I think knowing that aliens exist would be the best thing ever for the human race. Not only would we realize we're aren't along in this universe, it would give all of mankind a common enemy. Well, except for the traitors who worked with them.
I agree that such knowledge can potentially unite the whole human race and this is undoubtedly a good thing.
However, I don't think that all the aliens are hostile.
You see, I'm a strong believer in the application of Newton's third law of motion beyond just physics (to every action there is always opposed an equal reaction). So, if there are hostile aliens running amok across the cosmos preying upon the weak civilizations, then there must be some kind of inter-galactic police force there.
I believe in good vs evil, the justice, and the propensity to balance.
