The United Nations Organization is preparing for extraterrestrial visits, on the off chance that we may receive one before humanity becomes extinct.
The Australian online news service news.com.au reports that Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN’s Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA), will serve as the UN’s liaison for any arriving ETs. “When we do [get a visit],” she reportedly said during a recent talk, “we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.”
This is a classical example of prioritization in a centrally planned (i.e. socialist) system. Children will continue to starve in Africa, tyrants will continue to dominate international “human rights” organizations, but it is clearly better to spend big bucks on UN sinecures so that we have a plan to tackle ET when he/she/it comes. And, as Dr. Othman said, we’ll be able to “take into account all the sensitivities related to the subject,” whatever that is.
These are the very guys (and guyettes!) who want to run the world for our benefit.
