Space Exploration and Social Distress
Whitey on the Moon by Gil Scot-Heron
Dear President Obama, and Administration,
It is just plain wrong! to spend so much on space exploration in the face of so many problems—so many suffering people—here on planet Earth.
Additionally, all space exploration which is geared toward national dominance is fundamentally anathema to the goal of peace.
Attitudes and behaviors that are rooted in dominance ought to be discarded and go along with full apologies to the afflicted (which includes everyone.)
Thank you for seriously considering my comments, and for taking them to heart.
Yours Truly, Berd
