I first became suspicious of this when he appeared on "The Day After Roswell" episode of the UFO Files about eight to ten years ago. He seemed to be using some of the tactics that he complains about skeptics using against him; and even though I agree that both Philip Corso and Bob Lazar have their credibility problems, if the U.S. Government really did retrieve alien technology, as even Stanton Friedman seems to believe, then it would be inevitable that they try to research the technology and replicate what they can.
Yet Stanton Friedman doesn't do much if anything, that I know of, to explore what kind of progress they might have achieved in reverse engineering.
This doesn't seem to make any sense at all.
(A briefer version of this was originally posted at Above Top Secret but additional commentary has been added here.)
A good UFO researcher has to be a rational skeptic.
A good rational skeptic follows the evidence, whether it confirms existing beliefs or challenges them; however thorough scrutiny is advisable before coming to conclusions.
However it does fit in with what I call the "Recruit a group of crackpots" (re posted below) hypothesis which I posted years ago, and I'm sure it is similar to others theories as well. I explored this more in my most recent post UFO Hypothesis with what I consider a rational use of Occam's Razor.
Stanton Friedman may have provided some of the back ground for this hypothesis with his well known MJ-12 documents where they included one pseudo-skeptic, Donald Menzel and one UFO researcher Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter. This implies a possible pattern of behavior that would make sense if they wanted to control disclosure from both sides of the debate. If this was a beginning of a pattern then it would make sense to have the leading spokesperson for UFO research on their side if possible. they could give him an enormous advantage if they have control of the media which is increasingly likely with the consolidation of the media.
Also if the claims by Philip Corso are partly true and a large portion of rapidly developing technology is a result of tacit or intentional help from aliens then they must have anticipated that there would be some evidence and the more control of the debate they have the more effective they can make it seem unlikely at least to the masses that aren't paying attention.
If this is the case then a lot of other researchers that go along with the program might also be influenced by the CIA as well including Michael Shermer, who is obvious to some of us, and clowns making an enormous amount of mistakes that get coverage and make the UFO subject seem absurd.
Most conspiracy theories are often portrayed as fringe because so many of them are full of obvious blunders; however there are an enormous amount of ones that don't have these obvious blunders and in many cases the government comes out with releases of classified documents that admit to them. But they're released quietly and quickly forgotten by the MSM. This goes back to the Contactee movement of the fifties, which many people believe were propped up by the CIA to make UFOs seem fringe. If they were propped up By the CIA, as some believe, it may be more likely that they helped draw attention to quacks that were coming up with absurd stories than that they created them.
This is why I think it is helpful to organize some of the most basic facts about legitimate unsolved mysteries, since some of the conspiracy theories will inevitably fall through. When absurd theories are often proved false there are still legitimate unsolved mysteries like how they moved massive megaliths thousands of years ago, when experiments to replicate them failed or why so many people have seen things they can't explain, including pilots that have often tried to shoot them down. Even if there are no alien visitations it should concern people if the military if trying to shoot down figments of their imagination or weather balloons.
I reviewed some of those including massive megaliths that couldn't be moved with experiments in 107 Wonders of the Ancient World and Why so few arrests for Crop Circles makers? Is there microwave evidence?
Also another obvious implication is that if the CIA would be monitoring these conspiracy theory boards. That should be obvious to most here. and they would almost certainly, at a minimum have commentators on them. If possible they would even want to have influence, one way or another, with some of the moderators.
Not that I would expect confirmation or denial on that, but I can't believe I'm the only one speculating on it or even the first one to mention the possibility.
At the time I originally posted this hypothesis, I was vaguely aware that William Cooper had also claimed that Stanton Friedman, and as it turns out many other UFO researchers, were working for the CIA, however I did not attempt to cite him as a source since I didn't consider him reliable, and for the most part still don't. However, it may turn out to be relevant and his name did come up when I previously Posted the "Recruit a group of crackpots" hypothesis, which I'll re-post here, to see original discussion see "Recruit a group of crackpots" hypothesis:
"Recruit a group of crackpots" MJ-12
Some of you may recognize the line "Recruit a group of crackpots" from Roswell staring Martin Sheen.
This was a fictionalized version of Roswell but it appears as if it may involve more truth than most people suspect although that is speculation as is much of the information about UFOs.
