Because this was so thought provoking I wanted to have everybody see it!
STAN, so are so very right! I have titled your reply to my article Engagement. These are Stan’s words:
Here we are 70 years post Roswell, 30 years post Lunar Landing and 20 years ago we flew passenger aircraft faster than we can today. The progress in healthcare and human sciences are still rationed out by the developed world on the basis of financial accounting and profit and loss. All around the world a generation of children and young adults immersed in virtual reality first person shooter type games are immune to the prospect of violence in the real world because by the time they are 16 they have virtually killed thousands of targets in games and we wonder why the youth have no value for human life.
We are a backward species and the only thing that brings me comfort is that our tenure on this planet is liable to be mercifully brief. The only thing I would be able to offer up in our defence is the harmony of a Philharmonic Orchestra..the musical arts…
Its perhaps fashionable to describe ourselves as a war loving tribal species who seem to spend a great deal of time and technology devoted to killing each other.
In spite of all the good things we do it seems to me..the bad things we do are tipping the scales in the wrong direction.
All of the activity at Echo Flight and Malmstrom along with Bentwaters..and in the former Soviet Union seems to be pointing in 1 direction and warning us not to consider the use of Nuclear Weapons. This flies in the face of allowing Fukushima and Chernobyl to happen and not intervene.
We will be allowed to determine our future to a large degree with the exception of the nuclear toy box..and even then 2000 times we have lit the fuse and deployed them on this planet…Only twice we are lucky on each other…Disclosure has happened..and is happening like a jigsaw puzzle the pieces are there and have been for 50 years. YOU KNOW & I KNOW..its not a question of belief its a matter of factual evidence sufficient to garner a conviction in a court of law..sans corpus delecti. The media/government games predicated in maintaining the status quo don’t matter much to me anymore. All doubt ceased the first time I saw a UFO and then the second time I got confirmation and by the 3rd time there was no question…all the times after that..were unneeded by me to cement the reality of the presence in our skies of things that defy in size and motion the hand of man to produce. Disclosure was yesterday all that remains is ENGAGEMENT with who and what will deign to meet us on their terms…because for certain they will not meet us on OUR terms.
