Review: 2018.572 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It was gratifying that Argun stood up for his friend—more so that she remembered him and made sure his family was better cared for.

Con: So aliens invade the Earth and put the whole human population into concentration camps and we’re the bad guys? I'm not fond of stories whose message boils down to "people are awful and don't deserve to exist."
