Paradigm Research Group was established in July of 1996 by Stephen Bassett, a political activist and consultant, to advocate in all ways possible for an end to a government imposed truth embargo of the facts surrounding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race - Disclosure.  In addition, PRG would provide representation to researchers and political activists throughout the world in the field of extraterrestrial-related phenomena research/activism.   Accordingly, "Research Group" refers to this loose confederation of research and activist clients.  Advocacy consists of the following:

1) Creation of a website dedicated to ending the UFO/ET truth embargo.
2) Establishing a political action committee - XPPAC.

Registered lobbying of the executive and legislative branches of government.

4) Engaging the Washington, DC political media.
5) Producing an exopolitics conference in the Washington, DC metro area - The X-Conference.
6) Building international awareness and networks such as the Exopolitics World Network.

Paradigm Research Group is committed to the full disclosure of information by all holding parties. In that regard it supports the following positions on certain key issues:


Normalization of the political dialogue and scientific rhetoric in order to facilitate engagement with reluctant but honest, reasonable members of the mainstream governmental and scientific community.

2) Proactive support by the general extraterrestrial phenomena research/activist community of the ongoing efforts to bring about an open, comprehensive Congressional hearings to take testimony from current and former government employees.
3) Support for extension by law or executive order of amnesty to all government and contract employees for any and all misdeeds, not involving violence to persons, relating to the U. S. government’s actions, posture and statements regarding extraterrestrial phenomena since 1945.

Commitment by the research/activist community to extend and strengthen current coalitions and national networks in order to:


ensure that all evidence from all sources is given proper consideration.
b) enhance the ability to obtain independent financing and media coverage.
c) help counter the inevitable effort by mainstream institutions to co-opt in the post-Disclosure world the work of the research/activist community since 1947.
d) build a foundation for the post-Disclosure work to follow.
