Over one hundred years ago, we formed this confederacy for the collective peace of our nations. We became dominant and have established our territory in the face of opposition. But now, we face a new danger. Strangers from a strange land are here. They speak a language we don’t understand and have technology far beyond our capabilities. We must proceed with extreme caution. Yes, they may make valuable allies and trade partners. But they might also be the greatest threat to our existence we have yet seen.
