Ronald Reagan Speech Suggests Aliens Among Us

No kidding. In his address to the 42d Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, New York he said that we just need a common enemy (outsider, if you will) to absolve our differences. Sounds dangerously like scapegoating to me. Then he said there are aliens already among us — those who are in favor of war.

Can we and all nations not live in peace? In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you, is not an alien force already among us? What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?

So we should unite ourselves against those who favor war or who threaten war? A war on those who want war?

Quick, grab a pitchfork and some torches. We have some unification work to do.
