How will we make the economic transition once ET tech arrives?

E.T. Disclosure is likely a global security issue due to the associated technologies and the impact on the economy. I feel its not that we can't "handle the truth", its that no one has figured out a way to make the economic transition slowly. Once a govt. admits ET is real, the pandora's box opens all the way, not a just a little bit.

No more oil.

No more expensive maintenance on vehicles, i.e., parts, smog, labor.

No state tax on gasoline, as it will be rendered inert for mass transit.

Virtually Free travel anywhere.


Huge gaps in revenue losses must be filled some way. Its hard to think of an industry that wouldn't be affected. However, humans have always found ways to survive and even thrive during these transitions.

You want E.T. Disclosure? Perhaps a good start is investigating, and or abolishing the Black Projects Committee under the Joint chiefs of Staff, or the corporate end of the Military Industrial Complex.

That Is All.

Well, i can tell you one thing. When ET's finally show up, economy will be the last thing on our mind. Just dealing with their presence on Earth will be a full time task. But one thing is for sure, when we start using that so called new technology, we'll have to abolish the banking cartels, and the money system that goes with it, and adopt a new system...

You guys are just soooo trusting!
You don't trust a human farther than you can see, but you're just sooo ready to welcome those aliens with open arms without even so little as a second thought!

Ooooh.. the "benevolent" aliens have come to live in peace?? Even though they're already here, and that the only reason you're not aware of it is because the "newscaster" chic hasn't said so on your local news broadcast.

Hey, at least being a sucker is bliss, since you don't have to think about those aliens taking over your planet.. that is, after they get the alien mind control in you

You don't read subject titles much do you? We're talking about technology here. Please do not deflect the real issue, and stay on topic.

Same thing.
So you're going to take their technology??
What if you touch it, and it turns you into a mind controlled zombie without you knowing it?
Do you think that some "benevolent" aliens are just going to give away technology for free? So that we can defend ourselves against them??

Second of all, the stuff going on in the world is so beyond believability, that I wouldn't be surprised if they had the world under complete control already.

I think ET disclosure and ET technology are independent from each other.
First of all, what you call ET technology is already here for decades; second, implementing this technology would create huge revenues for every company and government involved.
Just the potential of it being free doesn't mean that they will implement if for free use.

So, disclosure has a political/religious note....

slowly ?


and how do you know E.T.'s will even have anything to offer us that will set us free ?

even if they did , somebody would capitalize on it and you would be paying one way or another.

In cynical speculative mode:

Based on the only systems we have experience with...all free gifts come at a price. Look at the strings attached to IMF loans. Or the US bases that form part of international trade and technology agreements. Assistance always comes with interest or commitments to trade. Trade agreements always favor the dominant party....

Let's imagine an ET presence had free energy and technological advances to *give* us. The status quo of labor and economics may be maintained or accelerated to allow for the obligations to their generosity. The cost of 'free energy' could be more expensive than we imagine.

I believe in small scale, independent acts of altruism...I choose to. Large-scale altruism is a wholly *alien* concept. If a species covered light years to elevate our level of technology...only a fool would would remain unguarded or skeptical. What would *they* get out of it?

In practical mode:

Free energy or more advanced technology would still require a 'means of production.' Resources would still be a necessity and our current levels of consumption could accelerate beyond our means. Disposable culture is apparently a natural condition. Industry would evolve to recycle existing machinery into the materials required for the new vehicles. Rare minerals and metals would need to be mined. Production of anything makes huge demands of water supplies. Recycling water could become a growth industry. Many buildings would need to be demolished to rebuild in consideration of the new tech. Bureaucracy would 'move the goal posts' to perpetuate it's existence. Taxes would be inevitable to support the bureaucrats.

Free energy shouldn't inevitably equate to peace and harmony! Human nature loves greed and squabbles. The new tech would lead to offensive and defensive weapons to protect or conquer territory. The War Machine requires a State to sanction it....the State dictates a social strata and we're back where we started!
