology as the “Second Coming”.
The crux of both of these dangers is that global humanity on an individual and collective basis ‘gives its sovereignty and independence’ away to those that control military technology used as the prime instrument of individual or collective defence; or to so-called “benevolent” ETs who intervene in time to save global humanity from some impending global crisis engineered by corrupt or militaristic human/ET groups.
The Danger Posed by a Military Response to ET Intervention
The first danger arises from the strength of the military industrial complex in countries such as the U.S. and the effect on the psychological disposition of Americans to accept the use of military force in resolving political problems. President Dwight Eisenhower who presided during the formation of many clandestine U.S. government organizations that were set up to respond to increasing incidents of ET intervention in human affairs, became alarmed at the growing power of these organizations and the symbiotic relationship between large US corporations and the military.
In his famous departing speech of 1961, he directly mentioned the power of the military industrial complex and the need to be wary of the intertwined relationships between corporations and the military in producing advanced military technology. The underlying idea here is that such organizations foster a militarized response to the ET presence and incidents of ET intervention through producing advanced weaponry based on ‘captured’ or ‘traded’ ET technology that can respond to the ET presence in a way that preserves humanity’s sovereignty and independence.
Leading policy makers in the various organizations that support a military response to ET intervention wish to avoid a repeat of the calamity that befell the indigenous civilization of the America’s which were destroyed by the technologically more advanced, though numerically small, Spanish invasion. Those supporting a military response to the ET presence generally and ET intervention in particular, have in mind a policy similar to the Meiji restoration of Japan where in a short few decades Japan responded to the presence of more technologically advanced European nations by rapidly industrializing its military, technological and political sectors to the extent that it transformed itself from a weak feudal state characterized by competing warlords to a centralized dynastic kingdom under the Meiji Emperors.
The Meiji Restoration led to the most remarkable industrialization effort ever witnessed and was so rapid and far reaching in scope that Japan was in a few short decades able to defeat a major European power, Russia, during the 1905 Russo-Japanese war. More stupendous was Japan’s military performance during the Second World War where it came very close to defeating the U.S. and its allied forces in the Pacific. What distinguished the Meiji Restoration as an example of a less developed civilization responding to the presence and intervention of a more ‘advanced’ civilization was the ability of the Japanese to quickly unify in response to the threat posed by colonial Europe and the U.S., as opposed to the disunity that characterized the indigenous kingdoms of the Americas that were easily picked off one at a time by the cunning Spanish Conquistadores.
The military industrial complex and the clandestine organizations in the US and Europe responding to the U.S. presence clearly have the Japanese model in mind as evidenced by the whistleblower testimonies of Colonel Corso and others who participated in clandestine reverse engineering programs not disclosed to the general public and elected public officials. Clandestine government organizations are going to great efforts to ‘modernize’ their weapon systems through trade, treaties and even military confrontation with ET races in the hope that global humanity through its strongest nations will be able to deal with the ET presence through a position of strength. At the global political level, there are efforts to centralize the use of military force through global multilateral institutions such as the UN (Iraq 1991) or NATO (Kosovo 1999); or a multilateral action led the US with the support of a ‘coalition of the willing’ (Iraq 2003).
At first sight, a global policy based on the Meiji restoration is very understandable and even praiseworthy in the means by which it sets out to preserve humanity’s sovereignty and independence by a rapid program of military modernization and global political unity. There are nevertheless dangers in following the Meiji model of transformation in responding to the interventionary activities of more technologically advanced ET races. One is the lesson provided by history itself where Japan was defeated in the Second World War as a result of an overconfidence possessed by its still immature political leaders who were captivated by the success of militarism in transforming Japan. Militarists grew in power and asserted Japanese power in a way that broke the tacit diplomatic boundaries essential for preserving regional peace.
This is currently being evidenced in the U.S. where recent military successes in Afghanistan and Iraq have elevated the influence of political leaders who espouse a doctrine of military intervention as a means of resolving U.S. foreign policy problems that is not that dissimilar to Japanese militarism early in the twentieth century. There is a likely hood that the clandestine government organizations representing global humanity — still relatively immature in dealing with interplanetary affairs between ET species — may similarly overstep tacit boundaries that exist which prevent an overt and large scale extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs.
