Looking back to our own history, ... No. The american Indians didn't unite together, instead some of them helped Cortez.

There is a book written by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. entitled, Sirens of Titan.

In the book Earth people are stolen by other Earthlings and taken to Mars where
they become Martians with transmittors in their heads.  They are put in space
ships with no weapons and sent to Earth for the sole reason...to bring the whole
world together.

It is an old theme but a very interesting one and I think Vonnegut thought of it first.  A good read.

I have never read Vonnegut, sounds interesting though.

I don't know if we would come together, or if it would tear us further apart. I would like to think that with a common enemy we would come together like we have in world wars of the past.

It would be nice to put an end to petty bickering over the small differences that we experience between different nations and races. Scapegoats do have a tendancy to unify a cause...



Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

I think the Joe Bloggs would want too, But by the time the Governments agreed to work togther it would be too late!

Governments seem only interested in defending there own, unless there "interests are put at risk. If aliens landed in Bagdhad (Pre War) I think not an eyelid eould have been batted unless they headed straight for the Oil  dontgetit.gif


You just need to look at history to see this repeating over and over. As much as I hate to Admit Humans are a "Look after Number 1" race , although I dream the day that we do unite and toss the politians into the sun along with the lawyers and possibly reality TV stars  grin2.gif

Nice thought, Can't see it crying.gif (unless I dream thumbsup.gif )

Humans are selfish, and would not agree to not be at the top and control everything, If a "new" race of any kind is higher than us and had control, we wouldnt stand for that.

no.. most countries would lock down there borders and ever other possible means of communication... evantully running into a system of anarchy... evantully a new government would be set up... either a worse one or a better one... some countries would never lose the governmental system just there leaders power... similiar to todays democratic imperialisms and things like that... im not going into details about each country... im guessing the american government would run for there lives and leave the civilians for fish bait...

I doubt it the TV series V would be what I think would happen, Human deputies leading Joe Bloggs into the alien food chain.


As a sidenote; We have eradicated diseases such as smallpox, antibiotics can cure the plague and lepracy, but we cant cure a cold!

Using that logic:

What if the aliens just had great transport to get here, but when they decided to attack they pulled out spud guns?

I Believe that we would unite. Humans in general are very violent. Nothing unites people like a commen enemy. We see it again and again in all of history, modern and anceint.

Here's something to think about........


     How long did it take for society in general to get over the differences of other races with colored skin. We are still in the process of accepting this today.


    What about religon?

            Can everyone agree that everyone has a choice to believe in whatever they chose?

    With those two questions in mind ........how hard do you think it would be for everyone to unite in a common goal no matter what it is.

    We know that alot of the things we are doing to the world right now is destroying it........but have we all united to make it stop?

   Saddly, I think that the answer is no.

   For all of our sakes I hope that when the time comes when government officals can no longer denie the existence of extra terestrials, that those beings are here for peace and not domination. alien.gif

In the book Sirens of Titan, the world did come together
to fight the Martians.

The guy who masterminded the effort was given supreme dictatorial authority
over the Earth.  The first thing he did was to make a decree that no longer
would our differences keep us apart.  There would be no more discrimination.
Everyone had to be equal.  
Those who were beautiful had to scar their faces.
Those who were strong had to wear huge weights to burden themselves.

The world will only come together to pick up the pieces once we destroy it.
And then only for a short, short time.

The answer is No. That's human nature, we are too selfish. There would be a very big fight between all the governments as to who will be the leader of the effort to fight off the aliens, so many countries might end up fighting eachother sad.gif

The true definition of marxisim and communisim is a complete equality of life. Now Marx never went as far as to apply this to weight and looks.

    Even so Marxisim was found to fail in every circustance, mainly because of the need for individuals to express their individuality.
