If aliens have the technology to travel here then I'm guessing the negotiations will be on their terms.

Technological proficiency does not equate dominance or a political monopoly. If we entertain this scenario, it would depend on their reasons for being here.
Knowing the obstination and greed of some humans, they might even be exploited and taken advantage of.

They're already taking advantage of the idea of their existence in many ways. *laughs*

i'll let the aliens take over everything if they give me tax cuts. i need diamond studded drapes for my yacht. i need the rainbows from the diamonds to live or else i will be sad from the lack of color and commit suicide.

Actually that's a good premise for a movie (or at least a Vonnegut-esque short story), alien invaders from Mars taking over the government because they promise tax cuts which makes Republicans install them as supreme overlords..
how do we know this hasn't already happened?

Or they use earth as the battle ground for their temporal war because they don't want to mess up their own planet and timeline. It's like an elaborate game of chess, but alien style, and a far more advanced form of war than we have dared imagine. :huh:

I once read a story with this exact premise. :)

Actually, not the same story. It is a Korean novel that I read, and it had magic (seeded by the aliens). The premise is actually the spoiler, since before you had no idea what the fuck was causing anything till about half way through.

So- about that.

Interesting time for the government to resurrect the subject.

For decades they’ve denied everything and now they’ve fully disclosed evidence. Twice. Why?

Also, it’s not like I didn’t believe in alien civilizations before this considering the sheer scope of the universe but isn’t it funny that the public doesn’t seem to give two fucks. This is information I’ve been waiting for since watching Leonard Nimoy host In Search Of as a child. Any thoughts?
