[b]Now dont get hot and bothered and all itsmyrighttoknow on me before you hear me out. Yes the government is corrupt, yes they can be assholes, yes they can be power whores, yes they can be big brother controlling us. BUT think about what the government does... they control and run and monitor BILLIONS of humans. Now what are humans? SAVAGES. We start wars, kill mothers, rape children, scheme, corrupt, lie, steal, panic, backstab, and most of all react. react in ways that has... so far... changed our planet for the worse. Humans are the scariest most volotile explosive and dangerous element on the earth. Not only are we a force to be reconed with, we are a force with EMOTIONS! And reactions! and personal desires. and personal agendas. and thats... scary.
so basically what im getting at is... the government must be scared shitless... i know i would be.. having to control a giant disaster waiting to happen, and im sure they want to keep the beast as peaceful as possible. so that brings us to information. Ever watch Lost? That new TV show about a bunch of people wrecked on a deserted island. well.. long story short there are two groups of survivors and they show us the group that forms a sort of government that keeps the scary information about the island away from the rest of the survivors until its time... and the group that finds out all the shit thats going on at the same time and everyone knows everything. guess in which group panic ensues and people start going ape shit.
now i trust you. and i trust me. and i know we simply want information about a world that holds a lot of secrets. but i dont trust humans. and fear. and what fear has done to the world. and what fear brings. because i know we all would like to think intelligent means benevolent... but we arent... so why must other creatures be? we kill insects that bother us.. WITHOUT THINKING. if the government knew this about another life form... willing to treat us as we treat others? i wouldnt want 4 billion people knowing either. so i would like to sit back and wait until its time. and i just wanted to share with you why maybe, its for the best.
