Is there any reason for any government to reveal aliens are real (assuming they are?)

UFO people are always demanding that governments disclose everything they know about UFOs and aliens argueing from the position they believe they're real. Well ok, asusming they are real, and the government can confirm that fact, what possible reason would a government have for doing so? Can think of lots of reasons to bury such info, but not one reason to disclose it.

Reasons to conceal such info include:

- "A person is smart. But 'people' are dumb panicy animals and you know it." - "M.I.B."

- Governmental authority would instantly collapse if superior intelligence aliens were revealed as being here. "Why should I pay taxes and follow your laws when there's this superior species who does things another way?"

- Our cultures and socities don't assimilate well relative to others. We have trouble getting along with our own nation's citizens, and tend to marginalize and minimize other country's peoples. Why would we treat those from another planet altogether better?

- The aliens may not be entirely kind, and represent the successful predator of their homeworld. And they're here for reasons we wouldn't like, but have reached a tentative agreement with the US and other nations to do what they're gonna do, but in exchange for our not opposing them openly, must keep themselves secret and their operations discreet. In other words, rather than having them do their thing anyway, but openly, agree to permit them some limited version if they keep their presence secret. (Like the overriding theme in "X-Files")

- The aliens are the basis for all our religions and spiritual ideas. If their presence were confirmed, it'd be seen as a direct challenge to our human ideas about God. If God's just a mortal being from another planet, that realization would be disastrous.

- The aliens are working with one or some governments, but not all. The governments left out may try a Hail Mary type military attack to prevent their feared eventual subjugation by either the aliens themselves, or those with their technology. Imagine if aliens were working with and/or for Iran. Would we just sit and twiddle our thumbs nervously or send in the B-2s?

That's only a partial list. And on the other side, the reasons to disclose such information:

@dalehileman,
Wanna bet?

While many people are willing to become martyrs, if keeping something like aliens secret the easiest way to ensure secrecy is to threaten the whistlblower's family tree. A whistlblower may be willing to go to prison or even die to get such info out, but how's their willingness to have their entire family tree killed?

For some unprecedentedly major thing like an alien diclosure, nothing's too far.

@dalehileman,
Governments have kept less major secrets secret. British kept their busting the Enigma code secret for example. US kept the F-117 secret for about 20 years until it's first combat use.

Isn't as hard as civilians think to keep military and government secrets.

Think though all the things we have in the public realm about it is in large part due to government disinformation. Assume it's gonna get out, so control what gets out. Fill the public with bogus facts, and bits of truth to confuse the issue. So even if the actual truth got out at some point, it'd appear as just more bogus info.

UFO is exactly that, an undentified object, so people should probably stop talking about stuff they dont know about.
Its their assumption its an alien but chances are advanced aliens would be all around us without us even knowing if they wanted to.
