Once in awhile I read some cutesy, Pollyanna-ish story about how wonderful it will be when we finally make contact with an “alien intelligence” or “extraterrestrial visitors” from another star system. Wouldn’t that be lovely? We could all sit down and have a nice chat about our respective cultures. Or, perhaps we can invite them over for tea and show them our photo albums of our vacations and the grandkids. Lovely, just lovely. Right?
Well, let’s just hope they don’t look like the photos below! Furthermore, let’s hope they don’t treat us like we’ve treated each other during the history of Earth. Take Columbus, for example: he and his men raped, murdered and enslaved every native citizen they found in Haiti when they landed in the “New World”. The British Empire massacred and enslaved millions of Africans. The Romans Emperors invaded, stole, raped, pillages, plundered and massacred millions of Europeans. The Catholic Church murdered millions of “infidels” just because they didn’t share the same philosophy of “love and understanding” as the Pope. International oil companies (using their government armies) invade, murder and steal land to secure gas and oil rights all over the world. International Bankers force millions into poverty and starvation to personal financial gain. It never stops.
So, the question is this: What if aliens turn out to behave like us? (It’s a rhetorical question…).
