Internet vs. Aliens
Is it true that the Internet Killed the Alien Star? On the one hand:
The Internet showed this particular emperor to be lacking in clothes. If UFOs and alien visitations were genuine, tangible, objective realities, the Internet would be an unstoppable force for detecting them. How long could the vast government conspiracy last, when intrepid UFO investigators could post their prized pictures on the Internet seconds after taking them? How could the Men in Black shut down every website devoted to scans of secret government UFO documents? How could marauding alien kidnappers remain hidden in a nation with millions of webcams?
Paul Hellyer was Deputy Minister of Defence from 1963-67, and later, Minister of Defence and Deputy Prime Minister under PM Pierre Trudeau, so he's an important member of Canada's ruling Liberal Party.
He's also convinced that the Bush Administration is embarking on a war that threatens all civilization -- no, not the one in Iraq, Hellyer is talking about the war with the aliens on the moon and Mars and in outer space.
I wonder if High Commander Dick Solomon has anything to say.
