A friendly alien tries to figure out what the hell we are doing here.

:lol:

That was awesome. Definitely a good perspective on the whole situation.

And when the aliens do land, I hope some of them talk in a British accent.

That was awesome. People wonder why I refuse to vote. That's why. It's all fucking BS.

Every time someone talks to me about government I feel like that alien did.

That is a brilliant video. Well worth the entire watch. It's nice to see things from a different perspective like that. Thanks for posting.

Chapter 2 of the new unreleased Terence McKenna omnibus series addresses exactly this point. One of the key issues he addresses is his opinion that conflict arises when authority, greed, and violence are the traits in the leaders, rather than compassion, fairness, and wisdom (the shamanic ideal). It's worth a watch:

Fundamental misunderstanding of government: viewing it as a separate entity from ourselves. I suggest replacing the word government forever with the people.

Interesting concept but like most of the leftist propaganda that is out oversimplified and unrealistic for the real world not some ideal utopia.

It would be nice if we could choose what our tax money goes toward though..  Like, we still have to pay x amount of tax dollars, but get to decide which sectors our own money goes to.
