Alien Contact and Diplomacy: Get it Right or We Suffer

Simon Drake
1

Would aliens use Facebook to communicate with us rather than trust our politicians? Earth may be regarded as having an oddity, a zoo, or something of an amusement. The universe is a wild place, we're part of it, but what is it? To understand how Aliens sees us, we first have to understand our own history of exploration, contact and diplomacy, like when the Old World powers with the New World tribes. Earth history is littered with cruel jokes on unwitting peoples, where the collision of East Meets West ends with a party screwed over, or just wiped out of existence. Why should Earth's destiny among other races of the universe be any different? Fortunately, we can all agree on the implications of mixing with advanced alien cultures, yet technology shifts the means by which alien contact and diplomacy wants to integrate with our digital world. The responsibility for contact has moved from military elites and those in the know to the contrary, connected public. Soon, now, or a day in the future, we want to make real alien contact and our diplomacy either wants to have it subjugated and naively enslaved, or equipped with knowledge and technology that enables us to explore the stars.
