    Scenario: We are contacted by an alien life form-far more wise and advanced than we- and offered the chance to achieve universal peace and prosperity, if we agree to a few conditions. This is not in the form of a threat. If we decline, they will go on their way and we will be left as we are and they will not give us another chance for 10,000 years. At the same time, if we accept, we will be bound by their conditions for 10,000 years, enough time for us to evolve into a peaceful species. If asked to, they would leave sooner but there would be consequences- much of which will be of our own making-such as when the US left Iraq.

    The conditions:
    1.All religious expression and thought of religion-yes thought- will be abolished. They have developed a drug to cleanse the mind of all such primitive thought patterns which, they know, causes so much strife in our world. Houses of worship will become centers for performing arts, or museums funded by the government. Some will be converted to housing.

    2.All weapons of all kind must be destroyed. Militaries will be for use in natural emergencies only.

    3.Hording of wealth is strictly prohibited. Everyone need not be equal in this respect and there will still be private property, but disparity will be very limited

    4.Capitalism will be allowed, but business will be strictly regulated to ensure that people are put before profit, and that the environment is protected.

    5.All forms of discrimination against any group will be strictly prohibited. They don’t have a pill for that, we’ll just have to get over it.

    6.Necessities of life-food, shelter, medicine and clothing-will be recognized as universal human rights and will not be rationed based on a person’s ability to pay.

    7.Nations will retain their autonomy, culture and language but be must be organized into a federation of cooperative states who share all natural resources. National leaders will be selected by direct elections in all countries but the Supreme Council of Extra Planetary rulers will have the power to impeach and remove from office, anyone who violates or undermines any of these conditions. Strict term limits will be established and two members of the same family cannot hold high office within 20 years of one another.

    8.All creatures of the earth and the earth herself will be treated with respect and care. The systematic destruction of the planet and it’s life forms in the name of profit, power or sport will end.

    9.Capital punishment and most prison terms will be abolished worldwide. Minor offenses will be treated as behavioral health and educational issues with the emphasis on rehabilitation. Serious crimes such as violent offenses and white collar theft will be dealt with as described in # 10 below.

    10.While these aliens will be inconspicuous in our daily lives-they may even live among us in human form- they will be vigilant, and take action when needed. Anyone not complying with these conditions-or who commits a serious crime- will be banished to a distant war like planet where many live under Spartan conditions and subject to a small wealthy ruling class( which they will not be part of) and the rule is survival of the fittest-in other words, much like earth is now, but much, much worse

    Might as well stop reading, right there.

    Absolutely not. I don't care what they promise, this condition, by itself, identifies them as godless and evil, and not to be trusted under any circumstances.

    And putting aside the importance of God and religion, and certainly of the freedom pertaining thereto; we're talking about sacrificing freedom even of thought, and of submitting to drug-based brainwashing and mind control. If you don't have freedom over the content of your own mind and your own beliefs, then you don't have freedom at all.

    Sounds like Soviet style communism that was funded by the same banking oligarchs that funded Hitler....substitute "aliens" for "global elite" and you have what we have now except they are not going anywhere.

    So Godless = evil? Really.? Is that why you have all of those atheists doing suicide bombings and others joining the Christian Identity (white nationalist) movement?

    As far as freedom goes, I didn't say that it was freedom. It is about peace and prosperity. Maybe you can't have both given our current state of evolution. Maybe you are just taking this to seriously.

    My answer would be "Thank you, but no. I prefer to retain my free will, free expression and individuality. Now run along."

    Besides, I never did like Mao suits.

    Hording[sic] of wealth is strictly prohibited.

    How is wealth hoarded?

    Capitalism will be allowed, but business will be strictly regulated to ensure that people are put before profit,

    But of course customers come before profits.

    The places which suffered the worst destruction didn't do it in the name of profit. See USSR.

    Atheistic communism has killed 260 Million people in the last 116 years......they didn't need to commit terrorist attacks because they disarmed them before they committed democide on the people....either through executions or starvation because they would not submit to the state......you are out of your mind.

    I suppose that elements of it are just that. So, if we value the system that we have, perhaps the lesson is that we should be better custodians of it and find a way to make it work better-for everyone.
