"A 1997 Gallup poll revealed that 42% of col­lege grad­u­ates in the United States believed that the earth had been vis­ited by extrater­res­tri­als. This astound­ing sta­tis­tic under­scores the polit­i­cal impor­tance of the UFO phe­nom­e­non, a sub­ject gen­er­ally regarded as the province of either fic­tion or psy­chopathol­ogy. This lec­ture addresses some of the salient polit­i­cal aspects of the sub­ject. The con­cept of sal­va­tion from above by a supe­rior power or entity is a pow­er­ful ele­ment of the mythol­ogy, folk­lore and belief sys­tems of many cul­tures and reli­gions. It is also a notion that can have par­tic­u­larly strong appeal in a time of dire social and polit­i­cal crisis.
Cen­tral to the dis­cus­sion is an analy­sis of the polit­i­cal phi­los­o­phy espoused and prac­ticed by some of the “UFO con­tactee” cults. Pro­fess­ing a vari­ety of beliefs about aliens, these cults hold in com­mon a belief in extrater­res­tri­als, a belief in the intel­lec­tual and sci­en­tific supe­ri­or­ity of those “ETs” and (in many cases) advo­cacy of the gov­ern­ing of human affairs on earth by “our broth­ers from space.” These cults are infil­trated by the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity, which devotes con­sid­er­able atten­tion to such groups. It is note­wor­thy that the sys­tem of gov­ern­ment selected (pre­sum­ably) by our space bretheren is essen­tially a total­i­tar­ian and fascis­tic one. The pos­si­bil­ity of the polit­i­cal manip­u­la­tion of the UFO phe­nom­e­non in order to bring about fas­cism is one that should not be too read­ily cast aside.
It is sig­nif­i­cant in this con­text that the ET myth orig­i­nates to a con­sid­er­able extent from ele­ments asso­ci­ated with the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity and a milieu that includes promi­nent Amer­i­can fas­cists such as William Dud­ley Pelley.
The human propen­sity to believe in UFOs as indi­cat­ing the pres­ence of ETs takes on an added sig­nif­i­cance when con­sid­ered in light of the con­sid­er­able evi­dence indi­cat­ing that the “fly­ing saucers” of pop­u­lar imag­i­na­tion are real, but have a ter­res­trial ori­gin. Mr. Emory presents evi­dence that the machines have their gen­e­sis in the clos­ing phase of the Sec­ond World War, when the Ger­mans devel­oped disk-shaped, high-performance fly­ing machines as anti-aircraft devices. The devices appear to have been improved upon by the United States and Britain in the post-war period. In 1955, the Sec­re­tary of the Air Force announced that the United States would soon begin test­ing and fly­ing new types of air­craft that would resem­ble fly­ing saucers.
In the con­clu­sion of the lec­ture, Mr. Emory warns that UFOs might be deployed in con­junc­tion with other secret tech­nolo­gies such as mind-control and/or genetic-engineering. He describes a hypo­thet­i­cal sce­nario described as “a com­bi­na­tion of Orson Welles’ ‘War of the Worlds’ broad­cast, the Mir­a­cle of Fatima and Pearl Harbor!”
