Do the Lensman actually work that way in UF? I mean, that seems like a really great way to start a war. In fact, if I recall correctly the IPO makes a huge, big deal (publicly, at least) over not going where they aren't wanted; when the EA kicked them out they were like "Well, we hope you'll reconsider, but sure, we won't operate in Earth Alliance space anymore."

(That's an agreement honored more in the breach than in actual observance, granted, but it's not like the EA has precisely held up it's end of the bargain either.)

I could just not be a very close reader, but it doesn't seem like habitually pissing off governments by openly committing acts of war is something the Lensmen DO a lot. Much like regular police, they seem like a very reactive organization.
