I would not.

It would be a very bad idea. Especially if the aliens are not really that interested in us, except for maybe some occasional study. Humans are not ready yet.
First of all, let me say that I would be ok with the "event". I would probably be able to adjust to the knowledge that we definitely do share our local niche of the cosmos would another race,without it impacting too much on my belief system, or sense of self.
This is not because I am BETTER than anybody. It is simply because I, like most of you, have spent many years contemplating this in a realistic, academic manner.
of course, I have gone through the periods where the thought of this has frightened me, or left me staring at the ceiling at night. But, over time, for people that live in our dark little corner of the world, we come to certain "understandings" about our fears, and the possibilities that surround us.

But, we are definitely the minority. Here would be my concerns:

1. Abuse- We turn most learned information into something negative. (Whether we mean to or not.) Any "Godlike" alien technology would immediately be turned into a nightmare by the gigantic volume of evil humans that would swarm to it was negative intentions.

2. Fear- The majority of our planet are still largely superstitious, terrified and unable to keep fears from clouding their views of the world. One way or another, "the unenlightened" would end up insane, paranoid, lost or caught up in a paradigm shift that would destroy their sense of self completely.

3. Religion- A huge portion of the population would find some way of turning the new information into some form of religious experience. This, in itself would be wrong. Coupled with the instantaneous loss of previous beliefs, and an attempt to rectify this with new, fabricated, misunderstood beliefs, would cause worldwide trauma. Whether you believe in God or not, you must agree that, for people who do, the loss of a belief system is a disastrous event. So, for the many, many people who would not be able to rectify the existence of aliens, WITH the existence of a Supreme Being, the results would be spiritually and emotionally catastrophic.
Now, imagine this happening across the entire face of our planet.

Just being playful... I would introduce them as a god and using their knowledge, rewrite the bible forming a religious government once again.

Seriously, I would not not intorduce them at all but go with them when they leave.

This is a what "IF" here goes.

Cruise around in my new anti-grav convertible, once my re-election was secure....release a bit more technology...slowly
But I'd keep the ace card in the hole as long as possible...

ETA...just what "IF" scene is what they are doing....LOL

reply to post by Mr Pliskin

Pliskin - Great reply, Thanks. I agree with all three of your hypotheses. These are all concerns and rely upon the worst of human nature. The only benefit that I would hope that would come out of it would be the true understanding that we are a smaller part of a larger system. Maybe... Then we would realize that the petty actions that dictate our bad behavior are those not worthy of a universal citizen. We may clean up our act if only to be able to be part of and learn from this new intelligence. When confronted with a new reality can we shape that reality for the betterment of human life? I would hope, but think your conclusions are more to the point.

Edit: Like Snake Pliskin?

Just like they have been,
slowly and over time using books, movies and various television shows.
It's a big apple cart to upset since there's alot of dogma to dissolve.

I think the most important thing first and formost is the majority of people (planet wide) need to be at home when disclosure is announced. Imagine the announcement during five o'clock rush hour. There would be millions of fender bender car accidents or worse. Maybe an announcement that gives the worlds populations 24 to 48 hrs notice of " a wonderful announcement by the worlds leaders." this would give the worlds media a couple of days to speculate "What's up" and people can begin to prepare. Media heads would be in on the reveal. I would also have leaders of the worlds major indigenous populations there as well. and loads of celebrities. If the majority of the masses worship celebrities then I think that should be used to an advantage, Disclosure should be done with species that look the most human first and let people get used to that ( other species months or years later), or maybe start with footage of spacecraft far out in the solar system. Small spacecraft not motherships. I think the public would be relieved to know (governments, military,scientists and major corporations) have known/and been "working" with ETS for a long time and were waiting for the right moment. And for modern society to become more technically sophisticated. The most important thing people will want to know is are we safe. This is a primal DNA response. Then all of their questions can be answered. Be prepared for the internet ,phone and cell lines to be overwhelmed. and this part is not a joke. Be prepared for there to be a big Flush in the worlds toilet and sanitation systems as billions run for the toilet. Just like on Super Bowl tv commercial breaks. There needs to be books and pamphlets ready to be dispearsed to religious institutions and schools and for parents to pick up free at the store?schools?fire depts. etc to help them explain this to children and the mentally handicapped.There should be cable channels devoted to this only but still give people their normal shows for stability in their day to day routiene. Bottom line people will be looking for guidance as there is not a place in most peoples "brain file cabinet" to put this new information. Backyard telescopes will be a highly sought after item. Planetariums will have waiting lists for tickets. I think people of Earth will want to know the history of the ETs and " How did they make it to this level of advancement"
If the ETs have a family structure, jobs,what do they eat, what is their social structure in general. AND ARE THEY CAPABLE OF LOVE People will be looking for commonalities after the initial shock.I have thought about this day (disclosure) for decades and i have hundreds of ideas for the transition.

