The Reason Why We Haven't Found Any Space Aliens Is Because They're Dead

Physicist Brian Cox says the reason we haven’t found any signs of advanced life in the universe is because they all killed themselves. Cox says it’s a problem indicative to technology surpassing the ability to evolve past dogmas and politics, suggesting we're next.
“The solution, many scientists argue, is once a civilisation reaches a certain size, it eventually kills itself off, either through war with advanced weapons or natural disaster.
Mr Cox elaborated on this theory, claiming that it is the reason why we have not seen any strong evidence for extra-terrestrials.
He told the Sunday Times: 'One solution to the Fermi paradox is that it is not possible to run a world that has the power to destroy itself and that needs global collaborative solutions to prevent that.'
'It may be that the growth of science and engineering inevitably outstrips the development of political expertise, leading to disaster.'”
