I thought this issue made the Avengers look like a bunch of complete douchebags.
So, the Phoenix Five have brought peace and prosperity to the world and how does the world react??? Apparently they are not impressed, well at least POTUS isn't. We get some lame moralizing about how mankind shouldn't be taking an easy way out and that any progress we make should be hard fought for. Try rationalizing that to the millions of people who are living with death, war and starvation in the world.
If anything this story serves to emphasize how flawed mankind actually is.
Make the world an actual honest to goodness Utopia and humanity will not be able to accept it, eventually turning on their saviours.
Based on the Avengers reactions and actions in this issue I think that Scott and co. should just let the Phoenix Force raze the earth and start from scratch.

That's how it always is. When someone conquers the world, it's a bad thing even if the ruler is good. You're tramping on everyone's rights and free will, and that's a bad thing so you've got to go. Reminds me when Thor took over the world. He went through the same thing.
