Re: Was Janeway a bit of a tyrant?

If the Prime Directive is a concern, should the Federation apply it to itself. In the case of Arturis and his slip stream drive, which is much more advanced than Federation technology. (Assuming it were given in full honesty, rather than as in the show) shouldn't they refuse the technology as it would upset their normal development as a civilization? Why is it acceptable for the Federation and Star Fleet to acquire advanced technology, but deny it to others?
