'Lo Steven,

No 'belief structures', however plain old logic seems to say
that powerful and largely unrecognized forces and motivations
are behind the irrational block on mainstream UFO research.

But I fully understand and respect your own viewpoints because I
too had middle-of-the-road/conformist views of science and of
'democratic' (UK's) power structures (maybe 'cos mostly wasn't
working in UK).

Even so, my various jobs meant I was well aware of other
countries' hidden forces and networks, which often carried much
weight. (see "perceptions + brief.txt" in Google, maybe also
"perceptions + world1")

On return to UK began asking some awkward science questions,
'cos published info (text-books & prestige "theories") was

and then some awkward social questions - because UK's media
_weren't_ asking them:


or "laworjustice" in Google, and "your battles".

only after they'd had time to run the license plate (not

The bent officials, media (and cops) clearly thought silencing
this unknown joe would be only a matter of rigging some "legal"
oppression to gag him. They weren't to know this analyst _and_
communicator joe is downright stubborn.

That's how "Perceptions" started. If it suddenly gets pulled
you'll know what's happening.

Please check "perceptions + reports.txt" and then tell me it
_doesn't_ hold water, bearing in mind the psychology of
power-elites and of their eager-beaver minions.
