So the US and the world are so divided about all of our mortal affairs. Which president was it that said we would come together if attacked by
aliens? Aside from obvious "La la la you lied to us, rar!" stuff, if the government were to tell us that an asteroid were headed for direct impact
with the Earth, would it bring us closer together? They could say it's going to hit in several years and that they're working on a solution. I
guess I'm thinking along war lines, as in bringing everyone together under a common goal. Could they fool the world? Would they be able to fake the
explosion of the ~space object~ in the night sky? How much money would people spend on shelters? Would people go into seclusion and actually hurt
the economy and society in general?
Heh, sorry about this being a dumb topic, but I want to contribute so badly! Please move this if it's not in the right forum. It's sort of a mix
of science with space and politics, maybe some aliens in there too
Thanks for reading anyway!
