The latest buzz in the news has been about the UN appointing an ambassador to extra-terrestrials (I’ve also read they deny that claim). No, I’m not kidding. If the story is true, what this tells me is that there is such self loathing going on within our own fellow human beings that they think that if we are visited by ETs who want to contact us that they will be so advanced ideologically, that they will come in peace. They assume that other intelligent beings out there will not look at us like we are cattle and consider us food, but will want to hold hands and sing Kumbaya.
So, with this new appointment, I say it’s a good idea. If the loonies at the UN assume that other intelligent species are naturally so advanced they want to make love not war, why not appoint some of our libs in Washington to the job? They can meet the aliens and greet them when they first arrive. If they get eaten, no harm no foul, at least we’ll know to load up and prepare defend ourselves, right?
Until next time.
