What level headed ET would want to get involved with us at this point in our development? All we do is fight amongst ourselves over power and
religion. We kill each other over the most inane garbage.
It's funny that we assume aliens are somehow above all of this...when the only sentient species we know of for comparison is ourselves, and we are
far from this.... I think maybe we're projecting how we'd like to see ourselves, and assuming the aliens must be like this to survive so long
(assuming it took a while to develop their tech)...
Maybe they are just as "barbaric" as we are, albeit with deadlier toys and faster cars..... Perhaps, even moreso, due to the ability to travel to
other worlds, giving them a superiority complex and treating others as cattle...
Maybe the only thing keeping them from an invasion is it's seen as a waste of time and resources, or a logistics problem...?
We simply cannot know without more information....
