Disclosure and the Appeal to Authority Logical Fallacy

elizondoWhat a wild ride recent days have been! December 16, 2017 is a day many of us will remember forever and with good reason. Along with the jubilation, must come some caution.

No!  I’m not trying to play the role of kill-joy or make myself the story by being contrarian. I’m being what I always try to be on these topics; unbiased, truth-seeking, and wanting the best outcome for everyone.

So, what I’m about to say may frustrate some. We’ve been played, we’re being played, and we’ve done it to ourselves.

We’ve all bought into the myth that this thing we call Disclosure involves some authority figure from the government sitting on a mainstream media outlet and articulating certain words. To some extent, we got what we sought in recent days and it was an emotional release. I’m sure we were all ready to do battle with that certain relative at the holiday gathering who has given us crap mercilessly for years over our belief that extraterrestrials have visited Earth and UFOs are real.

“Did you see? Did you see? The New York Times, Fox News, and CNN covered it. A recently retired top Pentagon official confirmed it. A navy pilot with unquestioned credibility has said it. They witnessed something not of this world.” Boy, did that feel good! No, it felt really good!

Why do we need that? I get that it’s a good thing for that certain relative and the vast majority of Americans and humans that still believe the LOGICAL FALLACY that if, and only if, it comes from authority; it’s a fact.

Why do we in the UFO community need it? We know what we’ve experienced, what we’ve seen, what we’ve researched. Why do we need some official to go on CNN to confirm it for us?  It struck me today that this whole Disclosure game we’ve been playing for years is about a LOGICAL FALLACY. We wanted, we needed, to hear it from that official too. We wanted some official confirmation that we weren’t crazy or wrong.

We’ve had a long-running assumption that the government knows more about this than we do. As individuals, that’s probably true. But as a whole? All they know are the collective experiences we’ve all had. Yes, they’ve documented them over time. Yes, they’ve spent probably trillions ($22 million LOL) over the past seven decades trying to figure out what these things are.

We all have more power and more capability than we even know. It’s going to be very important going forward that we don’t put our reliance on what the establishment does or doesn’t do or say on this topic. We need to OWN our sightings, OWN our experiences, OWN our ability to define truth and share it with more people without a stamp of approval. Let the Pentagon and CNN do their thing. We’ll partner where we can, but we need not wait.

WE NEED TO TRUST and EMPOWER OURSELVES.

It’s time for our species to take the next step and become part of the galactic community around us. For us to be useful contributors to that community, we do not only need to change some things about our planet. We also need to change some things about ourselves. Technology is one measure of advancement and we have made amazing strides, but it’s wisdom, compassion, and empowered mindsets are the currency of an advanced race. We don’t need orders from headquarters. We only need courage, conviction, and our Sixth Sense to move forward. Let the Pentagon and CNN do their thing

I follow my bliss. I experience my bliss. I become my bliss.
