Its pretty simple: we did not leave the planet far enough to be the "predators" you are talking about.

Our own instinctal behavior make a benevolent, utopian society impossible, in my opinion, for us or them.
We are also sadly always assuming that another ET lifeform may evolve an intelligence just like ours, which is ludicrous.
I don't believe benevolent societies are possible for any intelligent creature because it is unnatural and is not in concordance with our very basic instincts.

So by your own thread wording...youre insisting ET Lifeforms are "malevolent" mean and harmful...and NOT intelligent-instead, stupid, dumb and lacking intelligence.
This thread is "malevolent" and not very "intelligent.
Put your pipe down..leave it alone....

A lack of benevolence does not imply malevolence
Perhaps for the most part they would be neutral viewing the Earth as just one relatively minor point of interest

Do you know what I do to insects? When they get in my room, I do not kill them, I just catch them with paper and let them fly outside. What makes you think highly spiritual aliens unlike me, the evil, so horrible person, would not really do the same to humans, i.e not harm them? It is possible, there is no reason to think they are necessarily that hostile, they could be neutral as well.

Too many people have opinion on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.
