All of the following is my opinion as usual.
All the following is a IF Aliens are Real scenario:
I get the opinion if they wanted to attack then they would have done so along time ago...Sure that makes sense to in extent.
Chances are there are more then one Race, so to group them into all being peaceful is kinda naive.
I just don't see how when Aliens "arrive," all our world problems will be solved.
I believe there will still be war.
There will still be hate.
I don't see unicorns floating through the air, rainbows, angels singing.
People will still probably need money.
I don't see us zipping through the universe in Jetson's like space cars.
I don't see them blindly sharing their technology.
America was colonized without much sympathy for the people who were still here.
Remember it was the "NEW WORLD" for those colonist.
I just think that we can't rule out that they could be planning "negative" things.
When countries invade other countries there is a bit of manipulation of the local population before the war begins.
In my opinion there is no reason to believe the aliens are not any different.
I know some grew up in the age of cartoons like "futurama" and others where humans are living side by side with aliens.
I know there are a few groups out there that worship these beings, and think they will save us and made us, so they will believe what they want.
I just think we should keep a open mind in either case.
Thinking they may have violent intentions is far from being ignorant.
All is my opinion.