The danger of clandestine government organizations taking global humanity down a path of militarism in responding to the ET presence is very real since non-disclosure of the ET presence to the general public and elected political leaders means that only a select few are privy to knowledge of all aspects of the ET presence and interventions, and only this privileged minority participate in the policy making process. There is the testimony of former participants in clandestine government activities such as Preston Nichols , Stewart Swerdlow, Al Bielak, Peter Moon, Stephen Schwartz, and others that secret interplanetary wars are already being conducted by Earth based clandestine organizations using advanced military technology.
This suggests that the policy making process concerning how to respond to the ET intervention and the use of ET technology is dominated by those in the military-intelligence sector of national governments who have a predisposition toward the utility of a military-technological response. The restricted policy making process that takes place in organizations embedded in elite military and security organizations conspires to exclude seasoned, and more accountable diplomats and elected representatives, that would be more cautious in their optimism over the utility of military technology in negotiating with and responding to technologically sophisticated, but lower dimensional ET races.
In summary, the continued non-disclosure of the ET presence, and the focus on an increasing militarized response to ET interventions, reflected in part by increased militarism in international affairs as evidenced most recently by U.S. intervention in Iraq, constitutes a great danger to human sovereignty and independence since it may lead to a kind of interplanetary war [that former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer has sought to warn humanity about] where defeat would totally erase humanity’s sovereignty and independence. As Japan might testify in response to its own loss of sovereignty and independence after rapid advances in military technology led to the growth of Japanese militarism and a disastrous confrontation with the U.S., a militarized response to a technologically advanced civilization carries many inherent perils.
The Danger of a staged Second Coming orchestrated though clerical elites
The second danger is the pervasive belief by hundreds of millions if not billions of people around the planet that there is to be an “End Times’”where there will be a ‘Second Coming’ involving the return of a spiritually advanced being such as Christ for Christians; Messiah for Jews, Isa for Muslims; Kalki for the Hindus; Maitreya for Buddhists, etc. Such a being would presumably save humanity from an impending global catastrophe engineered by corrupt individuals/institutions, or a disastrous military conflict with hostile ET races, and usher in a golden age of peace and harmony.
The belief in a ‘Second Coming’ is so deeply embedded in the collective psyche of humanity that it could be well described as an archetype of the ‘collective unconscious’. It can be predicted that such an archetype would be exploited by ET races wishing to remove humanity’s sovereignty and independence in a much more covert way than overt ET intervention. This indeed would parallel the Spanish Conquest of the Americas where conquistadores such as Hernando Cortes exploited the religious belief system of the native Americans and persuaded them that the Spaniards were the ‘returning gods’ [John Lash in metahistory.org documents that the ancient Gnostics viewed specifically Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as the "Doctrine of the Aliens" (Manipulative/Regressive)].
A number of controversial book authors such as Al Bielak, Preston Nichols, Stewart Swerdlow, Peter Moon and others claim to have been part of a clandestine military project dubbed the ‘Montauk Project’ which used advanced technology such as genetic cloning, holographic projection and time-travel. Such technology was said to have been given to clandestine government organizations by various ET races. If such reports are accurate, then it would be possible and even likely that the pervasive belief in a ‘Second Coming’ could be exploited by ET groups that freely intervene in human affairs and who allegedly enter into agreements with clandestine government organizations.
Using time travel technology, such ET races could use DNA samples from the ‘historic Jesus’ or religious relics such as the Shroud of Turin, to clone a hybrid ET/human being that could be passed off as the returning Christ. Using holographic projection around key areas of the globe, such a figure could appear in the miraculous manner expected by religious adherents. As the result of DNA testing and a host of miracles manufactured either by ET holographic technology or by the ET/human hybrid himself, such a being and his supporters could persuade a sufficient number of believers from the different religious traditions that he was the returning Christ/Messiah/Isa/Kalki/Maitreya.
It could be expected that such a being could bring about peace in perennial conflicts such as Israel/Palestine, Kashmir, and elsewhere, by the force of his charismatic personality, miraculous deeds, and overt support by ET groups. If such a ‘Second Coming’ were to happen, this new ‘Christ’ would gain enormous global authority. The religious authority of such a hybrid being and the associated ET races supporting such a ‘returned Christ’ would pose a direct threat to the sovereignty and independence of global humanity.
Traditional religious institutions such as the Catholic Church would receive a huge boost in authority and relevance as they would predictably form a close relationship with this returned ‘Christ’ and the ET races supporting him. There is evidence already that the Catholic Church is undergoing a significant doctrinal change where senior clerics including the Pope himself now support the ‘possible “benevolence” of ET races and their abilities to faithfully express the message of Christ. The final result would be a new religious dispensation where humanity is indoctrinated with the authority of a new global religion that integrates the ‘Second Coming’ with overt ET intervention. The release to the general public of advanced ET technology that resolves global environmental problems, and the co-opting of amenable religious authorities would be powerful markers of the ‘new dispensation’.
