Not knowing the possible motives or societal, religious or political organisational structures of technological ET life, it would be naive to presume
anything of the sort.
There are myriad scenarios that are possible, here are a few that would contradict the premise that ET would steer clear of a primitive and aggressive
1. Said ET deliberately seeks out a species like Humanity BECAUSE we are primitive and aggressive. We might be like looking in an historical mirror to
certain ET species, a little like ourselves coming face to face with an ancient Roman Legion or Mongol horde of barbarians. Frightening, but
invaluable to historians and the like...especially if those historians were safely hidden in a tank.
2. ET may never have known or experienced aggression or hostility or emotions which would evoke them in their own societies...they are mesmerized by
the trait in Humanity and wish to learn more of this extraordinary condition.
3. ET may have had contact with many other developing species of a similar personality to Humans, and have learned that invariably, such species
venture into space, and threaten the harmonious and peaceful coexistence built by many other, non-violent species, and so move to monitor and restrict
species such as ours from taking too large a step, too soon.
4. ET may not be interested in Humanity at all...they may be more interested in Earth Bacteria or other microbes, or simply plant life. Humanity being
the top technological dog on the block, but still comparitively primitive to ET, may not impress them as much as the ability of extremophiles to
survive their environments.
We cannot make any conclusions, with only assumptions to go on.
