“In the future, when we reach a Type 1 Civilization, then the boundaries of the individual countries will be lifted, we will be a United Planet of Human beings, this kind of action will no longer be acceptable.”
I’m sorry, but is this a proselytizing, ‘we are the world’, syrupy quote from a transcript of a really bad Star Trek episode? Is that you Uhura trying to beam us up? If so, we do not want your ‘World Federation’ Gene Roddenberry/Isaac Asimov bloviating on the evils of sovereign nations and societies; while all of you ‘one worlders’ are legends in your own minds, the rest of us are busy trying to save our Republic. We do not have time to walk around in Spock ears or dressed as Klingons fantasizing about some “Type 1 Civilization” evolutionary bad acid dream, we are working to restore our Constitutional, Representative Republic, so beam yourself up so we can get busy. Live long and prosper on another planet.

So it's ok that she gets murdered because it's part of her culture. And because it's part of her culture, she had no right to try to escape it for a normal life. Is that how that works?
