mmm, I disagree to a little of your theory. Even if your supposition that 100% telepathy between members of a species is good, kind and full of rainbows and kittens, that doesn't change the fact that the rest of the universe is cold, callous, and would just as soon kill you as look at you. There are disasters. There are famines. There are problems with disease. There are overpopulation issues caused by entire planets full of people overflowing with thoughts of rainbows and kittens. So technology would still rise up to solve these problems, even if there were no wars and no conflicts whatsoever.

Of course, all this completely overlooks the Bablefish Paradox - that being that perfect communication creates more conflict rather than reduces it.