They go on to discuss how they could leak information through unreliable sources. "Leaks won't necessarily be bad as long as we control the way they are leaked." Once the information comes from an unreliable source they can ridicule the source and by association all the information associated with the source. If this was put into action it could explain far fetched authors that make a large amount of obvious mistakes but address some things that the orthodox scholars ignore. As some have also speculated about it could also explain the contactee movement of the fifties and sixties.
The alleged members of MJ-12 include Donald Menzel dominant skeptic of his time who used ridicule and distraction techniques to debunk UFOs and Admiral Hillenkoetter board member of NICAP. This could be the beginning of a pattern of behavior. They could have gone on to continue putting people in high places on both sides of the issue or where ever they are needed to control the way UFOs are discussed.
Most if not all of the high profile experts about UFOs seem to make at least a few obvious and simple mistakes that never should make it into books or shows that have been proof read. Many of them make a lot of foolish mistakes.
Intentional or not this leads to a lot of confusion. One of the biggest problems is lack of organization. One of the most obvious cases is the Condon Report (to read a free online copy click here) which is very badly organized as many including Allen Hynek have pointed out. Among people that have taken the time to read it many including myself have come to the conclusion that it shows evidence for a major unsolved mystery. If there are no UFOs as Condon claims why are there so many pilots chasing stars, planets, weather balloons etc.
One thing that I can be sure of there is a lot of contradictory information about UFOs and much of it is so obvious that it virtually guarantees that there is an effort to confuse the issue by many people. Either people reporting UFOs or those "debunking" them or I suspect more likely both.
Whether MJ-12 (or some thing doing the same job with a different name) exists or not If you want to figure out what is going on with UFOs right now you have to look at a lot of information from a lot of different sources and you can't trust much if any of it completely without verification.
Whether the government is hiding something about UFOs or not it is not being open about many subjects especially under G. W. Bush. the government needs to be held accountable which is why I also started a string to discuss Election Reform.
Whether you want to know more about UFOs or any other thing involving the government it would be much easier to find out if we had an open honest government. .....
If this group exist as I suspect they do they are essentially conducting a controlled disclosure conspiracy.
One of the tactics MJ-12 might use to confuse the issue (assuming that is what they want to do) is to put disinformation in books that they have influence over. This could be referred to as kind of a poison pill. In many cases it is a very obvious mistake or something that can easily be dis proven. this wouldn't necessarily be limited to UFO information.
An example of a poison pill would be if they put something like a claim by someone who built a seismograph in his garage that can detect earthquakes worldwide, or an astronaut who claims to have seen a tractor trailer from space with the naked eye. Or in a case unrelated to UFOs an author might claim that there was a problem with the air conditioning because the CIA couldn't tell the air conditioning guy how many people would be in the building. If there are logical flaws to these examples as I believe there are then they would raise doubts about the authors who wrote them. This could raise doubts about whole books that included these flaws. For this reason it is important to sort through information about UFOs carefully without taking them as a package deal. These books also have many more credible parts of the story but if the authors have credibility problems the credible portions need to be confirmed. In some cases there is plenty of confirmation which indicates it is probably true. In other cases there may not be sufficient confirmation in which case it may be better to look at it as a hypothetical.
The internet could be used by many people to share information about UFOs and they know it. If they want to control the way information is leaked on line that is incredibly easy. All they have to do is start a troll patrol. This troll patrol would search for message boards and chat rooms and try to bait people and pick fights with them. In many cases it is very easy to do this. If sincere people start arguing with the trolls the trolls win. Once it turns into a argument full of name calling it looks like a bunch of fools and there is little or no chance of exchanging rational ideas. The circumstantial evidence of this can be seen at just about any message board that discusses UFOs. Once the conversation becomes productive the trolls come in and you know what happens. They would try to find ways to avoiding being to obvious though.
This is a good reason why people should ignore trolls instead of arguing with them. If people don't allow themselves to be drawn in and the trolls keep baiting them it will be to obvious and they will usually stop.
When I first posted this someone responded by saying "'Recruit Crackpots' would explain some things like William Cooper." My response at the time was, "this is the first I heard of Cooper but a quick look at Wikipedia (Milton William Cooper) indicates he might fit the theory," however that wasn't quite true, although I didn't remember it at the time, I had heard of him but ignored the first couple encounters I had with his work since I didn't think it appeared credible. I read Jacques Vallee who wrote about his meeting with him and presented him as highly unreliable, and I had briefly glanced at his book "Behold a Pale Horse," initially declined to read it because it seemed to have so many credibility problems.
