“I assume a visitor conflict is a substitution designed to benefit open support for that spending effort. Therefore, my position would be that a visitor advance he proposes to ready for is with a fabulous aliens. They are Hollywood contrivances and conveniently always have deadly vulnerabilities that humans can exploit. The good news in that unfolding is we both better a immorality aliens, and in this case, revive a economy.”

“Any aliens that have a capability to come here and hurt a whole day by vaporizing Earth or terrorizing a hominid inhabitants, would be centuries — maybe millennia — over a technical level. To spend bid scheming for such a sorry probability would be like a Neanderthals organizing their multitude to urge themselves opposite a U.S. Air Force. That won’t do them most good on a battlefield. But who’s to say? Maybe it would urge a Neanderthal economy.”

New roles for a troops industrial complex, entrepreneurs, worldwide, with outrageous advantages and opportunities for ALL! Space travel, hotels, space hospitals, schools, labs, farms, industries — tech and info practical directly to elucidate obligatory problems of tellurian needs.”

“There is no approach to ready for an visitor invasion. These fanciful visitors would have strenuous higher technology. What we should do is spend a dollars on something useful, such as an all-out joining to inhabit Mars within 10 years. The sputter outcome would be energetic and a plea would once again incite a pioneering spirit!”

“Do we know what practices would be effective in facing aliens? Wouldn’t a open have to be convinced, in all countries, that there is such a threat? When have a vital nations on this world shown they can determine on any troops march of action? Earthlings are already spending a trillion dollars a year on things military. Where would a income come from? Krugman seems to be suggesting some-more lies are what is needed. How about everybody slicing their troops budgets in half and feeding people instead?”
