Ori-

It would be interesting to see an actual study, as I'm not
entirely convinced that a general consensus would support the
"hostile intentions" hypothesis. There are a significant number
of abductees (which is probably the sub-group most severely
impacted by alleged E.B.E.s) who view the entire scenario as
positive.

In Great Britain there was nearly a decade of warning before
they actually went to war, and when the general populace began
it's supportive efforts there was a general consensus among the
population that Germany was a clear threat. Such a consensus
doesn't yet exist with regard to the perceived threat of
E.B.E.s, so I'm not sure how one would energize the general
population to take action.

As far as the "higher echelons of Ufology" is concerned, I have
found this genre to be so diverse that simply trying to define
it often leads to vocal disagreements. I think that most would
agree that the general public needs to be made more aware of
research being performed in this genre, but I would doubt that a
general consensus can be reached as to how any possible "threat"
should be dealt with.

On the other hand, IMO, growing a garden helps to get us back to
nature, and that's always a good thing.
