Affluent Alien Abduction (Are The 1% Safe?)

Hats off to all the subjects in this documentary for having the courage to be interviewed. Truth has no bias towards wealth or poverty however the issue of alien abduction is often framed as very downwardly mobile and this has been achieved through means such as the CIA's purchase of the National Enquirer to cloak the subject in a ridicule curtain. It worked extremely well.

Allow me to quote Schopenhauer.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

This documentary focuses on the work of Pullitzer prize winning psychologist Dr. John Mack. The establishment rounded on him when he declared that the phenomena of alien abduction was real despite being the most prestigious head of psychology at Harvard. He nearly lost his job over it and had the surprising intervention of Professor Alan Dershowitz who supported him. If you like articulate, sensitive and intelligent interviews this is the documentary to inform yourself with.