I still don't think he had credibility, when he was still alive, and as I have said in the past, when information comes from an unreliable source it shouldn't be trusted unless it can be confirmed independently; however it shouldn't be completely dismissed unless it can be refuted, although it shouldn't be considered important without corroboration.
I have read his book since then and found that the vast majority of it is seriously flawed; however some of it made a lot of sense. It is hard to imagine why a rational person that could make good arguments some of the time could be so farfetched and absurd other times; however that is routine when dealing with researchers or conspiracy theorists involved in the UFO subject, which is why I consider the "crackpot hypothesis" worth consideration. The following is the excerpt where he claims that Stanton Friedman and several other well known people involved in UFO research might be working for the CIA although he came to his conclusions for different reasons that I:
I'm familiar with a few of these names which I suspect he may have been right or close to the truth about. I can't rule out the possibility that Dr. J. Allen Hynek might have had connections to the CIA; but he is one of the rare UFO researchers that makes few obvious blunders, or at least if you exclude the ones he made before he came out and admitted that he couldn't explain a large number of the sightings the Air Force was pressuring him to explain away. It seems unlikely that he was actively trying to deceive the public. However there are few if any high profile researchers, either skeptics or believers since he died that received much if any media attention that don't make lots of blunders that they almost certainly should have caught.
A couple credible quotes from his Wikipedia page include, "Ridicule is not part of the scientific method, and people should not be taught that it is. The steady flow of reports, often made in concert by reliable observers, raises questions of scientific obligation and responsibility. Is there ... any residue that is worthy of scientific attention? Or, if there isn't, does not an obligation exist to say so to the public—not in words of open ridicule but seriously, to keep faith with the trust the public places in science and scientists?" And when asked about his change of opinion he said, "Two things, really. One was the completely negative and unyielding attitude of the Air Force. They wouldn't give UFOs the chance of existing, even if they were flying up and down the street in broad daylight. Everything had to have an explanation. I began to resent that, even though I basically felt the same way, because I still thought they weren't going about it in the right way. You can't assume that everything is black no matter what. Secondly, the caliber of the witnesses began to trouble me. Quite a few instances were reported by military pilots, for example, and I knew them to be fairly well-trained, so this is when I first began to think that, well, maybe there was something to all this."
This doesn't mean that Hynek believed in many of far-fetched claims about warp drive, wormholes, or that he accepted the often flawed claims about Alien Abduction, although he did admit that there might be something to some of them even if there are flaws that need to be worked out.
Philip Klass is far more believable, since his alleged efforts to debunk UFOs often involved taking temper tantrums or using ridicule, which as Hynek said is highly unscientific. Klass even seems to have taken a temper tantrum when discussing Hynek in one of his books saying that he changed sides and treated him like a traitor instead of trying to address the issues. Klass has also been known to recommend that evidence that he disagrees with should be simply thrown in the rubbish. He was often a lot like Zahi Hawass when confronted with things he couldn't explain; instead of admitting that there was an unsolved mystery they both often take temper tantrums, which is highly unscientific. One of his temper tantrums was during one of his planned debates and Zahi Hawass Storms out of Debate with Graham Hancock before it Begins, additional details here. Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval both have many problems with their theories; however there are some unexplained mysteries that Zahi Hawass can't explain and instead of addressing them or at least admitting that he can't explain all the details he takes temper tantrums like this to avoid inconvenient facts.
Appeals to emotions is one of the things that Stanton Friedman has criticized about some of the worst pseudo-skeptics; however, even though he doesn't make his own appeals to emotions as often he does the same thing on some occasions. One of those occasions is when he angrily said that William Cooper was lying about him working for the CIA.
Like Stanton Friedman, Linda Moulton Howe, also often makes very logical arguments when it suits her purposes indicating that she is very credible and can figure relatively simple things; but then on occasions simply declines to acknowledge serious flaws in her claims, including a common belief about the possibility of benevolent aliens. She's most well known for her research into Cattle Mutilations going back to the seventies. These mutilations were never explained and haven't ended; however, for the most part, the traditional media stopped reporting on them, giving the public that isn't familiar with alternative media the impression that they may have ended, or, in most cases, they stopped thinking about them at all.
