The Secret History of Marxist Alien Hunters

• With billionaires Robert Bigelow, Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, and Jeff Bezos, in the vanguard of space exploration, and rock star Tom Delonge attempting to create a “perpetual funding machine” to research and reveal alien activity, what will this capitalist-driven disclosure of extraterrestrials mean to the economic hierarchies of nationality, class, race, and gender?

• It was the communists who started the Space Race by launching Sputnik in 1957. Cosmism — the revolutionary belief in space travel — was part of the Bolshevik program. Cosmist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky believed that a socialist humanity ought to free itself of its geocentrist outlook and seek contact with advanced extraterrestrial societies. Carl Sagan and Soviet scientist Iosef Shklovsky made a similar argument in their 1966 book, Intelligent Life in the Universe.

• There were also ‘Marxist Ufologists’, mainly from the exiled Bolshevik tradition of Leon Trotsky. After Trotsky was exiled, he became a fierce critic of the Stalinist bureaucracy that swallowed the revolutionary foundations of the Soviet Union. The Ufologists among them took Tsiokolvsky’s assessment that, “Time must pass until the average level of humankind’s development is sufficient for nonearthly dwellers to visit us.” The aliens, like communism it seems, linger in the air, waiting for us to prepare the world for them.

• In 1968, Latin American Trotskyite, J. Posadas, wrote that aliens “have no aggressive impulse.” “They have no need to kill in order to live: they come only to observe…[W]e must call on them to intervene, to help us resolve the problems we have on Earth. The essential task is to suppress poverty, hunger, unemployment, and war, to give everyone the means to live in dignity and to lay the bases for human fraternity.” For Posadas, the idea that aliens might pose a threat comes from our history of wars of conquest and economic exploitation. Any species advanced enough to travel light years would have long solved these issues caused by the temporary afflictions of capitalism and the nation-state. Posadas was also interested in communication with dolphins. These unorthodox writings made him an object of ridicule even among his own and has since earned him the status of a memetic folk-hero. He never published on UFOs after 1968.

• One of Posadas’s lieutenants, Dante Minazzoli said in 1947 of the Roswell crash, “I drank coffee with some comrades in Buenos Aires… and told them that for me they were probably space ships.” Minazzoli began to focus exclusively on political readings of the great scientific Ufologists like Hynek and Vallee. He was convinced that UFOs were alien observers who recognized that humanity was becoming technologically advanced enough to join a galactic community, but was still too dangerous. He predicted that the end of the Cold War could make the ETs change their minds, but that the imperialist United States would attempt to suppress first contact and mobilize war against the visitors to defend their hegemony.

• The German-Argentinian Paul Schulz, a central member of the communist party’s industrial core in the ‘50s and ‘60s, started to receive telepathic messages which prophesized a nuclear war that would rip the fabric of space-time. Schulz found an explanation for these messages in the work of Swiss Ufologist Eduard “Billy” Meier, who believed these benevolent aliens communicated with the most advanced humans in an attempt to steer the human race toward enlightenment. Major religious, political, and scientific figures, including Marx, presumably owed their revelations to Plejoran intervention.

• Peter Kolosimo, an Italian born anti-fascist partisan was kicked out of the Communist Party for his support of Tito’s anti-Stalinist Yugoslavian socialism. In 1965 he wrote Not of This Earth, which argued that aliens had influenced or created early human civilizations. It became a bestseller in Italy. Modern proponents of his theories, such as Graham Hancock and Erich von Däniken, find Kolosimo too politically radical to give him any credit.

• But if artificial economic scarcity based on hoarded wealth is replaced with free energy, automated technology, and unlimited off-planet resources, this would create the conditions for a “fully automated luxury space communism.” Freely sharing such technology with mankind would threaten the pretenses of a capitalist class society.

Marxist Ufologists viewed UFO investigation as part of the scientific and intellectual tradition of humans attempting to understand themselves and their place within nature, with the aim of creating a truly free and equal society. In searching for aliens we are forced to confront the logic of capital that controls the world. Marxist Ufologists saw a potential ally in our interstellar neighbors. The prospect of such an encounter might be terrifying, but it’s hard to imagine our new alien overlords could be any more inhumane than the humans who currently dominate the planet.

