[W]e prefer to cooperate morally – meaning beneficially – with you.
If we cannot cooperate beneficially with you on fully moral terms – meaning without parasitism, then we have only four choices:
1) Pay the cost of your parasitism and suffer the consequences, in exchange for avoiding the cost of defending against your parasitism.
2) Boycott you and bearing the costs of boycotting you in exchange for avoiding the cost of transforming you into a moral individual or group.
3) Colonize you and bear the cost of evolving you, in exchange for creating a valued member of mankind.
4) Conquering you and bearing the cost of exterminating you in exchange for freedom from your parasitism.
So, you have a choice: limit your actions to productive, fully informed, warrantied, voluntary transfer, constrained to externalities under the same conditions.
Or we will eventually colonize and reform you, or conquer and exterminate you.
You may have the ambition of mere survival. Our ambition is to make mankind moral. For it is only in moral mankind that the evil and immoral are exterminated forever.
