The future of our civilization rests on our developing an
enlightened extraterrestrial policy along the lines of the Hawaii
Declaration. The Hawaii Declaration was the work of a group of
concerned citizens that met for a conference in Hawaii in 2006.
believe this declaration should serve as a model for enlightened
national and international extraterrestrial policy.

The present unenlightened extraterrestrial policy is a policy
created by elite autocrats to further their own special interests
all the while causing great harm to society as a whole. The present
unenlightened policy favors dangerous autocratic alliances with less
ethical ET races and disfavors constructive and beneficial alliances
with more ethical ET races.
The only way we can get an enlightened policy is to have a policy
devised by the people for the people. This will only be possible if
there is full and open disclosure of what is known about
extraterrestrial reality. As long as policy is driven by elite
autocrats operating in extreme secrecy and under the harshest of
security procedures, policy will remain unenlightened, fragmented
and destructive to society as a whole.
When we have entrenched special interests looking out for their own
interests making decisions for the rest of us we all loose. Over the
past 60 years elite autocrats have justified and rationalized their
control over societal extraterrestrial policy as exemplified in
Brookings Institution document. This document is nothing more than
one of many deceptions perpetrated upon the unsuspecting public in
regards to extraterrestrial reality by elite autocrats protecting
their special interests.
The truth is that people are generally selfish by nature and when a
few create policy they cannot help but look out for their own
interests first and society second. Critical to the shaping of
policy by the few is control of information to the many. The
founding fathers of America knew that the few could not be trusted
to use power or information in the interest of the public.
why Thomas Jefferson said,
"I know of no better repository of the
truth than with the people."
Jefferson and the other founding father
knew that democracy could not function if information and truth were
withheld from the public no matter what the rationale.
Our civilization is obviously no longer in extraterrestrial
quarantine as evidenced by the huge upsurge in extraterrestrial
activity on and about our planet since the late 1940s. Our
civilization has been put into play and now is being fundamentally
impacted by a great diversity of advanced extraterrestrial races.
The only way we as a people can make the right decisions to
correctly shape our future is if we have all the information
possible to make those decisions.
Because things are really coming to a head and because of
unenlightened extraterrestrial policy we are all in great danger of
exploitation and colonization by unethical ET races. The way things
now stand is that this unenlightened autocratic ET policy had
created the conditions best suited for exploitation and colonization
of our civilization. This is why I advocate immediate release of all
extraterrestrial related information. There are those autocrats that
would argue that this would be catastrophic to society and they are
both right and wrong.
What the autocrats say is only a partial truth, a lie. The whole
truth is that things can get far worse than catastrophic if the
information is not immediately released. Under a continued
unenlightened ET policy we face he immediate danger of colonization.
I would argue that it is much better for our society to have
catastrophic renewal and remain an independent civilization than
proceed down the road to colonization any further.
Should disclosure rapidly occur even if catastrophic, we as a
society have the option at least to create an enlightened ET policy.
A policy that will disfavor less ethical ET interactions and
colonization in favor of more ethical ET interactions that will
allow for continued independence.
There are those who ask where are the ethical extraterrestrials, why
won't they openly interact with us?
My answer to that question is
that under present conditions circumstances do not favor open
interactions with ethical extraterrestrial races. The ethical races
are being excluded from open formal negotiations and interactions
because of the current unethical super-secret, hostile, deceptive
climate that prevails in regards to extraterrestrial reality.
I believe that if we collectively create an enlightened ET policy
the ethical races will openly and formally appear in great numbers
forcing an end to the creeping covert infiltration and colonization
of our society by less ethical races.
If we collectively fashion an
enlightened policy they will come.