Stanton Friedman, Linda Moulton Howe and many other researchers often try to make the argument for a benevolent alien hypotheses; however they fail to consider one of the most obvious things that benevolent aliens would do if this were the case.
They would communicate!
This is especially true if they were involved, one way or another in the moving of massive megaliths thousands of years ago, implying that they had some impact on the development of our early civilization.
As I have pointed out numerous times, including in "God's Not Dead" But Is He Nice? if an unknown advanced intelligence of some sort, whether you call it God or an advanced alien intelligence was looking out for the best interest of humanity they wouldn't do it in "Mysterious," or more accurately deceptive, ways. In the case of the Christian, Jewish or Muslim God, this is indicated by their own holy books. One of the simplest examples, as pointed out in the article about “God not being dead,” is Exodus 14:4 where the Bible says that the reason Pharaoh didn’t obey was because God made him obstinate or stubborn, and God used this as an excuse to terrorize the entire Egyptian population; and in Mathew 10:34-7 where Jesus says, “it is not peace I have come to bring, but a sword,” and goes on to say that if they don’t love Jesus or God more than they love their own family members. This is not the behavior of a benevolent God, but of a cult leader.
Of course this is based on the assumption that the Bible is the literal truth; however if it wasn’t and it was inspired by an unknown advanced intelligence, that religious people refer to as God, or that some theorists now believe might be aliens of some sort, then God or the aliens, would have made a point of letting the human race know that this isn’t what they meant once they saw that civilizations were fighting massive wars based on the beliefs handed to them from their religious leaders.
A benevolent God or aliens simply wouldn’t abandon the human race after influencing the creation of all these ancient wonders, and perhaps their religious beliefs if they were primarily interested in providing guidance that helps us.
At times there have been many people that have argued that the public can’t handle the truth; however more often than not, this isn’t presented in a high profile manner. If it was it wouldn’t be likely to hold up very well, for one simple reason.
If they were concerned about the public’s ability to handle the truth and really didn’t believe that they could the obvious thing to do would be to prepare them so eventually they could handle the truth as soon as possible and there is no way that a massive charade would do that.
Furthermore, if they didn’t think all people could handle the truth they would present it to as many people as could and ask them to help prepare the rest of the public.
That isn’t what is going on at all.
If there was an open debate accepting diverse views from many different people then these ideas and many more would be discussed and when researchers encountered obvious problems with their beliefs about benevolent God or Aliens they would correct them eventually. But this doesn’t happen in UFO research or many other fields including economics, health care or foreign policy, where people with ulterior motives are controlling the debate.
This is a basic well accepted principle within the scientific community, or at least they claim that it is well accepted and often make statements supporting principles like this.
When some of the most notable scientists make good statements about the scientific process and then don't follow them, then it's up to us to use our own discretion.
However many of the so-called leaders of the scientific community often ignore this in practice or endorse pseudo-skeptics that have an incredibly long history of ignoring basic scientific methods, like Michael Shermer, who as I pointed out in several articles including Mind of the Market: Is Michael Shermer a Skeptic? Scam artist? or Idiot? has a history of repeatedly making incredibly unscientific arguments including claims that “Markets are Moral” and defending a charity as an example of this in his book while it was simultaneously being exposed as a fraud. My article about that doesn’t even cite the expose as the strongest evidence to discredit this charity; instead if points out the obvious flaws about spending money to collect money, ensuring that a large portion of the money given to charities collected with the help of high priced ads goes to waste.
This is something that any person using scientific methods can easily figure out, yet Michael Shermer simply declines to do so and he makes many other similar blunders, yet some of the most well know scientists, including Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins, cite him as an example of scientific leader.
Yet many of the most obvious motives that aliens might have are rarely discussed by either UFO researchers or skeptics, including Stanton Friedman or Linda Moulton Howe, who claims she believe that there are aliens and some of them are looking out for our best interests while others are trying to sabotage them, in a variation of the good versus evil beliefs often adopted by most religions.
If this were the case then the ones that were good, assuming they exist would simply communicate and warn us about the evil ones.
Surprisingly, Stanton Friedman now seems to be acknowledging that governments would seek to reverse engineers alien technology and argues that they would want to “quarantine us” because they consider us “evil," without acknowledging several obvious flaws in the following article:
Stanton Friedman is, of course right that if they wanted to communicate they could have, but that would go back to when they first arrived, possibly thousands of years ago.
