No, the transition will happen...

...on our watch. It's just a matter of whether Liberty-minded pioneers or tyrannical regimes will do it first. Sounds like you would rather yield to the latter.

I can just see you now...telling the pioneers to turn their wagons around because they need to go clean up the mess back East first, that it's not their time to head West.

You will be waiting forever if your standard is to 'fix what's wrong with humanity' first. That is a never-ending battle, until Kingdom come.
