To date, the firm conclusions of Project Blue Book are:
1. no unidentified flying object reported, investigated and evaluated
by the Air Force has ever given any indication of threat to our
national security;
2. there has been no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air
Force that sightings categorized as UNIDENTIFIED represent
technological developments or principles beyond the range of
present-day scientific knowledge; and
3. there has been no evidence indicating that sightings categorized
as UNIDENTIFIED are extraterrestrial vehicles.
-- the summary of Project Blue Book, an Air Force study of UFOs from
1950 to 1965, as quoted by James Randi in Flim-Flam!

The power to destroy a planet is insignificant when compared to the power of
the Force.

...One thing is that, unlike any other Western democracy that I know of,
this country has operated since its beginnings with a basic distrust of
government. We are constituted not for efficient operation of government,
but for minimizing the possibility of abuse of power. It took the events
of the Roosevelt era -- a catastrophic economic collapse and a world war --
to introduce the strong central government that we now know. But in most
parts of the country today, the reluctance to have government is still
strong. I think, barring a series of catastrophic events, that we can
look to at least another decade during which many of the big problems
around this country will have to be addressed by institutions other than
federal government.

Intelligence, vice director of the DIA, former director of the NSA,
deputy director of Central Intelligence, former chairman and CEO of
MCC.

First as to speech. That privilege rests upon the premise that
there is no proposition so uniformly acknowledged that it may not be
lawfully challenged, questioned, and debated. It need not rest upon
the further premise that there are no propositions that are not
open to doubt; it is enough, even if there are, that in the end it is
worse to suppress dissent than to run the risk of heresy. Hence it
has been again and again unconditionally proclaimed that there are
no limits to the privilege so far as words seek to affect only the hearers
beliefs and not their conduct. The trouble is that conduct is almost
always based upon some belief, and that to change the hearers belief
will generally to some extent change his conduct, and may even evoke
conduct that the law forbids.