The ‘opponents’ of this new religious dispensation and the global authority of an ET manufactured Christ/Messiah would be those that deny the authority of such a being and the global institutions and processes that are created in the wake of his authority and charisma. There would be many from traditional religious belief systems that would deny such a new dispensation as has been historically the pattern when widespread religious reform has occurred. Historically, however, such opposition weakens as religious adherents slowly convert to the new dispensation. The strongest opposition to a staged Second Coming heralding a new religious dispensation would be those in the ‘New Age’ and ‘New Thought’ movements who typically champion more autonomous or sovereign individual decision making without appeal to external religious authority.
Popular New Age channels/leaders such as Lee Carroll, Geoffrey Hope, Drunvalo Melchizedek, Jasmuheen, Barbara Marciniak and leaders in the New Thought movements found in churches such as Unity, Universal Unitarian, Christian Science, and others, all focus on the sovereignty and independence of each individual as they are able to give full expression to their own inner divinity and authority. Adherents of these New Age and New Thought ideals are very dismissive of universal claims of religious authority, and while a staged Second Coming may hold some initial appeal with its connection to various ET races and the “historic Jesus”, the religious dimension associated with it would be eventually opposed.
A growing religious/spiritual conflict between the believers in the so-called “Returned Christ”, and ‘unbelievers’ in the ‘New Age’ and ‘New Thought’ movements and dissenting religious groups would therefore emerge. A wave of political repression could be launched in democratic nations where adherents in the New Dispensation confront and violate the rights of those opposed. Adherents of New Age/New Thought would be either repressed or marginalized ensuring the rapid spread of a new ET inspired global religion which places at the pinnacle of global authority an ET hybrid claiming to be the “returned Christ” whose DNA would match the “historical Jesus”.
Conclusion: Preserving Human Sovereignty and Independence
Global humanity has a rapid learning curve ahead of it, if humanity is to navigate the challenges posed by ET intervention to human sovereignty and independence. Thankfully, there are genuinely< benevolent ET races assisting humanity in its evolution into a race of sovereign and independent beings capable of stewardship of planet Earth and her rich resources. These ET races, however, follow a policy of non-intervention in human affairs which distinguishes them from less or non-spiritually evolved ET races who have other priorities than the evolution of global humanity.
The key for global humanity navigating these present and future dangers is to be alert to belief systems that allow the possibility of interventionist ET’s subverting human sovereignty and independence. Put in its simplest terms, the prescription for responding adequately to ET intervention in human affairs is that individuals should not give their power away to others claiming to hold the means to save humanity either through technological means or a new religious belief system proclaiming a new saviour.
Each individual needs to develop in a fashion suitable to their own temperament and spiritual sensibility, that leads to a reconnection to a part of themselves, their ‘higher self’, ‘soul’, ‘spirit’, etc., toward Human Development. Given the present focus of much of global humanity in dealing with the challenging material conditions that confront individuals in terms of shrinking labour markets, erosion of state welfare, and threats posed by global terrorism, this will be a great challenge to many who have been forced into mental slavery in associated with the pursuit of greed that is associated with global capitalism.
The preservation of human sovereignty and independence lies in humanity affirming its free will as sentient beings in the universe, that are connected with each other socially, and spiritually, in relation to a context of Human Development, and with Nature.
Placing faith in military technology as a response to ET intervention, and/or a new religious authority/dispensation will play into the hands of ET races which desire to undermine human sovereignty and independence. ET intervention in human affairs has been occurring for at least the last 50 years according to numerous testimonies from former government/military officials in various clandestine organizations. There is evidence from archeological, historical and religious sources that cycles from overt to covert ET intervention have occurred for many thousands of years. What distinguishes our modern era is that ET intervention has largely been covert as a result of clandestine government suppression of the ET presence. However, it is very likely that this will soon change in a dramatic fashion either in the form of an overt conflict with ET’s by militarized clandestine government organizations who unwittingly overstep tacit boundaries that limit overt ET intervention, and/or an engineered ‘Second Coming’.
