In 2019, Former Polish President Lech Walesa shocked everyone with a story about aliens and UFOs. He had been serving as the president of Poland from 1990 to 1995. While addressing a public group in the city of Krosno, the retired politician said that he became a supporter of the idea that rational aliens not only exist but can also be dangerous to the Earth.
Walesa believes that there are 3 levels of intellectual development in other galaxies. Unfortunately, humanity is at the lowest level. He warned that the visit of incredibly advanced and intelligent creatures could be a threat to the security of our planet. “What are they doing here?” he said. “If we threaten to destabilize here with Macron, P[u]tin there, they will interrupt us, cut us in half, the Earth will collapse, everyone will crush,” said Walesa.
The former president suggested that such an invasion scenario could push humanity back for 5,000 years. It would take the restoration of civilization from scratch “to the very moment when we are today.”
Walesa also said that perhaps, similar situations had already occurred. There have been 5 or 4 civilizations like ours that had reached the same technological advancement that we are today. They made the same mistakes that we are doing now. They collapsed due to a lack of peaceful communication.
Regrettably, it is not easy to find complete translations of the speech given by the former politician who has since retired. However, one section of the speech provides a glimpse into Wałęsa’s views on extraterrestrial phenomena. These views include vague references to what might be construed as the work of Zecharia Sitchin or Erich von Däniken.
“The higher civilization can hold us that way for five thousand years. They will send Adam and Eve and we will build the world again,” he said. “People find things, dig in stones, these pyramids … no answer, where did it come from?”
Lech Walesa expressed his belief that there have been civilizations in our history that have reached similar levels of technological advancement to modern civilization but ultimately collapsed due to war and a lack of peaceful communication. This idea is not uncommon among those who believe in the possibility of extraterrestrial civilizations, as many speculate about the potential dangers of advanced technology in the absence of moral and ethical guidance.
The ex-politician also pointed to a variety of archaeological puzzles. He used them as examples of a potentially advanced human race that was destroyed many years ago. “People find things, dig in stones, these pyramids… no answer, where did it come from?” he said.
The media has often shown interest in and made fun of public officials who express their belief in the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence, and Wałęsa is not the first one to do so. Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera, a Florida congresswoman claimed to have been abducted by tall blonde aliens when she was a child.
While her claims were met with ridicule by many, her beliefs in extraterrestrial intelligence are not uncommon. In fact, many people around the world claim to have had similar experiences or encounters with alien beings, although their accounts are often met with skepticism and criticism.
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also advocated for a serious investigation of the UFO phenomenon. Reid believed that the government has not taken the UAP Phenomena seriously enough and that there is more evidence to suggest the reality of extraterrestrial life than many people realize. Reid’s beliefs are shared by many who believe that there is a cover-up surrounding the issue of UFOs and that the truth about extraterrestrial life has been kept from the public.
In March 2022, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory posted a paper on arXiv.org that detailed a new design for a message intended for extraterrestrial recipients. Is revealing Earth’s location to aliens a good idea? Physicist Stephen Hawking said that they could even destroy us. He spoke publicly about his fears that an advanced alien civilization would have no problem wiping out the human race the way a human might wipe out a colony of ants.
Considering Hawking’s statement, is there any hostile alien civilization out there? Recently, a research paper published on arXiv.org has explained the consequences of contacting extraterrestrial civilizations. The paper attempts to provide an estimation of the prevalence of hostile extraterrestrial civilizations through extrapolation of the probability that we, as the human civilization, would attack or invade an inhabited exoplanet once we became a Type-1 civilization in the Kardashev Scale capable of nearby interstellar travel.
The author of the paper Alberto Caballero admits that although there are some limitations, there are roughly four “malicious extraterrestrial civilizations” in the Milky Way.
Mr. Caballero suggests that the probability of invasion by a malicious extraterrestrial civilization is lower than the probability of a planet-killer asteroid collision. He researched the number of times invasions happened on Earth and applied it to the number of known and estimated exoplanets.
He concluded that sending radio messages to potentially habitable exoplanets has an extremely low probability of invasion. He mentioned that only one malicious extraterrestrial civilization in the Milky Way that has mastered interstellar travel is likely, making them the so-called “Type 1” civilization. The fear of alien invasions is mostly created due to the hostile behavior of aliens shown in Hollywood movies.
A former CIA pilot John Lear dedicated part of his life to serve in the US Air Force and then worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He believed that a significant number of alien civilizations visiting Earth are hostile or have a different set of morals than humans. He mentioned incidents such as the 1987 UFO sighting over Anchorage and the 1975 UFO sightings over Strategic Air Command bases, where UFOs reportedly hovered over the nuclear weapons storage area for several hours.

Lear also referred to a 26-page document made by Bruce Maccabee, a physicist employed by the Naval Surface weapons laboratory, which he claims provides evidence of the UFO sighting over Anchorage. While Lear did not directly say that the aliens were hostile, he implied that their actions were threatening, especially around military installations.
