The lab rat and ants you speak of are not capable of communication between us. If they were, we would surely have declared it 'inhumane' by now
especially if they were to begin pleading for mercy. So I don't see how your point holds up here..
It also depends on the context of the visit. Some say many of them are here to try and help us. Others say to do harm to us. The rest say it's just
routine experiments like we perform on our 'lesser' wildlife.
If they are truly here to help us, I don't doubt they'd let us ask a few questions. You have to realize that nobody said that this 'deal' means
getting away. I think it's safe to assume that this is a "Well if you probe me, can I atleast ask a few questions?" situation. Not a "Oh god let
me go I'll do anything" kind of thing.
However, I agree with 95% of what you said. If I was a higher race performing routine examinations on our race, I wouldn't really be one willing to
sympathize either considering how much harm we're doing to our own planet. However, as an advanced race I would suspect they would have individual
personality traits just like we do, and that they would know that not every single human being is a destructive 'savage ape' as we too have
So with all due respect, I think it would be equally arrogant to assume that they would have such a closed-minded view on every single person that is
I also forgot to add my answer. I would ask if they're here for a positive reason, just for the sake of 'science' or something else. I would also
ask if there's anything I can do as an individual to try and better the world, and if there's a place for those of us who sincerely want to live
away from the world's troubles and hopelessness when things collapse on us.
