Although I'm not too fueled in opposition against Farsight, I agree that your concerns are somewhat worth addressing by the team.
A lot of their statements are very pro-USA. Courtney in the past has said to the effect of: "we're not speaking out against any countries. We're just making comparisons about how some countries (ahem: russia, china) are authoritarian. . . like the bad et's. And some countries (ahem: USA) are for free will: like the good et's. And that's the ones with the vast majority of nuclear weapons, and harboring vast corporations of human trafficking. . . not to mention being born out of the invasion (rape, torture, murder etc) of the americas.
I feel like their philosophical positions are getting deeply skewed. But I extend some credit. Things were going more smooth when they stuck to remote viewing sessions. When Courtney said: "we have no political axe to grind" - I snickered to myself saying: "my friend: we are *all* grinding political axes as long as we're alive"
I want to make a couple of related points-
*Every country on this planet is a convoluted mix of goodwill with compromised leadership. I think political scientists feel more comfortable when they can identify and classify political parties and nations. Unfortunately it's really just a giant mish-mash of sham organizations and organized crime. Nobody is truly democratic. The "electoral college?" What a joke!
*We keep using the phrase prison planet but this really isn't the best term. We ought to find a better one. A prison can be a device for justice- extracting dangerous criminals and forcing them to reform (or keep trying). That is not the same agenda as human trafficking. The English language is already a very poor unscientific language to do proper terminology but I suppose a galactic dungeon would be a little more accurate. Everyone stuffed into a compartment for the sole purpose of control and torture.
*Not all non-egalitarian societies are devoid of free will. If there are aliens that want a dictatorship in which anyone can opt out: then they are still based on free will. They are just marking their position to say: "as long as you're woth us you don't vote. You do what we tell you. But if you don't like it, you can leave. See if someone else does things better"
The bottom line to me is that Farsight is doing important work . . . but the more philosophical they get . . . the more they might be set up to a slurrey of criticism. Who knows. Rock and a hard place, I suppose