Fellow citizens of Earth. As your representative I would like to announce that we have been contacted and are being visited by beings from the cosmos. I would like to introduce you to your new Alien Overlord...

I guess That I would make a series of statements over the course of a few months addressing the many concerns of average citizens who have witnessed UFOs, culminating with the release of TOP SECRET hi def government footage of the spacecrafts.

That would be nice. The government saying, sorry we made you out to be liars, you were right all along. I think that people would turn to these people for guidance. A small amount of respect for a disputed fringe group.

Many to me seem a little secretive and vague to be considered the right way to do it. So, ATSer's, my question to you, if you had all of the information and power of a National Government leader how would you disclose and prepare the population for such a huge paradigm shift?

remember in third grade when you were taught how compound words are made from cramming other words and syllables together that meant things themselves?

in the spirit of full disclosure for ufo conspiracy buffs...

I like your question and see that a lot of others did too. Wish I had time tonight to read all their posts.

My answer: I wouldn't be able to do it. Being a national leader these days does not give one enough power and influence to do something that major.

If I were somehow to gain such a position, I would go on TV and tell the public everything I knew about it, then order all records pertaining to such declassified and made publicly available. This would probably result in my getting knocked off the next day, but I think it would be worth it.

But all kidding aside, alien intervention, to the extent that it exists, could only reveal itself. No one on earth could do it. And in fact, as far as I'm concerned, they have tried to do it already several times and are getting a bit tired of all our "swamp gas" theories and so forth.

All that someone in a government position could reveal would be official contacts, documentation, or exchanges with various alien groups. And I don't think this would be allowed to happen. I think someone in a position to know the truth would have to be forced under considerable duress to go public, because it would almost certainly result in him being killed.

It does look like the population is being prepared for an announcement of this type. But the chances that such an announcement would contain much truth are quite small.

isn't home is where family and friends are?

If it is a "need" for the majority of people to be at home when disclosure is announced, then the governments of the world have already decided that this particular standard will never be met, .... hence if it is a need to be home, disclosure will not occur.

A brief history of “common sense”.

Actions speak louder than words. This means if what a person actually does is inconsistent with what a person says, why believe what they say more than what they choose to do?

Friends do not mandatorily expect friends to conform to expectations so numerous they shall not live long enough to learn them. This is not an example of loving friends. this is not an example of home nor is it an example of how to make others feel at home.

Family does not mandatorily expect family to conform to expectations so numerous they shall not live long enough to learn. This is not an example of loving family. this is not an example of home nor is it an example of how to make others feel at home.

and if your actions and behaviors demonstrate that you are not my friend and you are not my family, then .... what are you?

"home" might be a neat concept on paper, but thus far it seems a poorly executed fantasy.

if being at home is needed, then will we ever hear the disclosure announcements?



which way is this "home" idea?

ill curve ball you OP. if i was a national leader i would not reveal alien existence to the general population. just look at this site and you can see, racism in all forms is rampant and previlant today. on one hand you still have the good ol kkk and nazis, then on the other you still have black panthers and the islam nation, add la raza and wow. we cant even get along with our neighbors and not so distant humans, considering we are talking about skin hue!

look around the world it is only 1000 times worse. the middle east is still tearing its self apart like a croud of animals, from all sides, im not just talking about the israel crap (we are all sick of it im sure)

so no i wouldnt disclose the truth, i would be weary of the reaction. if i did choose to disclose the truth it would be over a period of 100 years. alot of time to prep the masses for disclosure. maybe they are doing that through movies like avatar and district 9, and having teh church declare they would be okay with alien existence. it would take time, not everyone is open, even the people that claim they are

24 hours before the event:
I would mobilize all [every state] national guard and Army and Marines units under the guise of a nationwide terror drill. I would summon all world leaders both political and religious and financial to the UN in New York if they can't be there personally they would be hooked in via satellite.

12 hours before the event:
I would order all local law enforcement to be on the alert and ready to participate in this nationwide terror drill. I would order the air force to start patrols across the country. I would release a press release about the largest terror drill within the next 24 hours.

8 hours before the event:
I would brief the world leaders of the situation and advise them to take similar measures. I would then call for a vote within the UN creating a one world government in light of us no longer being an America or Chinese but instead we would become just Earthlings. I would prepare the spin that these world leaders will use on there populations.

6 hours before the event:
I would mobilize the Army,Marines and National Guard troops into the cities I would coordinate this with local and state police. I would inform all the media talking heads to be standing by for the biggest announcement in history, they all would be shadowed by the military so no information gets out until we are ready.

2 hours before the event:
I would send out a press release of a major historic worldwide issue to be announced within 2 hours. I would brief the talking heads but will keep them quiet till after the press conference.

0 hour
I would tell the people worldwide and live the truth.

If Aliens are friendly
The press conference would be about trade, exchanging technology there cultural back ground there origins and how we are all one big happy family. The world leaders would follow up with the approved spin.

