'IT does not matter if the cat is white or black, but as long as it catches the rats, it is a good cat" so said the former leader of reformed
China-Deng Xio Ping.
In equal measure, so too must we not be choosy upon the platform in which we use to promote alternative views to the public, using them just as they
Whatever perceptions and intentions Sony has, regardless if they should use our viewpoints or not, the fact remains that our views remains here in ATS
for all future generations to read once Part 2 hits the screens, should they seek alternate views.
Benefits are mutual and non-exclusive
Despite the clamour for Disclosure, one critical question many failed to ask when an alien fleet arrives in the sky is this - What happens next?
To some, the presumption would be for foolish hostility to begin - the killing and shutting down of something we dont know and out of fear.
To others, the presumption would be 'rapture' - aliens came to free us and will give us knowledge, make our lives better - rest on clouds, feed on
grapes and wine and will have 72 virgins accompany us for eternity, paradise, etc ,etc.
NOTHING can be more far wrong than such presumptions. Even though there is no documentation on aliens, let alone know if they exists, but PRESUMING
that they exists, then they can only be presumed as living beings - capable of thought and actions, such as space travel, which we human species are
still at an infant fossilized fueled rockets stage yet.
And being living beings, capable of interstellar travel, they would be high up on the food chain. For such beings to exist, they would need to form
societies - an ingredient for civilisation to exist - to protect themselves and further growth.
And within societies, ALL would have roles to perform - leaders, workers, followers - economic activities, in order to survive.
So, they cannot be magicians who live loftily on clouds, but economic entities just like us human societies, evolving materially and mentally.
And comming here to Earth would either mean we join in to their economic actitivities thru trade, if we have something that they may need, OR...we
become operators for their economic activities - slaves, of which we must all defend with our lives for the sake of the next generations.
In the end, economics will still rule sentient beings, on this planet or from another planet. It will be on such basis - economics - that ALL
communications MUST be made upon the alien fleet's arrival, and not on foolish hostilities by the military-industrial complex or mouth watering
illusions of 'rapture' by the slow witted.
