If Aliens Were Watching Us
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Is it just me or are we a strange being us humans, we have been following a destructive path for years now and no one seen it coming?

On the other hand, maybe no one wanted to see it coming it is easy to turn your head away and not see that makes it all better, for some. Alternatively, perhaps their voices were squandered in the wind for the sake of progress.

A strange thing progress and even success they must have different meanings for some is it progress when 1000 hard working folks are put out on the streets and the building sits and falls apart?

Is it success when you reach the top of the latter on the backs of others? It seems to be what people are striving for these days, it seems to be a very me society as of late.

If aliens were watching us or have been here 1000 or more years ago and seen what we have become today, I wonder what they would have to say about the human race.

May be it would start something like this, can you believe what they have done to themselves and keep on doing, dumb tuckers. How can any being be so damn stupid to march on in the name of progress and kill their very own in the name of it, and justify it?

Is making the almighty dollar that important, silly me we all know the answer to that, you bet it is. I heard a friend of mine talking one day about is inheritance form his parents they were still alive. He wanted it now so he could do whatever, the gall of other people’s children. He even went as far to steal from his mother because she wasn’t using it, they were in boxes in the basement, and she doesn’t even know they are there he said.

It is not just corporations digging into society for sure it is the everyday man and woman doing the same thing, just maybe on a smaller level. Is it being fed to us so much we just follow and do what we see, monkey see monkey do. I’ve have heard it said many times, they all do it or look at them they do it, but is it a reason for you to do it.

Have we forgotten how to be civil to even our own family and friends, has it gotten that bad, who can you trust? It seems not many, will a stranger stop and give you the time of day, in New York City a homeless man lies on the street dyeing and people walk on buy stepping over him and taking pictures.

Those aliens must be amazed we the human race treat our fellow human the way we do, in the name of progress and to be successful.

All so true Tim. We have lost more than we realize in this world.

Difficult times now all around, indeed. Stuff most alive have never experienced. Folks who had millions that vanished are facing a different life. Folks that had jobs living paycheck to paycheck either fear the loss of jobs - or are coping with the impact already. Yet there still are lots of bright spots in every day. And YOU are online so YOU have the potential to change lives starting with your own. Being here taking action means you are on the path to changing the world. Starting with yours:-)

Tim its easier to do the wrong thing that stand up and do the right thing. As Phil Collins said in his song She calls out to the man on the street, "Sir, can you help me? It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep. Is there somewhere you can tell me?" He walks on, doesn't look back, he pretends he can't hear her He starts to whistle as he crosses the street, seems embarassed to be there....

I have said those same words many times before myself Mark. Unfortunaltlly it is true it is much easier to do nothing and let others do it or just don't give a damn....I am so glad to see others acutally care about the world and others in general....llike I do....maybe if we all just sit down and listened to a few good tunes maybe the world could come together....a nice thought....Don't forget next time you see a light in the sky you cannot explain it's them they are watching....lol

I think if the aliens have been watching for the last 1000 years they are now sorry they did not invade us then rather than now... the population of old would probably have greeted them with a smile... now they will have half the population walk right on by and the other half mug them.. There is luckily still some good in the world, may be not much but it is something that the people need to correct... take back the reins from those that are trying to oppress the masses and put everyone back to work.. smiling faces will return to the earth as well as peace and tranquility...

We really do think alike, I have said the same thing a 1000 times man today would greet Aliens with military mite instead of open arms....and oh yes there are always the ones that are clued right out of what is going on...the sixties all over again...oh no not again....lol.....It is time the good in man takes over from the big wheel before it runs us all over....I have heard if the world lived like North Americans we would need s omething like 3-5 worlds to sustane us....lets keep taking rusian roullette with the world we live in......sustainable, I think not...May the Aliens will come lend a hand and help us get on the straight and narrow for a few 1000 years or so....lol..

How right you are, it might just take an alien invasion to wake the world to unite in what we do and where we're going.... bring on the flying saucers... UFO's and men in black... talk of the 60's .... what a time it was...

Good article Tim...I also amazed...well probably not...on how our own govenrment has let things so get out of hand...people need jobs but those jobs are continually being sent elsewhere....I'm a retired GM worker and have only owned GM products for most of my live....I'll need a new truck this year but after receiving an email and watching what is happening to GM I may buy my truck elsewhere....it's really scary what GM is doing now and how our government is even backing it.....if you have a moment go to youtube and search for "General Motors is becoming China Motors"....since the auto bailout a few years back more that 70% of GM products are being made outside the US....while the plant I retired from will be shutting down in a few more months...and it's a relatively new facility...

I shake my head every time I think of it, why did they take our work from us, it makes no sense....unless you are the people getting the big bonuses for saving the money, then it makes all the sense in the world now, money. It takes presidence over all, people working are usually numbers...I was # 3000 at my place...A world econmy not working out so far, at least for North Americans...we are losing...2000 GM workers losing their jobs next year Oshawa, Ontario, Canada...how long can it go on for...sustainable I dont think so....

Tim, there's also the good side of human nature that aliens would admire. We humans seem to be willing to sacrifice our own lives to protect another. I lived in New York during the time the homeless were on the streets. Many of them were turned out of the insane asylums and had nowhere to go except for the shelters. People gave them clothing and money. I bought them food. I understand how you feel when you think about all the corruption in our society. It's very upsetting. If everyone were like that, we wouldn't be able to exist. I try to focus on good people as much as possible. I think the greedy pigs will do themselves in, in the long run. Maybe the aliens will take care of them for us. Yes, I think we're being watched. I'm kidding. We need to expose the corruption and not lie down for it. Good points in this article. Thanks.

Please don't get me wrong I am not all doom and gloom, there is still good in the world there just has to be there are at least three right here right now that give a damn + maybe the ones watching...lol... I have seen the worst of some people and it does seem to be all around me, I see it before I seee the good unfortunatly or maybe just because I give a damn I notice people at their worst....not sure but I sure do see it....Now the good much harder to see, even though I know it is there...I don't recommened to lay down to the "man" I just mentioned that many are already corporate droans and will be hard to convince....they are happy in their world....The good is bound to make a bouncing come back....llike i say at least there are three of us that give a damn...thats a start....thanks for your comments Joan....smile they may watching right now????????????????????????lol

I trust we'll rise up like the phoenix and whip the greedy low life idiots who are ruining the planet. I sure don't want to be one of them, or have anything to do with them. They should disappear sooner than later. How do you like how things are becoming so transparent? They can run, but they can't hide. The corporate droans scare me. It's as if they are brain washed. Some of the stories coming out of the corporate world are more than upsetting. They're turning into dictatorships. Because unemployment is so high, they are exploiting the people working for them, paying them less, discouraging opinions and input, and are generally throw away toward the people who are helping to grow the business. I don't know Tim. The generation before us would be having a fit. Is it time for the short space men with gray faces to intercede?
