I would guess there would be a major change in some aspects in society, and probably no change in others. Religion? I would imagine a snake oil
salesman would crawl out from every rock trying to sell a religion with an " alien" spin on it. Politics? Hawks would have a field day, and
progressives would have an easier time selling the whole " we are all in it together" theme to help get some progressive policies enacted. Congress
would be busy for years with alien-oriented legislation. I think that nations would be a little more trusting of each other, and citizens of their
countries would be a little more outspoken, realizing how fragile life can be. The economy? Boom, Boom, Boom...less people would mean more
opportunity, and wages would be very high, as even a dishwasher would be in demand...and the new technology field would be in overdrive. But our basic
human nature and frailities would continue to drive our social and domestic categories, as well as recreation.
To the idea that it would not be capable of winning, all I say is that the afghanis have been fighting for the last 7 years against a MUCH more
advanced society, and they did for years sucessfully against another advanced foe before that, albeit no where near as advanced as the USA is right
now. The important thing to remember is that these aliens are not traveling cosmic distances because they want to destroy us, but because they want
something. They are going to do as little damage to get it as they can. If they are that advanced they surely have " doomsday " weapons" , but that
would not be an option if they want this planet. Maybe that is what all the abductions are about, so they can introduce a virus or something along
those lines that would take care of us with out ever firing a shot?
