I would not want the job. Even if I could somehow force everyone to think a certain way, I would never want to remove free thought.

Aliens haven't contacted us because they haven't been visiting us.



They haven't been contacting us because if they exist they are most likely too far away to find us and to travel here.

..or maybe they've already visited.... Seen the way we communicate with each other & said "sod this for a lark, they can't even communicate peacefully & always warring with each other - we're off"

You mentioned UFO hunters theyve been around for a few years and made lotsa claims and chased down exactly nothing. There are 130 groups doing the same thing theyve proven exactly nothing. Stanton Friedman has been doing the UFO lecture circit in all 50 state and 16 countries. You know in every one of his lectures he badmouths SETI in every one. He hasnt proven anything either but its made him rich. Have you seen the prices of tickets to his lectures. You would figure with 6 billion people on the planet 1/2 of them have cameras, someone would find one down landed or Crashed at least a picture showing its insides and power sourse if you could produce that then something could be realized.With UFO hunters going to secure areas border on treson for what purpose that isnt where the story. Security stuff on a secure base isnt a story.
