War is pretty messed-up and people are greedy: I didn't really need to be told that by an alien, but the next you see him, pass on my thanks for his
How about some real help? Instead of wisdom that's already shared by many on this planet but are impotent to actually do anything about, how
about passing you some schematics as to how to create efficient alternative energy systems? Maybe some system to actually work with the dynamics of
nature and the planet rather than against it? You know, something that will actually upset this weird unequal balance we have for good? Oh, whilst
he's at it, perhaps if he's that concerned about us killing each other, when he does eventually hand over these schematics, give us all a
little help to make sure the engineer that builds these machine doesn't go 'mysteriously missing' like everyone else.
We don't need another Yoda right now, someone throwing fortune cookie platitudes, no matter how nice it is to hear that some of us are reading from
the same hymn sheet. If they were really so wise and so observant, they'd understand that for the bulk of this planet, our hands are tied.
Apparently, we're not meant to war with our neighbours but a bloody revolution is probably the only way things will actually change. If your alien
friend knows of a better way, that's the first thing you should have been asking him. Because, whilst we're waiting for the advice he gives to come

robbed by their own governments and so on. For a concerned and compassionate alien, he really doesn't seem to care too much about those

his help in the first place, what's he doing hanging around with you in the first place.
