I sincerely doubt we will be hearing anything from the government on this anytime soon. If aliens are visiting our planet and have no hostile intent,
why don't they show themselves? If they're visiting as has been alleged, spying on us without making direct contact, I wouldn't trust them.
If aliens are truly visiting, they obviously have technologies that we haven't even dreamed of. The aliens would have some means of travel that we
can barely theorize about, much less successfully engineer. In short, there's nothing we can do about them. We are almost completely defenseless.
What benefit is it for the government to cause a mass panic? It serves no useful purpose until we can devise effective counter measures against these
Then, with defensive technologies in hand, if they try to come here, we should fend them off and only allow them to approach on OUR terms. The
Japanese successfully assimilated western technologies and became a modern nation state in one generation. Japan should be our "template." if these
aliens truly are visiting here. We could assimilate their technologies but maintain our own identity as Japan has done.
The other "template" could be the native Americans who by and large failed to assimilate European technologies sufficient to defend themselves
against the white man's encroachments. The Cherokees very nearly brought it off but did not acquire the requisite military power to hold onto their
lands in Georgia. They trusted the good faith of the white man. Big mistake. We should be suspicious of the "gaijin" (foreign devils) like the
Japanese, not trusting like the Cherokees. The aliens might not like that, but at least they would learn to respect us.
