the politics of intergalatic interventions - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Intergalactic interventions are done by groups of conservationists who are pragmatic and kind. We need to code up your languages, find how the neurological issues and guide the species to discover how to fix it themselves. If we arrived and did it on your behalf you, and the rest of the galaxy, would call it an invasion or "take over." Even if we did it kindly that would be the case - especially with a species still battling me vs. me. Indeed, we have very different policies for more evolved species, talking is easier and trust is natural. Anyhow, try not to "shoot the messengers," there's a good chap.
The politics of intergalactic interventions is so wild that we do it all at a distance to best preserve creation. Even then we don't until an apocalyptic threat is observed and a request for assistance received. We got both from Earth. The problem is, you guys are so violent and nasty to your messengers. They end up dead pretty fast. Scary. Anyway, we hope you are now ready to avoid certain death via killing your planet, would be a good idea to save it? Yes?
Once upon a time we did do more physical interventions. They either ended in war or, upon us leaving, war resumed. All kinds of therapy, intergalactic and personal require a will to learn, an ability for personal growth and the feeling that it was hard earned and thus worth keeping. This way is easier and more effective. We learned that the hard way.