These likely events require some forethought into how individuals and global humanity can best respond to such events/announcements while preserving human sovereignty and independence. While the… [CONTINUED.. see comment below]

Americans face difficult choices in a two political party based system
by Charles Mercieca, Ph.D. (adapted)
In spite of the fact that theoretically there are several political parties in the United States, in practice there are two major political parties that control the entire nation in one way or another. They happen to have a different philosophy in the concept of priorities and government.
Two Major U.S. Political Parties
While the Democratic Party seems to appeal more to the middle class and the poor, the Republican Party seems to attract better the attention of upper class citizens and the rich, which include the big corporations as a whole. While the Democrats would want to raise taxes in accordance with one’s income the Republicans would want to raise taxes “across the board.” Let us assume one makes $10,000 a year. If the tax cut across the board is 10% that means $1,000 is taken away from him and he is left with $9,000, not enough to make ends meet.
On the other hand, if one makes $10 million a year, $1 million will be taken away from him and he is left with $9 million leaving him still filthy rich without noticing the difference. The Democrats would simply not tax the poor anything while they tax the rich more adequately. While the Democratic Party seeks to put priority on the vital needs of the people, such as adequate health care and education, the Republican Party focuses on the manufacture and sales of weapons and the promotion of struggles and wars. Such wars are generally waged under the pretext of “national defence and security.”
In practice, such struggles and wars are waged to enable ultimately the U.S. big corporations, that financed their campaign, get what they want, namely, the exploitation of the resources of other nations. During the time of elections, these two major American political parties tend to adopt different strategies. While the Democrats tend to concentrate on the people and deal directly with them, the Republicans tend to concentrate on those few who, for one reason or another, have the ability to influence a variety of groups of people.
In doing so, Republican strategists study the strengths and weaknesses of this handful of people who are judged to be influential in swinging the votes of as many voters as possible. Of all possible groups, Republicans believe that, since the vast majority of Americans seem to attend some kind of church services on week ends, the clergymen become their target. They are convinced that once they bring these clergymen under their control, they could easily control the way people would be voting.
Republican strategists are fully aware that, since clergymen do tend to differ from each other, the best way to bring as many clergymen as possible under their thumb is to approach their superiors, commonly known as bishops. This is certainly a good strategy for Republicans to get what they ultimately want, that is, the vote of the people with their consequent election. Considering that the number of bishops is much smaller than the number of clergymen, it is much easier to control a small number than a very large number.
So far everything seems to be going well for Republican strategists to get Republicans elected, especially the U.S. President. Before they initiate their contacts with such clergymen’s superiors, they have to study and evaluate carefully their strengths and weaknesses. To their credit, the Republicans did succeed to find what may be termed to be the clergymen’s greatest weakness, which is described by one word only: abortion!
The Christian churches in the U.S.A. – Episcopalian, Lutheran, Catholic, Baptist, and Methodist in addition to others – all tend to view abortion as murder, which is a fact since a human life is aborted. Regretfully, abortion has become their obsession to the extent that they seem to forget all about the other nine commandments that God gave to Moses. Even so, the commandment that says: “You should not kill” seems to be applied by U.S. clergyman in general to mean: “You shall not kill the unborn.” What about the killing of those already born? What about lying to the people? What about the destruction of the property of others? Faced by such reality, US clergymen tend to remain silent!
During the time of presidential elections in the USA, several clergymen do not hesitate to raise their voice loud and clear warning their congregation members of their “obligation to vote for politicians who claim to be pro life and not pro choice.” That is what they did just one month prior to the election of President George W. Bush in 2005. Many churches distributed literature with the pictures of Bush and Kerry, the two presidential contenders, stating: “The choice is clear: Bush stands for life and Kerry stands for death!”
This formulated slogan was very misleading, very deceitful. In 2003 Bush invaded Iraq immorally and illegally against the Geneva Convention. He defied not only the United Nations but also Pope John Paul II who warned that “such a invasion would create animosity between Moslems and Christians and would create ground for terrorism which will end up in a quagmire.” Co-incidentally this saintly Pope proved to be very prophetic in his advice to Bush.
Disregarding integrity, human rights and social responsibility
Bush lied to the people with all the consequences that followed: the death of 5,000 young Americans in addition to the maiming of over 30,000 other young Americans. Besides, we have witnessed the destruction of the infrastructure of many Iraqi cities with the eventual massacre of over one million innocent people consisting mostly of women, children, the elderly and the sick. In addition to this, we have today 2 million Iraqis refugees who are now homeless and suffering immensely. The irony of this lies here:
The U.S. clergymen, mostly directed by their bishops, urged people to vote for Bush because, such clergymen insisted that “Bush respects life,” meaning the life of the unborn. But Bush to this day showed no respect for the life of the already born. When Colin Powell, Bush’s foreign secretary, was asked about the number of Iraqis that were killed, he answered crudely: “We do not keep count of that!” Not keeping count of the massacre of Iraqis? The churches were held responsible for the re-election of Bush and for everything negative he did.
