It seems to me that society, for whatever reason, is doing its best to program us to be fearful of alien encounters through the medium of
entertainment such as movies, TV, and video games.
The only reason I can see for society programming us to be afraid, is because people in power are afraid that if... let's call them aliens... come to
live among humans that, for whatever reason, their power will be lost, so they do their best to instill a fear in us, programming us to fight back,
and make the aliens too scared to reveal themselves for fear of being injured, or worse, killed.
It would be nice if 'friendly alien' movies/tv shows/video games were as common place... ney, more
common place than... 'invading alien'
movies/tv shows/video games.
Is it not disgusting that violence seems more highly valued in our society than peace?
Anyway, those are just my thoughts and I hope everyone here has valuble points to add to this thread.
