On The History Of Us

Here at wonderplanetx we’ve been silent for a few days, listening to some interesting podcasts for inspiration. The Dan Carlin Hardcore History is one of the few that always strikes a chord for bringing authenticity to the history of mankind.

This made me think, how would we feel if suddenly an alien race came to earth and applied the same violent principles in the name of conquest? Furthermore, are other civilizations as blood thirsty as we are? Only time will tell, if, when we make contact (which I’m sure we will at some point), we end up wishing these entities weren’t so much like us….