In view of this, the clergymen that had encouraged people to vote for Bush should apologize to the American people and to the Iraqis as well. They should feel guilty for the tremendous massacre and sufferings that was inflicted on millions of Iraqis. Above all, they should ask God for forgiveness for being indirectly responsible for so much suffering and death that resulted from the Iraqi war. But U.S. clergymen in general are so obsessed with the problem of abortion that they become totally blind to all kinds of other sins and crimes committed for all practical purposes.
The hypocrisy of “pro-life” and pro-war Republicans and Democrats
Republican strategists will be doing the same over the few weeks preceding the election of the next U.S. president between John McCain and Barack Obama. They are going privately and secretly to warn clergymen especially their bishops, that “McCain is pro life and Obama is pro choice… that McCain wants to defend the life of the unborn while Obama would not care!” Of course, this is a blatant lie. In the first place, McCain wants the war to carry on and would not consider pulling the troops out of Iraq until 2013. In the meantime, more American soldiers and more Iraqi civilians would be massacred mercilessly.
Besides, Obama made it clear that he is against abortion and want to encourage prevention of pregnancies and adoption instead. He wants the family members and the clergymen to tell the woman what she should and should not do and not the government. If clergymen feel obligated to tell their congregation to vote for the self-proclaimed pro-life presidential candidate, such clergymen have the moral obligation to ask the congregation to vote for the presidential candidate who wants to solve crucial problems through a healthy diplomacy and not through wars. One cannot be pro life and pro war at the same time.
War Never Justified
Several months earlier, Pope Benedict XVI emerged to become the first Pope in modern history to say that “war is not justified under any circumstance whatsoever.” Based on the inspirational and wise statement of this good and holy Pope, all politicians of all nations who resort to war, rather than to healthy dialogues and strong diplomacy to solve problems, should be viewed as criminals. The clergymen of all churches should feel obligated to caution their congregation not to vote for them. Such politicians who claim to be pro life should be viewed as phoney, as “wolves in sheep’s clothing”.
In view of what has been stated, U.S. clergymen should open their eyes widely during the U.S. Presidential elections. They should not allow Republican strategists to literally squeeze their balls and bring them under their control. Besides, clergymen in the United States should study to see where Republicans put their priorities. Where do they try to put the bulk of federal money? Do they put it on the elimination of hunger and poverty, on providing homes for the homeless, on enabling the poor to have adequate health care and education?
Or do they put the bulk of federal money on the manufacture and indiscriminate sales of weapons to anyone that would give the right price? Do they put it for the promotion of struggles and wars, since the waging of wars has now developed into a high lucrative business? We need to keep in mind that in a business of this nature one may always likely to find mafia type of people involved in such transactions. And we know that the mafia has a reputation of being heartless and ruthless when it comes to get what it wants.
Last but not least, U.S. clergymen should keep in mind the words of the ‘Master Teacher’ of Nazareth: “The children of the world are wiser in their generation than the children of light.” This may explain the traditional saying that “the way to hell is paved with good intentions.”

Those of us involved in the emerging field of exopolitics attempt to make sense out of the huge body of evidence available to us involving extraterrestrial reality. I believe the stakes are very high for all of humanity that we collectively understand our situation relative to UFO/ET reality. Developing this situational awareness involves understanding the real reasons for 60 year old UFO/ET cover up even while we struggle to end it.
The pattern I see emerging which I think is reasonably accurate is that we can define two categories of extraterrestrials, colonizers and liberators, interacting with humanity that are the most important for us to understand. I have written previously that there are two very basic evolutionary strategies in nature competition and cooperation, and because we are part of nature our society is driven by these evolutionary forces.
Just as with the laws of physics I see no reason why these evolutionary laws do not apply to the whole of the universe. This logic is confirmed by the facts available to me involving extraterrestrial reality. Of course this is not a new idea but one that runs though religious texts from around the world.
What the religious texts seem to indicate is that there has been a longstanding attempt by less ethical predatory colonizing extraterrestrials to take over this planet that are being resisted and thwarted by more ethical cooperative extraterrestrial races.
