There are two fundamental bases for opposing the Disclosure
process. One is simple to assess - the ETH is false and there
is nothing to disclosure worth such an effort. The second is
anything but simple - the full story attached to the ET presence
is too dangerous to reveal.

Many years ago I talked with the producers of Coast to Coast AM
with Art Bell about doing an "awful truths" show and run down
the top ten awful truth scenarios in play. They liked the idea
but for some reason or another the show didn't happen.

A proper response is a very lengthy essay, but boiled down it
comes to this: each person who now accepts the ETH as fact has
to make a personal decision as to whether the truth embargo is
or is not now in their, the nation's or the world's best
interest to maintain.  Unfortunately the very nature of a truth
embargo prevents having all the needed information to make an
appropriately informed decision. So you do the best you can
with what you know.

I have considered the actions and policies of governments in the
past, particularly the last hundred years; the manner in which
the truth embargo was conducted; the changes that have taken
place in the societies of developed and not so developed
nations; and perhaps most importantly, what we have learned
about the ET presence from the information we do have. My
personal decision is we can no longer give government the
benefit of the doubt in this matter.

There has never been an activist movement that could not be
challenged as to its merits with reasoned argument. Civil
rights, independence, suffrage, anti-war (peace), and religious
freedom movements were all challenged as being a mistake.
Upsetting the status quo was always one of the arguments put
forward.

Finally, history has clearly shown us something very important.
Life is difficult and dangerous, yes, but institutional lying
and misrepresentation of reality has always taken the human
story to bad outcomes. Knowing the true nature of things does
not guarantee a good outcome, it is just the best path we have
to achieving one.
