I am going to write a post about Aliens and U.F.O.s, but I don’t think this is the post you are expecting to read from a schizophrenic.
Not long ago, it was revealed that the legendary military site, “Area 51”, which was said to have been involved in all kinds of top secret U.F.O. activity, was actually used for many years as a testing stage for high-performance military aircraft. The strange lights and other phenomena people reported were actually planes built by the U.S. for military purposes.
I pretty much don’t believe in U.F.O. sightings, and I think the footage we see is of other things, or it’s been doctored.
As for aliens, I have done some incidental research, and I believe that Americans’ fascination with aliens in the 1950’s had to do with the Soviet Union. I am not sure if military propagandists started it, but fear of aliens was just another form of “Red Fear”. The aliens were a symbol of the unknown invader– powerful and with high technology. The aliens represented our terror of a Russian invasion. I think that was all it was, plain in simple.
Yes, the truth is “out there”– but not that far.
