It seems like a silly law to include but we can't prove or disprove anything. It reminds me of puppet show because I think just the government would get involved.
It seemed like a silly law at first. Many people believe that there is no proof that we can even have aliens in this time. But maybe this law will be helpful in the future, when it may be possible to have aliens. This is just a unique topic overall.
The idea of a greeting council not made of government officials or employees is admirable but impractical. If the U.S. government has been hiding secrets of extra terrestrials for centuries they would not divulge an information now. If the Ordinance 300 was passed government oversight if not full control would be inevitable. We are now just finding out about intentional, internal terrorism executed by JFK's administration to ignite the Cuban conflict and gain Americans' support. Soon we will be revealed the secrets of Area 51, and much later the truth about 9/11.
I agree with most of these laws because there is no proof that aliens exist yet. But I do not think we should completely disregard aliens once they come to Earth. They can impact human life in a variety of ways. Some of these laws will be of great help once we do encounter aliens in our world. They will help keep the tension and conflict between unknown creatures and humans to a minimum. This article reminded me of the story "Muse" because of the way people disagreed with the love Alan had for Icky.
It seemed kind of strange how we would have a committee like this but at the same time if something actually happened when it could really be applied then it would be helpful.
After reading Denver Ordinance 300, I thought about the story “the puppet show” from the short story in science fiction. The law or act presented in class expressed xenophobia in many ways as well. People on earth are so afraid of extraterrestrial life and fear of lies from the government, that they would like to create to ensure truth about other life forms. The Denver Ordinance seems overboard in terms of being practical, humans are under the constant influence of false information that they fear extraterrestrial life may be occurring with humans being unaware.
this ordinance was a bit silly in our eyes because I mean E.T.s are an extremely criticized and underlooked topic. Its not that I don't believe that there are aliens but at a legal standpoint this document was a joke. It isn't a terrible idea, but they have nothing to back it up.
