I agree with the OP.
We can barely handle ourselves, let alone an alien race.
Disclosure could tear this world apart IMO.
Imagine an alien race coming here, showing off how advanced they MAY be and how they MAY live in complete harmony... And they do it all without having
to pay taxes, start wars with one another and charge their fellow beings massive amounts of money just to keep warm etc.
(I say MAY because I don't think every alien race we could come into contact with has intent on invading us and destroying us)
We are still very primitive if you dumb it down in the bigger picture. Sure, we have many, many great things about our species, but like the OP says,
we still struggle to accept one another, let alone an entirely different race.
Also, I don't think disclosure is even our choice. I think our "Leaders" would bite at the chance. From my view, if say the Prime Minister or
President of whatever country stated they are in cahoots with aliens. They could become the "Public" voice of an alien race, which would demand an
unholy amount of political and maybe ruling power (I think?). They could use them as a political weapon into becoming THE political leader of Earth.
"If you don't do what I say, I will get my alien friends to intervene" - Someone, at some point in my mind.
I get the feeling (I like to think) that aliens may see this as an abuse of the knowledge of their existence, and would go against their incentives if
visiting us. Thus they have to use any possible technological advancement they may have as an anchor to control the disclosure.
Of course, it's just as possible they are working in the shadows to control us now. 2 Sides to a coin and all that.
Just my thoughts and input.
