    I could talk about the politics of Mass Effect all day long

    SPOILER ALERT You've been warned.

    Just FYI. Every life is programmed to survive. If you think another life form like that to the human race would be any different than we are. You are going to be surprised when that raace shows signs of racism, psychopathy, stupidity, etc.

    There are even cases here on Earth of killer whales, killing other animals just for fun. And there have been cases of wolves doing the same thing to other animals. And what is more disturbing? There have been cases of Grizzly bears killing other grizzly bears. You know murder. We are not the only life form that is capable of exibiting feelings. Look at most other animals and they do show "primitive" emotions that we exibit.

    I could deal with a new spin on old sh*t. But I'd have to say alien life is an entirely different matter, you can't really say what they'd be like, I'm not saying they'd be better, just different. They could have any entirely different form of sentience. Everything you said about animals on Earth I already new. Nature is extremely violent. But I think there's a big difference between human violence, and every other kind of violence under the sun. I think there is a plethora of adequately f*cked up human behavior that you will not find in any other species. There's just this special kind of stupid I can't stand about people. Maybe I just want to think humans are as bad as it gets as far as sapient life goes, probably not, but I'm sure there's better.

    But my point was that it was probably not any better. Primitive emotions are some of the only actual thing hard-wired in all of life. If anything this alien race would just show the same crap that humans exhibit. So why believe that there is anything better?

    What grounds do you have to state that alien life would at all think like humans?

    Because. Its simple biology. Greed and selfhishness are what best defines us. If you were to ever find an old alien race or that race comes to us. Why would it be any different from us?
