My point was very simple. When cultures collide, the one that has the technological edge will nearly always exploit the situation. So, if aliens were able to travel between stars to get here, obviously they would have this edge. So, I find any "We come in peace" first contact scenario highly unlikely.
I have proven that reading comprehension is my thing.

I didn't completely misunderstand anything that you wrote and/or write, because what you write, for the most part, doesn't make any sense.
