I think we'd conform too. I mean we'd have to if we wanted to survive.

Most people have fooled themselves about alien contact because of movies and TV. The aliens just kind of exist to serve the human story--the aliens are destroyers, partners, or gods but it's always from a human centric view...what if they choose all or none of these options?

It's pretty obvious how we will react because we do it already with superior forces. People always love or resent higher powers, be it the US, Russia, religious leaders, hollywood stars, kings, presidents, parents, sports stars, the boss at work, the police, God, Satan...etc.

The aliens will be no different--people will want "power" from them. It could be spiritual power, military, scientific, or whatever to satisfy our ego or eliminate our fears. We do it everyday with our social circles--people give us power. When they stop, we get divorced, stop calling and usually resent them to some degree for no longer empowering us.

I think most people want "disclosure" because they want a new "power" to answer their desires. The question to me that everyone should ask is "Why do I want disclosure--what is it that I'm really wanting?".

If the Cuban government came forward and said alien life exists, how many people do u think would listen, or even believe what they are saying ?

how about the mexicans ? iranians ?

I have no reason to disbelieve these other nations. Do you? What are you really saying? The US doesn't have a history of lies but other nations do?

i am using the U.S because when they talk people listen, im not saying it has to be them, it would probably be the UN.

Speaking for myself, whenever the US government has something to say, I switch off (like most people I know) because there's a high chance it's all self serving BS.

But if the united states then came out and said the UN is lying, who do u think most people would believe ?

Easy - The United Nations!

Of course this is no slur on the American Public which I separate distinctly from government.

This thread is such a mundane topic it would be like asking "what would you do if you won the lottery?" or "what do you want for Christmas?" I mean it's a good fishing line but nothing more. Sorry

Have not read entire thread, but ask a child what they would think if aliens showed up on their door step. Not much from the ones I ask this question they are being programmed for acceptance of this fact.
To not think that life smarter than us is all over the place would seem some what narrow minded to me.
We are 15 billion years out, what we have done in last 100 years is quite amazing.
They don't think we are from Milky Way anyhow, we are from the Dwarf Sagittarius Galaxy. They can tell because the Milky Way is turned wrong way for us to be from it.

So if some other thing could last, past the part of destroying it self, just think what they could do in 1,000 or 10,000 years.
They could make biomechanical machines, that are some what self repairing, then laugh at a the things they do, like days of our lives, but cosmic.
It would be like looking at ants, why would they let us know they are there, do people let ants know before they step on them.

Thats a good excuss and that is all it is, they have lied to us for so long they know people will be pist to say the least, I support amnisty but lets not suger coat the truth.

of course people can handle the truth, we handle the truth of viruses that can kill us, we handle the truth that bacteria can kill us, in fact we handle the truth of all the truth we know, there is no reason why we can't handle the truth we are not alone in the universe.

It's been used as an excuse because they know there are over unity energies involved with them, thank god the new wingless aerial vehicle has come out now, because we will discover over unity in that ions can attract electrons. and this current can be diverted into a capacitor and give us over unity energy.

let the truth be told. it's well past time, it's part of our evolution and we have been held back deliberately.

Saying that people can't handle the truth is no different than saying people can't handle the truth there is stars above us. Stop the lies.
