Some pessimists, mostly bigots, brought up human experiences of wars and why peace in Pegasus would never be possible, citing the Punic Wars and conflict in the Middle East. Time to analyze these situations.
*Citing the Punic Wars actually outright favors the optimists: the wars are long over. As in BC era over. One does not hear of anyone bitter about the Punic Wars looking for vengeance from all those generations ago.
*Citing the Middle East conflict at first seems to favor the pessimists, but 1) it is an anomaly as most wars are like the Punic Wars, being long-gone and forgotten about as nations go about trading goods and forming and reforming new alliances and 2) it is unique because religion is the problem, of two groups claiming the same site for their invisible bearded boogeymen in the sky.
The Pegasus Galaxy doesn’t seem to have much religion which would prevent Wraith and humans from living in peace after the Wraith could find a better way to meet their energy needs and memories of wars fade with each passing human generation.
Some Wraith worshippers such as Neera spoke of a culling prophecy, but they are already on the side of the Wraith. The Brotherhood protecting the ZPM seemed almost religious, but their concern was only protecting the ZPM. Chaya Sar’s Athar persona was limited to one planet only and if the Wraith no longer had to cull she might not stick around if the Others allow her to go free. The Athosians had rituals and ceremonies, but seemed more spiritual than religious.
I can’t think of any religious beliefs in Pegasus which would brainwash humans into continuing war with the Wraith. Good for them. 🙂
