Oh come on! Please don't tell me that you are one of those people who would
rather stay down here and help people before going out into space cause
I've got news for you buddy! Going out into space will allow the creation
of technologies to support more people and generate more food and solutions
to population problems. We earned our status, lets not give it away like a
bunch of socialists! We Are Libertarians! (Sorry, I just couldn't help it)

Uhh, you're right but I'm feeling a bit patriotic at the moment. Besides, I
should credit the entire generation of people who helped hype up the space
race to allow the landing. Without hype, nothing usually ever gets
accomplished. You NEED media hype to stir up action and motivate people. In
blatant anarchy people always rise to power to lead the masses. There must
always be a king of the mountain aka leader in the area of fresh new ideas
not necessarily having power but often does acquire it.
