The imaginary conspiracy against the UFO-ET meme, is more than important for those interested in saving this myth.
More, the ET-UFO mythology is not possible without the “Shadow Government” that presumably fights against the truth defended by people like Basiago, Webre, Salla, Boylan, Greer, etc.
Since Time is always against the Exofantasists, ( The Nothing Happens Situation,)they must convince the true-believers that Alien Crafts are here, and will give us the big show in any moment.
Of course, this never happens, and the mythologists make the Conspiracy responsible for all the evils.
This “cabal” controls governments in the whole planet, and also the complete scientific establishment.
Besides, these “enemies of truth” have weapons capable of destroying alien crafts.
That is why the best friend of the ET fantasists is the Cabal.
This scheme however, is fragile and even pathetic. It’s a dying meme.
If the Exopundits want to keep their curio- shop open, they will need to turn the alienological meme into a Religious Mystery, a dogma. Those who proclaim themselves Councilors or selected Contactees will speak in the name of Star Visitors forced to remain invisibility for the evil Cabal.
Perhaps some of these selected prophets will be able to keep some faithful followers in their sects.
