A Uniter Not A Divider

I always thought that was just a totally cynical slogan--like "fair and balanced." But if he can get Al Gore and Bob Barr to work together... Well, you have to give credit where credit's due. I have not known of such a remarkable feet of unitifying since He Who Shall Not Be Named got Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt to work together.

Imagine if he had directed that talent to the Middle East. He could have had Sharon and Arafat patch things up years ago.

I vaguely remember a satirical science fiction story in which a (real or faked, I don't remember which) alien invasion of the Earth is launched with the goal of giving Earthlings an enemy to unite against.

Daryl, That was the plot of both The Sirens Of Titan and The Watchmen. BTW There was a recent review of The Watchmen in the NYT, as it was re-released. They had glowing praise.

Is that the main plot point of The Sirens of Titan? All I remember are the statues. And the harmoniums.
