Exopolitics, as the name suggests, is extraterrestrial politics.
(The use of the "exo-" prefix to refer to
is already established, for example, by the term "exobiology"
meaning the study of extraterrestrial life.) Exopolitics is a direct
logical extension of conventional politics to the interplanetary
Dr. Alfred Webre, who formally
introduced exopolitics as a discipline of study, defined it as the
study of law, governance and politics in the Universe.
The need for exopolitics arises naturally. Once one accepts the
existence of other sentient beings besides ourselves in our
immediate neighborhood (which for the purpose of this discussion
can be defined as the solar system and nearby stars), it becomes
necessary to look at our neighbors politically. Like any sentient
beings, they naturally have to have their own needs, desires,
interests and agendas.
By analogy with political parties on Earth, which are aggregations
of individuals who share a certain common political agenda, i.e., a
certain set of policies they mutually seek to bring about, we can
introduce the notion of an exopolitical party, which we shall define
as any grouping of members of the interplanetary community with a specific exopolitical agenda, i.e., a specific set of policies
toward other members of the interplanetary community.
The main job of exopolitics research then consists of identifying
the existing members of our immediate neighborhood and classifying
them by their exopolitical agendas, thus establishing a picture of
the existing exopolitical parties in our immediate neighborhood.
Factual and historical exopolitics
If one accepts the von Daniken hypothesis that ETs have
visited the Earth and intervened in Earth affairs since ancient
times, it follows that humankind has already been engaged in
exopolitical relations with at least one ET group, i.e., at least
one exopolitical party. This conclusion rests on the premise of the
von Daniken hypothesis being correct, but this hypothesis has been
confirmed by scores of researchers of alternative archaeology,
alternative history and ancient mysteries. Most notable among the
Zecharia Sitchin, Maurice
Chatelain, and Erich von Daniken himself.
Another school of thought is that there exist at the present time
some active, though officially denied, exopolitical relations
between Earthís most powerful governments and military forces and
some ET groups. Evidence for this assertion comes from the testimony
of government and military insiders who have broken ranks and come
forward with classified information (whistle-blowers), victims of
experiments and operations that appear to be conducted jointly by
government/military operatives and some ETs, and witnesses to
unusual activities happening around clandestine government/military
facilities believed to house research and operations involving
Area 51 and Dulce, New Mexico. This assertion is also
confirmed by many
Both of the above assertions imply that humankind has already been
engaged in some exopolitical relations, and therefore exopolitics as
a discipline of study is not merely hypothetical, but actually
relevant to past, present and future world events.
Friend or foe?
The question most commonly asked about any given ET group, or to
use proper terminology, exopolitical party, is whether they are
friendly or hostile. Since these terms are too fuzzy and ambiguous,
let us use more precise definitions. For any given exopolitical
party, we can analyze its exopolitical agenda as to whether it lies
in line with the best interests of humanity, in which case we can
classify the exopolitical party as friendly to humanity, or whether
it goes against the best interests of humanity, in which case we may
classify the exopolitical party as unfriendly or hostile.
(This analysis only considers those
exopolitical parties that are in some way concerned with our
planet and/or species. It would be extremely naive and
egocentric to assume that every party in the Universe has an
agenda or policy concerning us. Most probably donít care about
us one way or another, we are not that important.)
Sources ranging from ancient evidence to
present day contactee testimony to remote viewing indicate that the
interplanetary community in our immediate neighborhood hosts groups
with widely differing exopolitical agendas, some of which lie in
line with the best interests of humanity while others donít. Such
spectrum of exopolitical differences fully agrees with natural
expectations: an environment as diverse as the interplanetary
community would be naturally expected to host many widely different
individuals and groups. Every society on Earth has its exemplary
citizens and its criminals; why would one expect the interplanetary
community to be different?
It is critically important, however, to clearly separate exopolitics
from racism and xenophobia. In forming our opinion about and policy
toward any group of ETs, we must only consider their
rather than their race or species or place of origin. Every
individual regardless of race or planet of origin has the power and
responsibility of free choice, and must be held to the standards of
moral rights and responsibilities independently of any others. Just
like not every German forced to live under Hitlerís regime during
World War II was a Nazi, even if a certain planet were determined to
be ruled by a tyrant with a hostile exopolitical agenda, that would
not make everyone from that planet an "evil alien". Conversely,
there can be bad apples in good bunches, and it is possible for
advanced and positive societies to have rogue members.
Ongoing study of exopolitics
Exopolitics is a very new and emerging discipline of study, and a
lot of facts remain to be uncovered and ascertained. The work lying
ahead before exopolitics researchers is to identify which
exopolitical parties have involved themselves in Earth affairs in
our history and which ones are involved with us and/or our planet
now. Their exopolitical agendas need to be examined and a
determination made as to whether they act in the best interests of
humanity or not. The politically engaged citizenry must force full
disclosure out of its leaders and rulers regarding all contacts and
deals with any exopolitical parties. Our immediate neighborhood
should be searched for any potential allies or enemies of humanity.
Exopolitics is most actively studied and promoted by Dr. Alfred
Webre and Dr. Michael E. Salla. The
author of this article began his own study of exopolitics (prior to
learning this term) in 2001, and is currently working on a book on
the historical exopolitics of Earth and the solar system. Though the
book is not ready yet, a
rough briefing document
listing some preliminary findings is available.
