For a civilisation to advance technically and survive,
it must also advance spiritually,
not necessarily religious,
but a more tolerant view overall,
and pretty much have it's house in order
and have a more harmonious paradigm in their social structure.
This is a given if they are to safely attain the level they are at.
(Unless they stole the tech)
We currently reside on a wired up and prepped bomb called the Earth full of nukes,
it hasn't happened to date but all it would take is an accident to cause a domino effect.
Maybe the failsafes have worked to date,
but there are a lot of uncivilised countries out there
with radical religious views
and if they got their hands on a weapon of mass destruction
they would use it to further their agenda,
of this I have no doubt.
ET technology has to be advanced,
particularly in the area of energy production.
Free energy for all following total disclosure
would not bode well for humanity,
considering what fanatics could do.
Religion is dangerous,
I have said this here many times,
and is the single most powerful mind control tool in existance
and has kept humanity in shackles for millenia,
and caused division, untold strife and suffering
and been used as a tool by those in power
to reinforce their position.
A visiting ET intelligence would know this about humanity,
and assuming they are benevolent
will continue to stay aloof,
and protect their technology at all costs.
What concerns me,
if contact has been made with rogue aliens,
and considering the above, rogue they must be,
what deal has been done?
What has been sold out?
I think this is of bigger concern
than the threat of nuclear proliferation.
The lid is not on this issue solely for security reasons
but for the gain of the few
to the cost of the many,
who don't even know the scenario exists
let alone know what deal was done,
until it's too late.
This is what we, here,
should be concentrating our efforts on.
