one journal i won’t submit to any time soon

As a student of academic disciplines, I’m always on the prowl for upstart intellectual movements. So it was with great pleasure that “exopolitics” came to my attention. You see, traditional political science has yet to fully come to grips with the social implications of extraterrestrial contact. That’s why we need exopolitics – form the website:

Exopolitics is the study of the key individuals, political institutions and processes associated with extraterrestrial life. This website produces exopolitics papers and news using scholarly standards developed by the author from almost two decades of academic research in major U.S. and Australian universities. Information concerning extraterrestrial life and technology is kept secret from the general public, elected political officials & even senior military officials. The supporting evidence is overwhelming in scope and shows that decision making is restricted on a strict ‘need to know’ basis.

As with any academic speciality, you need a journal: “Exopolitics Journal.” It’s reviewed and is on its third volume. You can also get a ceritifcate and diploma from the Exopolitics Institute, which offers a full curriculum with intro and advanced courses. The exopolitics movement is tied to a political science professor who came to believe that international conflict was driven by ET’s who interfere in human affairs. Here’s the lecture. Founding figures, expert training, and peer review – I see an APSA section in formation!
