    I would say that we have a system where antisocial people become too powerful and dominate the way the world is run, causing everyone else's quality of life to diminish and basically making life hell for the rest of us, and that we don't deserve to be punished for the actions of that small number of people.

    I'd need to know what the charges are first... and who the judge is, so I can send bribes to the correct alien.

    I will teach them how to speak human languages before arguing with them and then show them how part of humanity killing each others ,during the first and the second world wars and the proxy wars that spread over the globe, though human still keep on breading up to 6 billions till now. I am sure they would leave mankind on this earth with frightens and never return.

    I would plead insanity.

    My bargain for continuing to allow our existence is that our sources of energy be taken away from us. Without energy to fuel our destructive urges, we are just harmless insane little primates.

    Oh wait; just like Klaatu did for us in "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (remake version).

    Considering what we humans have done, we would have to plead guilty. Maybe by reason of insanity.

    Would not have to worry about it.  Any Aliens coming to Earth would be subject to all our small virus's.  They would be dead in a few weeks.   Watch War of the Worlds Movie.

    I don't think I would. We may have been quarantined to see if we will destroy ourselves or finally grow up as a diverse civilization. The Solar System may have been quarantined in 1948. Now the U.S. has an increasingly desperate and insane president.

    I would promise to keep the arguing among ourselves alive so we never leave this big rock.
