I have been enjoying reading my compatriots reports of a possible fake alien invasion. I was a little saddened that they are missing the point. As we used to say in my poker game, it is "level one" thinking, when you consider what cards are in your hands. As you progress, you start thinking what cards does my opponent think I have in my hand, and continue further development up the scale of thinking about the game.
So what everyone fails to think about is "Why would the government want to stage a fake alien invasion?"
There is obviously one good reason for this: Aliens are ready to reveal themselves.
I think we have to consider a "fake" alien invasion as a marketing survey. The government will stage an alien invasion or encounter and then gauge how the world reacts to it. If there is widespread panic and mass systematic shutdown of the Sheeple society, then the government can reveal this was a fraudulent alien hoax! The aliens and the government can then figure out how to smooth over the transition of our society from xenophobic morons to productive intergalactic member.
