So last week a hashtag was trending on Twitter: #GreetTheAliensIn5Words
Since we love all things sci-fi (aliens ❤ ), we decided to observe common themes among responses. You probably won’t be surprised, many Tweets painted Earth and humanity in a very negative light:
I understand that we’re not perfect, and we’ve probably failed more at most things than succeeded, but does this disappointment of humanity go deeper, or are these Tweets just spur of the moment jests? I think we need a clinical psychologist to get involved in this conversation, don’t be shy to jump in and add your thoughts… Also people felt that running away from Earth was necessary to find something/somewhere better:
If we are collectively aware of humanity’s shortfalls, then why aren’t we discussing solutions, rather than just sharing our miseries? Is it because we feel that positive change is beyond our individual powers? Have we really reached a stage of hopelessness in our Earth’s history? Here are two Tweets which I thought where more optimistic/ legit that I could get behind:
How would you greet the aliens, and what is your take on the underlying emotions present in the majority of the responses, are you concerned or complacent when it comes to having faith in humanity?
