The concept of Alien beings visiting us from a different planet is not only an outright hoax, but it is a hoax with important political implications. Only The Establishment is capable of fomenting a story of such proportions, and only they stand to benefit from the public acceptance of it. In this introductory piece I will present my reasons for not believing in the Alien Phenomenon and then touch on a few possible explanations for why The Establishment would promote such a story. In other essays I will examine certain ideological, political, and theological consequences of this myth, as well as how the expanding notion of myth (and, The Alien Myth, especially) has become so crucial in modern culture.
