Nobel laureate economist Paul Krugman repeated his assertion this week that the United States could benefit economically if the government began pouring money into anti-ET defense in preparation for a possible alien invasion of Earth.
Even a faked war of the worlds scare might help, he suggested.
The Huffington Post reached out to some experts who share an intense interest in the idea that earthlings are not the only intelligent game in town — or space.
We asked, If there were an ET threat and if the U.S. government were to suddenly rechannel its budgets into preparing an anti-alien defense, would that ultimately save our economy? Their responses varied, ranging from skepticism to enthusiasm.
Yes, yes its all very simple. With their UFO technology, the US will stage an Alien invasion. They will use concentrated Gamma rays to internally combust humans at such strengths that one second you’re standing there and next thing you’re a puff of dust in the wind. They will wipe out most of the human race and then pretend to beat the so called Aliens and claim victory. – anonymousCoward, GodlikeProductions
Ah, so the crop circles were just target practice.
Or perhaps the real aliens will attack during the planned fake alien invasion. Just remember the lesson of the Wizard of Oz. If the invasion happens, keep cool and look behind the curtain.
