An often said reason for a neccessity of something big to happen for a humanity to realize they must be one is reality of aliens or visitation of
them. But why is such a reason neccessity in the first place? I don't think such would be required for much anything, although such an event would
fasten things a bit (or, create more chaos since everybody would want their share of a pie).
Most of this comes from my own life experience and from people I know.
I know several people who already do believe that humanity should stop all kinds of cruel things that we do and are. Since they have got that attitude
from somewhere, shouldn't it be possible in some way educate others to realize same things as well? Why would we need some alien entity to do
Now, I know that people are ignorant, but I also know that they realize what is wrong and what is not. Here comes competition which stems from
evolution itself. We cannot really change that, can we? People merely realize that since others do things that let them be above others in terms of
averages, they are going to use same ways to achieve what they want.
Because my premise for this is that competition comes from evolution, there is no event in world that can change our perception on competition unless
our genes are different. I do realize that we have evolved a lot, but that evolution in peace and prosperity isn't global. It is local to countries
that go by it, and in those countries it also drives itself only because everybody thinks they get more than some other neighbour (friend, relative,
whatever) they have.
So. If for some reason we come up with a perfect system of society (democracy, communism, ogliarchy et cetera) how are we going to stop people from
dismantling/destroying it because of their natural tendencies? Communism, for example, does not work because people naturally compete. It is
impossible for people to work at same exact level where others are. They will have to somehow win. Democracy works as well at it does (its not perfect
either) because people have a chance to win by others. In that, too, competition comes into play but in case of democracy it is allowed to win.
That's why it works.
I don't believe any alien visitationi or reality of them will change this kind of global behaviour very much. I believe more in chaos than in order,
when it comes down to effects of alien visitation.
It would propably not stop wars either, because visitation would not solve our problems of food supply, economy, natural resources or anything else
for that matter either.
What, exactly, would a visitation of aliens solve?
