Just because a person witnesses an event doesn't make anything a foregone conclusion. The evidence would be needed to back up that claim.
I believe that this was decided for multiple reasons, but the main one being the events that lead to such an invention would have to be the product of
a mature and scientific society that had reached conclusions regarding the overall promotion of peace and advancement.
Yet a large part of human technological advancements have come about from military ingenuity or have found it's way into self defense programs and
the battlefield. Who's to say that an alien species is just gonna be a bunch of peace loving friendly entities. My guess is that if there are other
species out there, they have as wide a range of motives and behavioral quirks as humans have.
1) Multiple Alien species exist.
Law of probabilities would suggest yes. However, out of all the species on earth, there have only been arguably 2 (edit: neanderthal and homo
sapiens though also keep in mind neanderthals went extinct fairly early in there evolutionary history. That is something that could happen to any
species out there, reducing the probability for a species to reach a high technological stage.)
that have evolved to point that allows the ability
to reason and manipulate their enviorment in a way that shows some type of technological deveolpment. There could be a million technological species
out there, then there might only be us. Until we explore the universe or have aliens land in central park we won't know for sure.
2) We do not have a plan for contact, but they will.
That would have to be the case. We do not have the technology to explore and make contact outside of our solar system. There is no need for us to have
one. If there is an alien species out there that has that capability, it is only logical that they have some method to handle encounters with other
3) We may be a pawn in an intergalactic political battle. A Missouri compromise of sorts.
Outside of nuclear weapons (which really wouldn't pose much of a threat) there is nothing that suggests that any race would have any real concern or
need of us unless your 4th point is incorrect. If they use us as a bargaining chip then there is some need of planet earths resources.
Overall there was no proof of any type of council just simple reasoning that has been stated by many, based off wishful thinking more than anything.
We don't even have conclusive proof that life exists off of planet earth.
