Ever wonder what off world Beings think of us, or any other Beings colonizing their world? I would venture to guess that it would mirror pretty much what the indigenous peoples of this world felt when their lands were invaded: indignant. Yet this is what some corporations and private entities propose for the Moon as well as Mars. Where else? Will we repeat history and make the same mistakes we made with the indigenous peoples here? Even if we have the advanced technology to colonize or mine will we have the spiritual insight and peaceful diplomacy to make (and keep) treaty with our brothers and sisters throughout the universe without repeating our history of the use of violence? IMO, diplomacy will be the key to interstellar travel not solely the advancement of technology.
