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?".
