An alien landed in my back yard and asked me to take it to my leader.
It claimed to have all the answers to our problems for disease, hunger, peace, and the means to produce a world-wide utopia. But it could only provide this information to my “leader”.
I tried everything I could for an entire day, posting on social sites, sending e-mails, making phone calls, all to no avail. No one would take me seriously.
The alien observed my efforts with what seemed to be a sad compassion, and at the end of the day it said to me, “I’m sorry, but your world is not yet ready. You tried everything you could but no one would listen. Everyone at every turn was more interested in their own individual concerns instead of what is best for all.”
As it went to it’s ship to leave I begged for the answers to make our world a paradise and the alien paused for a moment and said, “I just did.”
