That is an interesting line because we became the dominant species imo via being the smartest creatures on this planet and believe it or not being
bipedal and having use of a thumb. Of coarse there are many other reasons but we aren't the only violent creatures on this planet we call home. Those
of us who carry more violent traits tend to live more in their animal/reptilian brain. They tend to view the world in a more selfishly narrow lens
which the I takes precedent over the whole and compassion/empathy exist very little to them if at all.
Unfortunately at this level and stage humans have only recently evolved the frontal cortex and we haven't wired our brains yet to not act through
emotions first and logic and reason second, At least as a whole. It also doesn't help socio and psychopaths tend to be drawn to powerful positions
like being world leaders.
As smart and free as we think we are, we tend to be swayed and brainwashed as if our freewill were to be called into question.
I think peace will only be found when enough of us as a whole have become awakened spiritually, cognitively and have acquired enough knowledge through
the deep perspicacity of inner wisdom. Unfortunately most people blindly live their lives very "superficially" through severe MATERIALISM and
NARCISSISM. As a whole we humans suffer as much as we did many thousands of years ago with only the CAUSE changing. Our brains can't distinguish very
well between the suffering our ancestors experienced and the suffering we have now. Anguish is Anguish as far as our brain knows. In poorer regions
suffering my come thru being hungry, thirsty and ridden with deceases. In regions where those may not be such a problem, our suffering may take
different forms such as loneliness, stress, depression and the many mental disorders. As far as our brain is concerned it cannot tell the difference
in suffering only that we all suffer in one form or another. At least those of us who haven't figured out ways to minimize it to an extent.
I also think If these so called aliens were so advanced as we assume they would see that as a whole we aren't as violent as we make ourselves out to
be, only that we are misguided by foolish violent leaders and ideals. I'm quiet sure if they were of the peaceful type they may wish to spread their
wisdom, then again it might as a whole be against our freewill. In that case we might have to inevitably overcome our own problems as a whole. If
that's the case we will need to really get our act together quickly!
BTW i'm not trying to lecture you, even if it may come of like that.
