Description

The former president hopes alien contact could unite the Earth, but yeah, he knows people would freak out.

Isn’t one of the benefits of being president that you get to know all the secret dirt on UFOs and aliens? Yeah, throw that movie cliche right out the window, apparently. Former President Barack Obama chatted with Ezra Klein on The New York Times’ Ezra Klein Show podcast and said he “absolutely” wants to know more about those headline-making “unidentified aerial phenomena.”

While the former president finds the thought of alien contact “interesting,” he also says “it wouldn’t change my politics at all.”

Obama said his entire idea of politics “is premised on the fact that we are these tiny organisms on this little speck floating in the middle of space.” He even used it as an example with his staffers, the former president said.

UFOS AND MORE

“When we were going through tough political times, and I’d try to cheer my staff up, I’d tell them a statistic that John Holdren, my science adviser, told me, which was that there are more stars in the known universe than there are grains of sand on the planet Earth,” he told Klein.

He’d like to see contact with aliens bring the planet together, Obama said, but he’s also realistic.

“I would hope that the knowledge that there were aliens out there would solidify people’s sense that what we have in common is a little more important,” he said. “But no doubt there would be immediate arguments about like, well, we need to spend a lot more money on weapons systems to defend ourselves. New religions would pop up. And who knows what kind of arguments we get into? We’re good at manufacturing arguments for each other.”
