"We do not pretend to have achieved perfection, but we do have a system, and it works. I came here to give you these facts. It is no concern of ours how you run your own planet, but if you threaten to extend your violence, this Earth of yours will be reduced to a burned-out cinder. Your choice is simple: join us and live in peace, or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer. The decision rests with you. Gort, berenga."
The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)

And then there is "You will be assimilated."

It's one thing to come to a certain conclusion on your own. It's quite anther to be told do it or die.
