Humanity is a screw up, ever since the first recorded battle in human history (battle of Armageddon 1468 BC), there has only been around 268 years of peace, that proves to you, how frakked up as a species we are, we live for war. It seems humans can only get happiness out of knowing they are better off than someone else, not to mention society has people buying things they don’t need, and stuff they don’t really want, just for the sake of buying: you work, you sleep you spend, welcome to 21st century humanity. So why not let a whole extra bunch of polytheistic nutcases join our merry planet of madness.
Who knows, the colonials managed to unite 12 colonies of humans, it took the better half of two thousand years to unite Europe (more or less, the EU).
Maybe the colonials could be a benefit, with Adama threatening to act as Zeus and rain nukes down upon us unless we stop all our petty fighting over land, religion, culture, society, colour or race. It is amazing that we are the only species on the planet that has such a large criteria of why we may kill someone or something.
Granted we have a lot of good honest people on this planet, and throughout history they have shown there worth, character, value and most importantly, their humanity. Something we should all aspire to.
Anyone, we seem to have enough reasons to hate people on the planet, the most common one in the Western World is that of ‘immigrants’. Hmmm wonder would there be a lot of racism towards the colonials cause “these damn foreigners are not even from our planet and are taking all our jobs” The usual racist tripe that’s spun about foreign nationals.
So in conclusion to my random rant of thoughts, I say sure let them down to visit their disturbed distant cousins, who knows, they might leave and take their chances with the Cylons.
Put a warning beacon when leaving “warning: This planet bites, do not feed the humans”
