The aliens are coming, and no one cares.

Is this the thread for this now ;)?

You say, " We don't care!", well that's true. Why do you think that for that last 10-20 years we have been flooded with alien shows, movies and the like? To desensitize us. So, when the government finally shows us the truth, that we won't care. It won't be as shocking, because over half the world already believes we've made contact with aliens and visit this place we call Earth. Might (probably) are what we call God. They probably run or work with most governments on Earth. So, when the veil is lifted, WE WONT CARE.

You had your high ground. It was a good 243 years.

Same we had our time before that.

It's screwing with us Americans big time, but it's time to accept there's another power who will make massive contributions to civilization beyond our country. Of course, many other countries are contributing awesome stuff every day, but Americans feel we're the overall leader of world progress. It simply is not a big deal ( in the sense it's a detriment to America ) if China "hears" first and whats more, it's a contribution to humanity that they've built this thing. Its high time for America to recede our paranoia of others encroaching on our self-perceived world dominance and welcome and cherish other nations' contributions

I mean that, or we Americans can collectively use our fear of global inadequacy (ours really IS bigger, I swear!) to actually contribute more to whatever field it is that we are being surpassed in. Granted, by almost any measure we're way down into middling territory except for military might and economic power, which makes it doubly depressing ... but at least we still have the resources to pivot to something useful.

It'd be so cool if there was an education race,  or a clean energy race, like there was the space race of old. Or a 'find the alien' race. Whatever, something that focused the collective will on for 10 years. So much could be accomplished.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Did Scotland ever really have "its time" ;)?

A Great Ordeal even? We are capable of so much more. Not that I have to regale you again with my optimistic nonsense.
