Quote# 61601

Exopolitics: It's about air-traffic control. It's about honest government. It's about self-empowerment and healthy living and bold declarations of reaching for the stars. Ask too many questions, though, and you'll see exopolitics is also about a race of humanoids who live under the barren surface of Mars and may, at some point, desire to mooch off Earth's rich resources.

Exopolitics "provides a conceptual framework for dealing with our highly populated universe," says author, lawyer and activist Alfred L. Webre, who coined the term 10 years ago and has watched it creep into the mainstream.

He also says the Martians are keeping to themselves for now.

Sure, so many explorations to, what a coincidence, Mars, and we haven´t found any of the little beings.

Whilst this - if true - would certainly be awesome, I've just got one thing to say; what?

Exopolitics crept into the mainstream?

Google the term and see how many mainstream news outlets are running stories on the martian ambassador.

The Martians are keeping to themselves?

Yeah, their hiding out with Bigfoot, Cthulhu, Elvis the Mothman and Nessie in Area 51. You won't believe how much beer and pizza those guys go through.

I nominate Sarah Palin as our first ambassador to Mars, lets strap her on top of a Saturn IV and get her on her way. :)

It's about time for you to shut the fuck up.

Which Martians? H G Wells', Edgar Rice Burroughs' or Ray Bradbury's?

"He also says the Martians are keeping to themselves for now."

Is that because they're slowly and surely building their plans against us?

HG Wells called, he wants his plot back.

Martians, eh? Well, your theory certainly puts a dent into these people's cunning plan http://www.marsinitiative.org/

No one would have believed in the first years of the twenty-first century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. And then the Martians found the internet, realised humans were as mad as a bag of spanners, and dropped the whole idea.

...this guy practices law? Methinks he should be more concerned with practicing living in reality.

Big deal. Everyone knows the Martians have been keeping to themselves for the last several thousand million years. Tell us something new.

J'onn J'onzz never mooched off anyone.
