Skip to comments.Drezner: You all need to adjust to the fact that UFOs exist
Posted on 05/30/2019 3:32:57 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
You can add another voice from the media and education community to the growing list of military and government figures who are now talking about the potential realities of UFOs, no matter where theyre actually coming from. Daniel Drezner, a writer for the Washington Post, as well as a professor at Tufts University, tosses another log on the fire this week with a provocative proclamation. According to Drezner, weve hit the point where everyone needs to get used to the idea that we have things flitting around in our airspace that we cant yet explain. He then dangles the bait many have been waiting for, asking how much longer it will be before we have to consider the unimaginable as the only logical conclusion.
What appears to be happening is that official organs of the state are now acknowledging that UFOs exist, even if they are not literally using the term. They are doing so because enough pilots are reporting UFOs and near-air collisions so as to warrant better record-keeping. They are not saying that these UFOs are extraterrestrials, but they are trying to destigmatize the reporting of a UFO.The first notable thing about this article is that its coming from someone of Drezners standing and being published as a serious opinion piece in the Washington Post without any of the trappings of comedic disdain normally accorded the subject. As I mentioned when discussing the most recent Navy pilot reports, it was not at all that long ago when speaking or writing openly about such things would end your career. If Drezner had published this piece as little as two years ago it could have spelled the sunset of his academic career and his invitation to write at prominent newspapers
Still, the very fact that this step has been taken somewhat weakens the Wendt and Duvall thesis ("Sovereignty and the UFO" by Alexander Wendt--Ohio State--and Raymond Duvall--Univ Minnesota). This was always a two-step process: (a) Acknowledge that UFOs exist; and (b) Consider that the UFOs might be ETs.
In recent years, the U.S. national security bureaucracy has met the first criterion. What happens to our understanding of the universe if great powers meet that second one?

Step #1) Admit you have a problem.
what’s “unimaginable “ about it?
There are many people--and a few Freepers--who resist reality. I guess they are scared of it.
Some of those resistant types will start showing up on this thread shortly.;-)
The acceptance of the rule is why a lot of recovered/recovering alcoholics and drug addicts are among the most sane humans alive.
There is, however, a third point of view that usually produces a baffling response: when the members of the binary crowd hear it, they start treating you like a wacko. Really?
So, here goes...
I like that. We have been warned about that for more than a few years (like 3000+)
And even atheist Whitley Strieber (in "Communion") came to the immediate conclusion that ET's are demonic and absolutely malevolent.
In situations like this, I find Occam’s Razor to be a useful tool.
IIRC in one of Phil Schneiders videos He states that 2019/20 would be Disclosing of the UFO/ET to the Public.
I dont know which of His many videos it was anymore as I spent a week watching a bunch of them.
Completely out of my control, so I live my life every day as if... well, I live my life every day.
(Gotta watch “Earth vs. the Flying Saucers” again. Great flick. We win.)
Supposedly there are like as many a 57 or so different ETs and some are 4th and 5th dimensional, some want to help save the Human Race, others not so much . Think Lab Rats...
Its too bad Jesse Marcel Jr is no longer here on Earth and FR. I would be interested in His take on all this now, RIP Sir.
Not to push Carl Sagan, but he did surmise that the distances were far to great. Interdimentional makes more sense even if it is harder to grasp
Thus, if an alien was traveling at light speed then hitting a tiny speck of something could be tragic. Compound that potential across scores of light years and, with our current technology, light speed travel is almost impossible. There has GOT to be a bit of rock somewhere between here and there, and if you hit it then KABLOOIE!!
For all the bravery of the writer, he didn’t say much. He uses the term “UFO”. That says there is something unidentified. I hear a strange sound in the night. It’s unidentified. At least until I discover in the morning that the cat knocked a glass off an end table.
We have not really explained why there are strange lights and even glowing orbs that are sometimes seen just before or during earthquakes. Despite the arrogance of so-called “climate scientists,” there are vast areas of everyday occurrences we still don’t understand.
The problem is we dont know what we dont know. Concluding that space travel from the stars is unlikely because of the great distances involved reminds me of the 19th Century scientists who opined that the Sun was less than 5,000 years old because thats how long a lump of coal that size could burn. Of course, they new nothing of nuclear physics and coal was the only source of combustion they could imagine which might fuel the Sun.