If they were concerned about “quarantining us” because we’re “evil” wouldn’t the obvious thing to do be to start by communicating? Shouldn’t Stanton Friedman be able to figure that out, assuming he was even trying?
Stanton Friedman simply declines to acknowledge the possibility that these aliens assuming they exist, as he claims might have been around for thousands of years and might have been responsible for the advanced activities like moving megaliths that happened in history, even though experiments failed to replicate them. This and other evidence that might indicate that, as I pointed out, in the earlier article about this, Philip Corso might be partially right and that a lot of our technology that has been developing rapidly over the last few decades may have been developed either through reverse-engineering, which he now acknowledges the government would inevitably try, or through an open line of communication with the aliens, if they have visited us.
If they have been communicating with aliens for decades, and developed advanced technology as a result then this would have a massive impact on recent developments.
As I pointed out in several past articles possible motives for the aliens could include massive amounts of research that they might not be willing to do on their own planet or, if their own environment was different than ours it could include research that they couldn’t do on their own planet.
My past articles on this subject indicated that if, as most scientists claim, there is something to Climate Change then there is no doubt that we’re currently researching it, however the typical belief is that it is an unplanned experiment that they’re only studying reluctantly. If on the other hand there has been an advanced intelligence influencing our development for thousands of years then it opens up the possibility that it could be at least partly planned.
Additional articles demonstrate that pharmaceutical research has definitely been using many people as research subjects, often without full disclosure. This is easy to recognize for anyone with basic scientific background about research methods. If there are aliens influencing our development and perhaps sharing technology with our leaders, either intentionally or accidentally when they allow them to obtain it after they crash then it opens up the possibility that there is more to that as well.
If they were trying to disclose this information in the most effective way possible there is no way they would be going about it like this. However if they wanted to continue using people for their own interests, whatever they might be there are more possibilities that might explain this and they might want to confused the issue, which is what they’re doing.
It is conceivable that many of the people involved in this research might be arguing for disclosure of some sort, but they clearly aren’t doing a good job at it. They might have some plan to do it when it suits their own purposes, or at least they might tell each other that, but this could be used as an excuse among themselves to enable them to believe they’re doing what is in the best interest of the human race.
However if this is the case by preserving the culture of deception whether they intend to or not they could be ensuring that it continues to be delayed in definitely and that the claim that they will eventually disclose that they’re doing could be just something they tell the people that are calling for it from within, and stall them, perhaps even until it is too late assuming there is such a time.
By handling it this manner they’ve successfully turned the discussion of UFOs into a fringe subject that most people don’t even pay attention to; so if there is something to it, instead of preparing them so that they could “handle the truth,” they’re convincing a large portion of the public that it isn’t even worth considering except as a joke.
The media encourages this by providing incredibly incompetent coverage of this subject and many others, which people familiar with the basics of any given subject can easily recognize.
By providing an enormous amount of coverage to obviously incompetent researchers, like Giorgio Tsoukalos, it should be clear that they're not taking this subject seriously, but if people pay close enough attention they might realize that although many of his claims are seriously flawed like when he claimed that they couldn't have dug the Seti I's burial tunnel for his tomb because his lighter went out due to lack of oxygen that would have also made impossible for them to breath; some of his other claims are legitimate like the fact that they have been unable to replicate efforts to move massive megaliths, even if he does rely on exaggerated estimates of the megaliths. If people are familiar enough with archaeology then they might realize that even the tomb of Seti I hasn't been fully explained even if Giorgio Tsoukalos didn't raise what sounded like reasonable doubts. It's till an enormous tomb along with many other massive carvings around the world that are incredibly difficult for a primitive society to build; and in the case of some of them in India, and perhaps elsewhere, they also have serious air quality problems which would have made it even more difficult if not impossible.
Occasionally even though researchers like Giorgio Tsoukalos, William Cooper, David Icke, Graham Hancock and many others don't seem credible they raise some important issues that traditional researchers can't explain.
They also use a similar tactic when it comes to so-called scientific debunkers like Penn Jillette Or James Randi, who claim to defend science, yet they're comediennes not academic scientists. Since their primary job isn't science it makes it seem acceptable when they turn it into a joke making appeals to emotion. Some of this might be reasonable but when it is done to much, and people forget that real science shouldn't be treated like a joke then it can easily turn into propaganda or pseudo-science that they're claiming to argue against.
