Hi Kathy, Have snipped your truisms and unjustified slurs because they are irrelevant. To address your claim to 'victimhood', we are _all_ the descendants of oppressed folk, mainly because the oppressors tend to die out (it's called evolution), to be replaced in their turn by other selfish greedy types who are unconsciously choosing extinction. But your desire for stability is even more misplaced - and dangerous. Stability, whether social or scientific only means stagnation and eventual death. Life has one main attribute: it's progressive, in that it tends to greater complexity, allowing multicelled animals for instance, and that attribute demands a certain position in phase-space: the edge of chaos. That might not be attractive to you, it certainly isn't for anal-retentive 'rulers' of any sort, but if we're not living on the edge of chaos then we're dead. If we're going to profit from evolution - and that means being survivors - we have to be exposed to all possible dangers, because that's how evolution works. And the biggest possible danger, and thefore source of evolutionary 'profit', is overt alien contact. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
