Somebody who agrees with me. The last thing we should want is to be discovered by technologically superior aliens. Look how that worked out for the Native Americans, the Pacific Islanders, the Congoese. At best, we could end up having the right to run some intergalactic casinos, and a few us would be driving around rose colored Bentley spaceships. Not close to a good tradeoff. My view is that we are extremely fortunate that intelligent life is so rare in the universe, if not so much that it is so rare on our own planet.
I think it should be illegal to attempt to contact ET aliens, as some scientists are doing. Hmmm. Do you think there is a law review article here?
