I think that we’re heading to some form of disclosure, unless something happens that really shifts the political agenda (new pandemic or war).
But the spectrum of disclosure is big aswel, it could be ‘we know there are things that aren’t from earth, and that’s it’, to ‘yes we’ve been back engineering stuff for decades’.
I think that both the political and scientific attention given to this subject is way too much that it won’t just fade away as being nothing. The ‘controlled disclosure campaign’ is really something else and it’s legislation.
I’m partly intrigued by the anthropology of it. Some minds want to be blown. But the same thing that will blow some minds is also the same thing that many would respond with, “So what, Man United is gonna lose this weekend.”
