"Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;"
                         -- Shakespeare's Hamlet

"Ay, there's the rub", or stumbling-block, just like human
abductors, alien abductors ensure their captives can't fight

The im-possibly 'paper tiger' here is built on just a few

- If alien abductions are real, we need to back each other up
and protect humanity, if that's even possible.

- If alien abductions are not real, we need to back each other
up by helping our fellow humans who sadly believe they're

Either way, we need to help each other, and thus ensure "what
dreams may come", the eternal reward of most religions, and to
our own humanity.