One thing they fail to even consider is that if, as many skeptics claim, there is nothing to UFO research, why is the media providing so much coverage to the subject? If there are no aliens visiting, then there is an enormous effort to make it seem as if there is, which would involve a conspiracy as big as the one that is covering it up assuming they are visiting. Mainstream Skeptics also fail to question why the media is so bad at providing much if any good educational material on any given subject., including many other scientific subjects. Michael Shermer, who is typical of people from the skeptic community routinely ridicules conspiracy theories stereotyping them as fringe, yet if they're not conspiring to provide propaganda instead of good education on the mainstream media what other explanation could their be for their incredibly bad media coverage?
Why don't they question the consolidation of the media when it is clearly a major part of the reason why scientific discussion in the mass media is so incredibly incompetent?
Real rational skepticism doesn't ignore inconvenient facts when it suits their purposes, nor do rational skeptics decline to acknowledge unsolved mysteries when there clearly are plenty of them. They may not be able to solve all of them but if they were as scientific as they claim they would keep an open mind and it least consider different possibilities.
Some of these unsolved mysteries aren't as simple as many of us have been led to believe and it takes more time to sort through the details than many of the so-called experts imply. It doesn't help when the same media outlets repeat the same ideas over and over again without allowing diverse views or questions about unsolved mysteries. those that pay enough attention must know that the media establishment isn't even trying to do a good job covering this subject, or any other subject.
In Yes Virginia There Is A Trump And Clinton Conspiracy I started out reviewing overwhelming evidence of conspiracies that had been exposed with conclusive evidence that the Democratic Party wasn’t even denying, although they claimed the bigger problem was that it was being exposed. This article went on to explain there is also additional evidence to indicate that there are additional activities going on in secret, although there isn’t adequate evidence to determine what they are but this means more conspiracies, justifying some conspiracy theories, as long as people don’t forget which is theory and which is proven fact.
I noticed that a surprising number of recent events had many similarities to what was predicted in the Apocalypse book of the Bible including Hillary Clinton appearing like the “Whore of Babylon,” and so did many other people. These were mostly activities that were a result of decisions that were being made to rig the elections making her the inevitable nominee. An enormous amount of this made absolutely no sense at all if they were remotely trying to preserve a Democratic process; it also made little or no sense if they were trying to indoctrinate the public in the most effective way possible.
Anyone familiar with political manipulation knows that they spend an enormous amount of effort indoctrinating the public and rigging the media coverage so that only candidates supporting corporate interests can get any name recognition enabling them to be elected.
Yet they know how to do a better job.
That article concluded that, although it is farfetched, I couldn’t rule out the possibility that they might actually be trying to replicate the predictions in the Bible in some absurd manner for undisclosed motives. The firing of Comey which is going on as I post this article only adds to the insanity. Instead of adding doubts to the possibility of a bizarre Apocalypse conspiracy of some sort more insanity is now routine.
My previous article predicted that there was a possibility that Trump could be removed from office before he finished his term. This wasn't a hard prediction to make; and there were many people predicting that whether it was Clinton or Trump that was elected there was a high chance that they might be impeached. What makes this so absurd is that some of the strongest evidence against both of these candidates isn't the things that went on during the campaign or since Trump was elected but events that happened years ago and has been public all along.
Why would the media give obsession coverage to two seriously flawed candidates while refusing to cover grassroots candidates?
Why can't they do a better job pretending to provide a sincere candidate?
The traditional media and political establishment is now as absurd and irrational as they try to make the subject of UFOs seem.
If they’re trying to confuse the issue and prevent people from knowing what is going on by putting out so much insanity that no one can keep track of it all they’ve succeeded.
I can’t rule out the possibility that they’re planning some kind of major transition of some sort. If this is some kind of research project on Global Warming, or even if it’s not, but they want to prevent it from escalating so bad that it even destroys the ruling class, they might be trying to bring about reform, or the appearance of reform on their own terms.
However if that is the case and they’re ding all their activities in secret, then the best we can hope for is transformation from one authoritarian oligarchy to another, unless there is a major effort from the Grassroots to educate themselves and take over any transition that might be taking place, demanding full disclosure, a diverse media and equal access to all candidates to public office to get heard by the majority of the public.