If they are hostel
I would tell the people that we will start building underground cities with refineries and factories and research centers where we will start mass producing secret weapon systems we have been working on for years. These underground cities would be connected by underground high speed rail for personnel and raw materials. Let there be no mistake we will fight.

I would also inform the public that we would start building agrarian with light manufacturing abilities villages and town across the nation, this model would be like the tactics and manufacturing done by the Vietnamese during our war there. These villages would be self sustaining off the grid and would be connected by the current roads we have. All villagers would be taught gorilla tactics used against us in Vietnam. These villages would be the last line of defense and the last organized system of training and manufacture of weapons...They would be off the grid because the grid will be the first target attacked.....

We would almost have to become communist for this to work..


Edit to add I would also declare a 3 day mandatory holiday [martiallaw
] with the only exception police military firemen and medical personnel. And urge people to reflect on this or to pray. If no riots occur then its back to work

If they are friendlies, it would go something like this:

"We are all aware of the mess that is the world's state of affairs. It's been a mess for some time now. Out of the blue, there is help..."

If its hostile, to avoied mass pandemonium, I'd keep mum about it and send a very clear message to the enemy we are willing and able to blow up the entire planet to smithereens despite their overwhelming technological advantage.

Well if I were in charge, I wouldnt be in charge. I dont believe in rulers, or governance. I believe in moral integrity , and that only deviation from accepted moral norms should be legislated against . If science could prove alien life, then I would leave it to scientists to publish the facts and thier interpretations of those facts.
It is NOT the right, or the job of politicians, or governments to decide wether or not we get information from research WE pay for as taxpayers. It ought to be the right of every citizen to have free , and unfettered access to all raw data, and all information gathered by the government on the subject of alien life, and that anyone who stands in the way of the distribution of this information is a traitor to freedom and democracy.

I would make a very posative film about our astronaughts finding alien technology that is used to cure some major diseases, replace fossil fuel consuption, provide unlimited free electricity to the world which will also ensure unlimited drinking water through reverse osmosis of sea water, things like that. a sort of SG1/Mission to Mars/ET kinda thing. Then also produce information about our REAL history not the BS they spout which makes NO sense to anyone who actually thinks for themselves.

Once people had seen the film which would go straight onto DVD and also TV I would then start to actually introduce these technologies through a global foundation NOT the UN who are also so full of BS that they would screw up a convention on "Screwing up a convention".

Manufacturing would be distributed around the world so that each country would make the technologies that were used in their country. Materials would obviously have to come from the nearest local source. The foundation would be run by people who were not paid but supported there by removing them from the evil's of money. (A year ago every American would have shot me for saying that - Now they also see the CEO/Bankers are the ones who pushed the Money is great, get as much of it as you can BS)

Every country would also be given a passive defense system which can protect them from air attacks; get rid of all air forces and save trillions of wasted dollars.

To change peoples concepts you have to either break the old ones down first, which is what is happening now by the NWO, or you offer a better, safer, longer life as a replacement. Those that don't accept our offer get killed, opps wasn't supposed to type that.

This is all assuming that the ET lifeforms are friendly and advanced enough. Maybe they can fly in space but use stone pyramids as ships with a unknown natural propulsion, who knows? (oh yeah the US GOVERNMENT DOES, knobs)

Yes it would. And if the 14% of Americans who claimed to have seen UFOs is an indication of world population percentage, 930,000,000 people, the word "fringe" no longer seems to be an appropriate word to describe us.

A small amount of respect for almost a billion people would be welcomed.

When it comes to UFOs, seeing is believing. And believers will surely be ridiculed, until world governments can come clean on these sightings.

I would do it during the Super Bowl
right at the end of half time.

I would get Barbarella to MC this...

I would drape a couple of REALLY HOT ChICKS over them.
I would get BUD or COORS to sponser them, and I would get them to all sit on the hood of a REALLY FAST car...
Steppenwolf would be playin
"Born to be wild"
With their great gleaming (green) anti grav proplulsion motor on full disply on a stand with a couple of Price Is Right girls doing that hand dance segue thing they do so well...
"0 to light speed in 0.1 nanoseconds" the announcer would be saying
brought to you by...
And as Barbarella was sweeping the shroud off of the aliens

Then I would have a massive full body wardrobe malfunction happen on
AWWWW what the heck
since this is a what if...EVERBODY.... !!!!

"...And explode into space...!!!!

Then I would have the toilet paper company I am heavily invested in
run their really cheap ad and pavlovianly imbed their logo right smack dab in the middle of everyones naked salivating sub conscious...

When in America...
Go with what's proven to work
I always say.

this would put american manufacturing back on the map
save the economy
make me so rich I could retire to the Caymen Islands

and every one would totally believe aliens are real
cause everyones knows it ain't real
till it is
