is why, if extra terrestrials do exist, they will continue to be covered up. You'd think that with over 50 years of indoctrination by film and other media, that we would be closer to being psychologically prepared. I guess the Brookings Report was right. I know some of you will likely say that "It's Alabama - what do you expect?"
Well, yeah, but still...
Come on.. what do you expect? Please count the numbers of benevolent aliens in movies like E.T., Starrman etc. vs violent aliens like in Independence Day, Alien, Predator etc.
Just look at the total lack of sane reaction and opinion about foreign cultures some have never actually met or done any research about which are actually human and then multiply that with an alien race you absolutely know nothing about AND the fact that their technology is vastly superior (invariably fusing the fact together that their weapon technology is also far superior and they just haven't decided yet which home to destroy first ).
As has been said in Men in Black (rightfully so): "A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it."
