Here's my take on situations like this. I like to put myself in their shoes, as much as I possibly could, and wonder.
Now, I live in my small village, near enough to a biggish town for 'pleasure shopping', but far away enough from all the noise and crap. I'm happy
enough with my life. Not exactly living in luxury, but have all the essentials to keep me and my family ticking over quite nicely.
Now, imagine one of those UFO's we keep seeing flying round, and being posting on YouTube and the likes, landing at the end of my road. Out comes a
being that looks human enough, but speaks strangely. They seem to be telling me I'm missing something in my life. They want to take me on a journey
to see how the rest of the universe is living. Not sure if it's safe to go with them, but I agree, sort of.
So off we fly to a whole new place. And there are things there I have nooooo idea what they are. They look strange. The people all look strange, and
communicate strangely. They start showing me stuff, and what it's all supposed to do, telling me it would all improve my life beyond imagination!
But, at a price!
First, we would have to allow lots more of their UFO crafts to come down, filled with people, and build on all the available land, to make this
lifestyle possible. Not really happy about that one. We love the wildlife and nature around here.
Then, we'd have to find a way to pay for all these 'essential necessities', which would mean finding a way to earn more, and learning to do stuff
never dreamed of before. We've got to work twice as hard, and sacrifice time apart from our families, just to keep up with others demands.
Then we'd need to keep in regular contact with these new beings, allowing them a certain amount of control on how we are living, and make sure we are
doing what the rest of the universe are doing. Once we'd allowed all that, we'd be up to speed with the rest of the universe!
Yes, I know it's all very fairy tale like, and a storyline, but at the end of the day, making contact with these tribes would do just that. It would
change their lives forever, in a major way. Once they've been opened up to the rest of the world. There's no turning back really. And would they
want it?? They might not like what they see, and decide we are all off our rockers for wanting to complicate our lives so much, when they indeed live
It's a tough call really. There are arguments on both sides, to say what is best for these people, but hopefully, if anything is decided, it is with
their consent, and not a forced decision.
