Q: Why haven’t the aliens contacted us yet?

A: The short answer is, because we haven’t invented warp drive yet. (Thank you, Gene Roddenberry.)

The long answer is, because we’re a self-destructive species. We act as though we believe that skin pigmentation ought to determine one’s success in life. We exploit our natural resources to the point of poisoning ourselves and every living creature on Earth. We act shitty towards each other.

No intelligent life form can trust us to act responsibly this early in our development. We’re in no way ready to be global citizens, let alone intergalactic citizens.

Can we get ready? In my lifetime? In yours? Maybe. But not without trying.

Here’s how U.S. Citizens protest laws they find unjust:

They petition, using sites like Change.org, iPetitions, or We The People. Hey, on We The People, you can even ask the President of the United States to pardon people convicted of arson! And if you get 100,000 signatures within 30 days, the White House must respond!

Here’s how terrorists protest laws they find unjust:

Armed domestic terrorists take over federal building, but it’s OK, they’re white

Protip for you Oregonian terrorists:

Don’t expect people to take your side if you favor bullets over words. We have ways of changing laws; shooting up the countryside isn’t one of them. Grab a computer, find the best writer among you, and start a petition.
