Aliens, the Next Fear-Based Meme?
By Staff News & Analysis - May 31, 2010

Don't talk to aliens, warns Stephen Hawking … THE aliens are out there and Earth had better watch out, at least according to Stephen Hawking. He has suggested that extraterrestrials are almost certain to exist — but that instead of seeking them out, humanity should be doing all it that can to avoid any contact. The suggestions come in a new documentary series in which Hawking, one of the world's leading scientists, will set out his latest thinking on some of the universe's greatest mysteries. Alien life, he will suggest, is almost certain to exist in many other parts of the universe: not just in planets, but perhaps in the centre of stars or even floating in interplanetary space. Hawking's logic on aliens is, for him, unusually simple. The universe, he points out, has 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of millions of stars. In such a big place, Earth is unlikely to be the only planet where life has evolved. – London Times Online

Dominant Social Theme: They are coming and we must be prepared. Maybe they're already here!

Free-Market Analysis: We mentioned in a previous article how the promotion of various themes in conjunction with a Western, Anglo-American power elite made even a normal discussion of an intergenerational elite difficult if not impossible. One was immediately sucked into "conspiracy theories." In discussing the promotion of "evil Jews" we mentioned two other dominant social themes: secret societies (the Illuminati) and space aliens.

Web sites and individuals espousing the idea that the problems of the planet can be laid to rest entirely at the feet of Israel and Jews in general help bring the idea of a power elite itself into some disrepute – and make analytical conversation more difficult. Another dominant social theme is the Iluminati. This theme is promoted in numerous ways – books, movies and Internet sites – and mortally intermingles power elite strategies with secret societies. So intermingled has the theme become that sorting out one from another becomes almost impossible.

As regards space aliens, we saw the same sort of promotion at work. But what has brought us back to these manipulations and to aliens in particular is Stephen Hawking's statements that have set the world of the alternative Internet media to buzzing. An article making the rounds currently — an offshoot of the Hawking's statements – comes from Henry Makow's famous alternative news website. (Makow is apparently the inventor of the famous Scruples board game.) The article, published in late May claimed that the elite had in mind creating an alien threat as a way of promoting one-world government. Here's an excerpt from the article, based on the testimony of one Carol Rosin:

Von Braun: Illuminati Plan For E.T. Deception … Dr. Wernher von Braun, the head of the Nazi rocket program, was brought to America after the war because our government considered his knowledge and expertise too vital to fall into enemy hands. Dr. von Braun brought a wealth of information gleaned from other top Nazi scientists like his boss, SS General Hans Kammler. Von Braun was privy to work on anti gravity propulsion vehicles. With access to NASA's secret programs, von Braun apparently began to see the "big picture" regarding the true goals of America's space program and how the military- industrial complex was manipulating it according to a secret, hidden agenda.

Dr. Carol Rosin was an industry executive when she first met Dr. Wernher von Braun in February 1974. At this time, before his death in 1977, von Braun confided to Dr. Rosin NASA's hidden agenda. Inviting her into his office, Von Braun stunned Dr. Rosin by explaining that it was all leading to planetary control under an oppressive One World Government. According to Rosin, von Braun then gave her one supreme assignment: He said a secretive trans-national power, already in existence, would move to permanently take control of this planet thru a hoaxed alien invasion from outer space.

According to von Braun, space based weapons, later known as the "Star Wars" program, were to be promoted as a "shield" against the Russians. Then, as a defense against 'rogue' nations. Then, as protection against asteroids and meteors. Finally they would be presented as a safeguard against an extraterrestrial threat. According to von Braun, all of these rationales would be lies. These space based weapons would be useless against nuclear suitcase bombs available even in 1974, as well as chemical, viral, bacterial and biological terror weapons.

As a matter of fact, it turns out that Rosin may have a connection to the "Disclosure Project" which according to Wikipedia, "is an organization … that alleges the existence of a US government cover-up of information relating to unidentified flying objects (UFOs). The Project has adopted Greer's contention that UFOs are spacecraft piloted by intelligent extraterrestrial life, and that the United States government is keeping this secret. Greer also uses the project to disseminate his beliefs that the government has concealed advanced energy technologies obtained from the extraterrestrials by suppressing and hiding them in top secret 'black projects' in order not to upset the global geo-political power and energy-sector financial status-quo and its oil industry 'special interests.' "

We can see from the above explanation (as well as feedback responses to Rosin's claims) that the idea of disclosing von Braun's "secret" instructions is one method of creating credibility that allows her then to promote her true agenda – which is to support in one way or another the "Disclosure Project" meme. Perhaps it all sounds unduly complicated. But as skilled power elite meme watchers we have little doubt that the "aliens are coming" or the "aliens are among us" is yet another fear-based promotion that the elite has cultivated over the years.

Sound crazy? Whoever would have thought that the world's major Western governments would have insisted on labeling carbon dioxide a pollutant in order to literally propose a tax on breathing (and thrown in cow farts besides)? Another point we would make regarding the seriousness of this meme and the money behind it is that one of the Rockefeller brothers set up a sizable bequest (as much as US$200 million we have read previously) to study UFOs back in the late 20th century. In fact, it was this bequest – and the think tank it set up – that helped kick-start the current space alien promotion, so far as we can tell.

In later life, Rockefeller became interested in UFOs. In 1993, along with his niece, Anne Bartley, the stepdaughter of Winthrop Rockefeller and the then-president of the Rockefeller Family Fund, he established the UFO Disclosure Initiative to the Clinton White House. They asked for all UFO information held by the government, including from the CIA and the US Air Force, to be declassified and released to the public. The first and most important test case where declassification had to apply, according to Rockefeller, was the Roswell UFO incident. In September 1994, the Air Force categorically denied the incident was UFO-related. Rockefeller briefed Clinton on the results of his initiative in 1995. Clinton did produce an Executive Order in late 1994 to declassify numerous documents in the National Archives, but this did not specifically refer to UFO-related files. (- Wikipedia)

At this point, we would put nothing past the power elite when it comes to fear-based promotions. The global warming promotion was amazingly audacious, and we have no illusion that the elite has ceased to flog it. While we haven't dealt with it specifically in this article, the "aliens-are-among us meme" has a strong "green" element to it, with a good deal of conversation about how "good" alien technology would offer the world "free" and "clean" energy, end war, promote peaceable relations among all races and nations, etc. etc.

After Thoughts

We couldn't help but be struck by the analysis that Hawking put forth in his commentary about aliens and the dangers of contact. According to the Times, "He suggests that aliens might simply raid Earth for its resources and then move on." This so happens to be the plot-line of the famous Hollywood blockbuster movie Independence Day, when the US President himself leads a squadron of jet fighters into the sky to shoot down alien flying saucers on the way to a rousing victory over evil galactic predators. Stephen Hawking, at the end of a life both sad and triumphant, has given us yet another gift. Knowingly or not, he has seamlessly fused Hollywood hype with high-powered academic physics in support of yet another elite fear-based promotion. You can't make this stuff up.
