What I really find plausible is how things that are presently being handled since the events of 9/11 and with all the new Home land security laws that
have been passed. This shows how the Government may try to hide that information from us also at the end is small commentary from real world scientist
on their thoughts of how things may come about with real first contact.
It's an interesting look at how things may play out.
Please post comments both pro and con.
I think the item you are defining in all but the single word, is 'fear'. Governments certainly fear anything that loosens their control, their
ability to regulate the society under them. So right away, any such extraterrestrial message would be taken as a threat, even if not a direct one.
Next, there is the natural urge to assume the worst because, right here and right now, we don't have another single reference point besides
ourselves... and we know exactly 'what' we are capable of.
From there, assuming the worst of any ET contact is a natural and the public panic portrayed in the video is actually a mirrored reflection of what
our governments most fear, rather than what is actually most likely.
Of course, it really doesn't help that since 1977 and the movie 'Close Encounters: Of the Third Kind' there have been but a very few offerings from
Hollywood that don't portray ET as being anything but a threat... and something to be horribly feared. So, we've been groomed to see an alien race
as being just like us; aggressive, deadly, merciless and something we can't overcome without something of a miracle.
Oh, and yes. In the movies... the miracle usually does come. Thank goodness for special fx, lol.
But... in all honesty, how would the real world react to that very real moment when the fact that we are NOT alone was finally confirmed?
Yeah... there would be anger at those who have lied for so many decades. And that is one very big reason why the lying goes on, too. There is always a
price to be paid for such deceptions and those in the marbled halls of power not only fear their society in unrest, but especially when THEY are the
rightful, deserving targets.
This is why we may never expect any president, no matter how 'hopeful' we may be, to ever even come close to what we now term, 'disclosure'. The
risk is too great... not because of any public panic, but because of a severe guilt trip.
Finally, there is the high likelihood that many other intelligent species are much like us in our aggressiveness and ability to inflict harm. It is,
if Darwin was even remotely correct, a direct result of the old 'survival of the fittest'... or strongest, or meanest, etc. You don't get to the
top of the food chain by sitting back and letting another species dine before you.
My guess is that there is at least a 50/50 chance that any ET we meet, will be an eventual enemy to the human race... either in a classic invasion
scenario or one that resembles the gradual colonizing of North America by Europeans.
In the end, people do not really fear ET but... your elected officials in Washington and London and Berlin and Moscow... they fear YOU and what you
might do if and when you no longer fear them enough.
Good video. Thanks, man
