What is Exopolitics?

Exopolitics, as the name suggests, is extraterrestrial politics.
(The use of the "exo-" prefix to refer to extraterrestrial matters 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 theatre. 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 latter are 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 Earth’s 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 ETs, such as Area 51 and Dulce, New Mexico.
This assertion is also confirmed by many remote viewers.

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 don’t 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 don’t.
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 exopolitics, 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 Hitler’s 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.