[Editor’s Note]  According to insiders like Corey Goode, the breakaway Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate secret space program that operates at least fifteen work colonies on Mars, as well as innumerable mining outposts, relies on barter and trade to conduct commerce with over 900 intergalactic species. Indeed, according to these sources, our “Babylonian money magic” system is a classic form of slavery intentionally imposed on humanity by extraterrestrial Anunnaki overlords.

 

In case you missed it — and there’s a lot of weird stuff going on, so it makes sense that some things would slip through the cracks — aliens exist.

At least that’s what military officials and major politicians believe, according to a New York Times report from December that the Pentagon gave $22 million to aerospace research firms to investigate the UFO phenomenon. Much of that went to Robert Bigelow, a hotelier attempting to expand operations to space. Like Tom Delonge, the ex-Blink-182 guitarist who releases UFO videos and literature in an attempt to turn his To The Stars Academy corporation into a “perpetual funding machine”, he seeks to reverse-engineer UFO technology, and, in the process, give Ufology (the study of UFOs) a corporate makeover.

While the “New Space Age” entrepreneurship of Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, and Jeff Bezos have caught criticism from the labor advocates and the left, Bigelow’s privatized Area 51 and Delonge’s “Uber for UFOs” ambitions have flown under the radar.

Though Ufologists tend to possess an anti-authoritarian streak (it’s hard to be pro-“The Man” when you’re convinced The Man is also lying to you about alien visitors), their singular focus on the truth being out there tends to overlook things like political economics. After all, wouldn’t the revelation of extraterrestrial intelligence be revolution enough? It’s hard to imagine that the global order — let alone the hierarchies of nationality, class, race, and gender — would remain the same after such an occurrence. But they also ought to question what it means that this new vanguard of Ufology appears far more interested in securing funding and turning a profit than bringing liberatory truth to mankind.

Space has not always been such an apolitical void. It was the communists, after all, who started the Space Race by launching Sputnik in 1957. The United States reluctantly followed. Even before they took power, Cosmism — the revolutionary belief in space travel — was part of the Bolshevik program.  Cosmist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, who NASA called a “Father of Rocketry,” believed a socialist humanity ought to free itself of its geocentrist outlook and seek contact with advanced extraterrestrial societies. Carl Sagan, who was at least sympathetic to socialism, and Soviet scientist Iosef Shklovsky made a similar argument in their 1966 book, Intelligent Life in the Universe.

There were also Marxist Ufologists, mainly from the exiled Bolshevik tradition of Leon Trotsky. After Stalin consolidated power, Trotsky was exiled and became a fierce critic of the bureaucracy that swallowed the revolutionary foundations of the Soviet Union and turned the communist Third International into an agent of Soviet foreign policy. Trotsky’s followers declared a Fourth International that continued to push for the communist future envisioned by the early Bolsheviks. The handful of Ufologists among them took Tsiokolvsky’s assessment that “Time must pass until the average level of humankind’s development is sufficient for nonearthly dwellers to visit us” as a messianic prediction. The aliens, like communism, linger in the air, waiting for us to make the world ready for them.

Giant Planet-Sized UFO Detected by NASA’s Stereo Spacecraft

by Nirmal Narayanan                 July 14, 2018                 (ibtimes.co.in)

• A video clip originally from YouTube channel ‘A51:S’ (that went viral on the ‘UFOmania’ YouTube channel) shows a spherical UFO the size of a planet moving across deep space with an imprinted marking on its surface. The video description explains, “While researching the site of the (NASA ‘STEREO’ observation mission), I found this fantastic UFO that as you can see has such a planetarium and seems to have a force field around it.”  (see video clip below)

• Conspiracy theorists claim that the bizarre object in the video might be an alien mega-ship from deep space, or an alien space station, or the killer planet Nibiru, and that President Trump has responded to this threat by implementing a ‘Space Force’ branch of the US military.

 

A video clip originally made by YouTube channel ‘A51:S’ is now the hottest debating point among conspiracy theorists and alien enthusiasts. The strange clip shows a spherical UFO moving across deep space, and interestingly, the flying object has imprinted drawings on its body. The YouTube channel claims that they have spotted this bizarre object while researching the website of NASA’s stereo mission.

