“These are the times in which a genius would wish to live. It is not in the still calm of life, or the repose of a pacific station, that great characters are formed. The habits of a vigorous mind are formed in contending with difficulties. Great necessities call out great virtues. When a mind is raised, and animated by scenes that engage the heart, then those qualities which would otherwise lay dormant, wake into life and form the character of the hero and the statesman.” ~ Abigail Adam

When Richard Dolan joined us on the Solari Report in 2010, I said that his two book series, UFOs and the National Security State, was the best overview of the UFO phenomenon available. Well, now there is a better one. It’s Richard’s latest, hot off the presses: UFOs for the 21st Century Mind: A Fresh Guide to an Ancient Mystery.
Be careful when you start it. I could not put it down.
Ever feel like our world is getting progressively weirder? For me, the weirdness accelerated greatly when I was invited to assist in a strategic planning process for the US military and was informed that our goal was to envision how the military might operate in a world in which the American people knew that aliens exist and live among us. I insisted that I did not know such a thing. My skepticism was high.
I tried reading my way through the available books on the subject. After tearing through countless books and documentaries, I gave up in disgust. The disinformation was significant. So was the absence of serious science and investigative research and documentation. This was a subject that would take enormous intellectual power and skills and a great deal of time to organize.
Yet, I found that the corruption and centralization in our political and financial systems invariably comes back to the money flowing into the black budget and the powerful, secret technology it funds. To understand how our economy and private investment works requires an understanding of the UFO phenomenon and the impact it is having on numerous sectors of government, business, finance, media and academia, not to mention global geopolitics and financial markets. There is too much money and market shifting technology involved to dismiss it. There is also trillions of dollars of hardware flying around in global airspace demonstrating technology well beyond what we are known to have developed. Exactly where is the manufacturing infrastructure that is building all of these ships?
Not surprisingly, I also noticed that those who promoted the idea that this was a fringe issue were often those who were generating the most power and profits from keeping things secret.
Richard has done us an enormous service by using his fearless intellect and skills to wrestle the topic into a manageable framework. Yes, the unanswered questions are formidable, even mind-bending. However, the power of our intellect and faith can cut through the weirdness and think through the possibilities that we may face as a civilization. Yes, we can understand our world.
In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the documentary The Day Before Disclosure. For those who want to delve further into the UFO topic, two other recommended documentaries for this week are UFOs Out of the Blue and I Know What I Saw.
My interview with Richard will post on Thursday. We will also post my Money & Markets, so post your questions on the blog.
This is a great one – don’t miss it!
