When we progress more socially, I'm sure the galactic community won't be as scared as fuck of us anymore.

But as it stands now, humans are still so socially primitive it's scary even to us. Try to look at us from the point of view of a species without war. I would probably want to pretend we don't exist too.

What makes matters worse is that if we were to accidentally obtain any of their technology, we're actually advanced enough to reverse engineer it in a very short time. We aren't that far from developing warp travel after all and I don't think the other races are really that far ahead technologically.

It could happen in our lifetimes, OP. We're making new advancements in physics practically every single day.

>But as it stands now, humans are still so socially primitive it's scary even to us.

Well then stop being such a defeatist coward.

You don't work for Lokheed Martin, do you?
642.700.000.000 US$/ year have to go somewhere.
That's the budget of the 'murrican army according to wikipedia.
For comparisation The ISS costed about US$.

Lockheed Martin CEO here, most of this money, not counting bonuses, fraud and blow, goes towards killing babies for oil and satanic gratification within the limits of physics, available energy and material technology. Sorry.

When you have studied the progress of science and technology for as long as I have, predicting the future becomes an art form.

Plus you have to understand that we're on an exponential curve with our progress, not a linear. If it were linearly, it would be hundreds of years, at this rate a quantum AI will invent warp travel in less than 100. It won't even be invented by humans, it will be invented by a machine.

If we're going to be the world's greatest superpower, we damn well better have defence at the top of our priorities. Money well spent if you ask me. And as you said, it's advancing our technology at a breathtaking pace. The ISS is the public relations arm of our space program, in case you didn't know.