Even though the video was uploaded a month back, it gained popularity after it was shared online by conspiracy theory channel ‘UFOmania’.

“While researching the site of STEREO mission, I found this fantastic UFO that as you can see has such a planetarium and seems to have a force field around it,” wrote UFOmania on the video’s description.

The uploader of the video reveals that the UFO spotted in the Stereo mission live feed is so gigantic, that it is of the size of a planet. As the video went viral, conspiracy theorists have started claiming that the bizarre object in the video might be an alien mega-ship from deep space.

The video which was uploaded a day ago has already racked up more than 4,100 views, and viewers were quick to speculate what the eerie object could be.

UFOs Are Real and Often Narrowly Miss Crashing Into Planes

by Nick Pope                July 13, 2018                  (thesun.co.uk)

• Aliens, UFOs and death rays sound like the stuff of science fiction. But from his 21 years with the UK’s Ministry of Defence, Nick Pope (pictured above) knows that UFO’s are real and that our government leaders take them very seriously. The recent disclosure of MoD documents show that the UK government has spent 50 years investigating alien technology.

• Pope says that while the majority of UFO sightings could be explained, but around five per cent remain mysterious. And there are several cases of near-misses between UFOs and commercial aircraft. Pope also got to look into other X-File types of cases such as crop circles, alien abductions, ghost sightings, and psychic phenomenon.

• The declassified MoD documents revealed that the Russians had put a lot of effort into researching and investigating not just UFOs, but parapsychology – telekinesis (moving objects with the mind), psychic phenomena and similar things.

• The British military viewed this in terms of threats and the possibility that “novel military applications” might result from a better understanding of UFOs. It was suggested that UFOs might not objects, but rather the result of changes in energy in the atmosphere. This raised the intriguing possibility of channeling this energy to develop a death ray weapon.

• All the while, the Americans were conducting their own research through a Pentagon program called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. Some declassified videos surfaced of US Navy jets chasing UFOs. 

• If anyone was laughing about UFOs before, they’re not laughing now. Those who have looked at this subject from within the government knew better. RAF pilots had seen UFOs and occasionally chased them. The MoD had gun camera footage similar to the declassified US Navy videos. Radar operators tracked UFOs from time to time, and the speeds and maneuvers were astounding.

• The MoD told Parliament, the media, and the British public that UFOs were of “no defense significance”. However, this was a meaningless soundbite designed simply to get people off our backs, said Pope.

 

ALIENS, UFOs and death rays sound more like the stuff of science fiction than the subjects of top-secret government briefings… but I know from my 21 years at the Ministry of Defence that our leaders take these threats more seriously than they let on.

I also learned from my time there that UFOs are real. And I should know, because my job throughout the nineties was to investigate them.

World UFO Day fell last week, and it was very clear that the usual scepticism and ridicule had been replaced with a far more serious tone.

This may be helped by the fact that details recently emerged of MoD documents showing the UK government’s interest and involvement in UFOs – and suggesting that we had spent 50 years investigating the possibilities of developing alien technology.

I worked on these files and came out of retirement to help with the MoD’s release project – the decade-long declassification of top-secret papers – which concluded in January.

And while the Official Secrets Act binds me for life, now that the government itself is releasing more details of my old MoD job, I can give people an insider’s perspective on what we really got up to.


From UFOs almost crashing into planes to alien abductions

The bottom line was that we knew UFOs were real, but we didn’t know what they were.

The majority of UFO sightings could be explained, but around five per cent remain mysterious.

The cases that concerned me most were the near-misses between UFOs and commercial aircrafts – there are several such cases in the MoD’s UFO files.

What was much more fun was the other weird stuff that came our way simply because there was nowhere else in government to send it: crop circles, claims that people had been abducted by aliens, ghost sightings and people who claimed to be psychic and volunteered their services to British intelligence.

But is it really true, as the latest declassified files suggest, that we were racing against the Russians and the Chinese to acquire alien technology and develop some sort of super-weapon?

Not quite, but the reality is almost just as bizarre.
