Craft Technology was stolen.
They stay above and come down to rape the population.
The rules have changed and (AKA humans are no longer slaves, because they woke up) and this is an act of war against humanity.
Your people have been raped, abused, mind controlled, dream hacked, biologically cloned, mentally cloned, manipulated, and molested. Literally. Quite literally, by people who made a living by telling people what to do.
The truth? I’m not going to get into it
They stole the tech 2000 years ago.
