If I may add my two cents worth...

I spent many years engaged in reflection and discussion about
this topic. Below is one of the articles I wrote, years ago, to
express my views:

Why Goes There

There are many theories about which "aliens" are our enemies and
which ones are here to "save" us. How can we know who goes
there? If our own government has mind manipulation programs (if
you got psychology, you got mind manipulation), it seems logical
that other species - especially if they are intellectually
advanced - would have the same programs somewhere along their
evolution. Psychology is the study of the mind (thinking
processes). An advanced culture that would ignore this aspect of
critter nature would be severely retarded.

Since it is more logical to assume intellectually advanced
beings from wherever have some form of psychological studies as
a part of their agendas than to assume they do not, the next
question is HOW they might use the information gleaned from
their psychological studies. In all probability, they would
learn everything they could about human nature long before
attempting to establish any kinds of relations with humans. One
of the first things "visitors" might notice about this planet is
the combative tendencies of it's human inhabitants. Those little
nuclear blasts here and there are a dead giveaway. I seriously
doubt "they" would underestimate the fearful and destructive
nature of the human species.

With this in mind, I simply cannot envision some innocent space
critter being surprised should he/she/it encounter a missile or
laser fired in their direction on their way here to "save us". This
would probably give them a clue that landing on the White House lawn
unannounced and uninvited is not a good idea.

Friends knock, intruders intrude. If humans are intelligent
enough to understand the importance of diplomatic relations and
common courtesies, then advanced beings from wherever must
surely have enough sense to figure it out too. Whether "they"
choose to respect our cultural and political protocols depends
on their agendas and motivations for being here in the first
place.

If "they" come in peace, abducting citizens of this planet is
not the way to convince us of "their" peaceful intentions.
Establishing contact by violating regional air spaces is
probably no more tolerated on their home planet (or wherever)
than it is here. This may make it harder for earth governments
to know when they are being bombed and when it is just some
space tourist coming for a visit. It's usually wiser to phone
ahead before dropping in.

When it comes to national defense (on earth and in space), I am
more inclined to trust the armed services of my elected
government than some critters cruising around in their RV's,
abducting humans here and there (souvenirs?) and telling us they
are here to "save us". I can think of a dozen more reasonable
ways to go about establishing contact with a warlike species
than barging in and possibly triggering a nuclear war due to a
mere misidentification of incoming blips on a radar screen.

If "they" are our friends, then they must ACT like friends and
respect our cultural mores, our insane but realistic fears of the
unknown and surprise nuclear attack. Furthermore, they must
demonstrate their willingness to extend and honor mutual diplomatic
courtesies and protocol. This is not too much to ask.

No matter how many theories we may conjure about which ones are
the "good aliens" and which ones are "bad", the bottom line is
we _do_not_ know. It is wiser, therefore, to proceed with
extreme caution in _all_ encounters and negotiations with beings
of unknown origins and intentions. We have much more to lose by
accepting all we are told because we 'want' to believe than by
remaining curious yet cautious.
