I agree there's an issue here. In the UK there's been some
suggestion of links between certain ufologists and the Far
Right.

A related issue is the implied anti-Semitism in many conspiracy
theories, where phrases such as "cabal of international
financiers" can have a rather more unpleasant meaning.

A contentious area, but an important one, I think.


Best wishes,
