There's a slight difference between being imperialistic on Earth and going to space: There actually aren't any residents on any of the other planets in our Solar system to enslave, and no animals or biospheres to harm.

That's not to say that we wouldn't bring our own set of problems with us, or come up with brand-new ones, but could we at least be clear about /which/ problems are problematic?
