Dr. Steven Greer discussed former U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s alleged UFO sighting in 1974 and his subsequent theory that an alien threat would unify the world.

Dr. Greer thinks Reagan was deceived by organizations wanting to propagate an alien threat to bring about a militaristic, authoritarian world system. Dr. Greer asserts that if extraterrestrial civilizations were hostile, given their technologically advanced state, humanity would already be annihilated. Instead, he argues that the real threat comes from humans, with weapons and a lack of peaceful civilization. Dr. Greer fears that disclosure could result in the surrender of freedoms for perceived security, citing the misuse of power after the COVID-19 pandemic and war manipulations as historical precedents. The United States, with the biggest economy, tech sector, and defense budget, has the most significant role to play in this scenario.
