"We Only Have One Planet"?

Really, Jeremy? No one is known to live on any of the others.

We have to look after this one, just as we have to look after the corner of Africa where we first emerged. We still live there. But we now live everywhere else, too.

Space exploration depends on the highest possible view of the good, and therefore also the frankest possible recognition of the harm, that can be done by human beings in general and by the State in particular. Including in opening up commercial opportunities to which the same applies.

It also necessitates, not only the very big vision, but also the very long view, and an uncompromising internationalism. All in all, it is thoroughly Corbynesque. Meaning that it will be mocked to scorn until it "represents the new common sense of our time". The first of those stages will be painfully long.

Another hung Parliament is coming, however, and our people need to hold the balance of power in it. My crowdfunding page is here, or email davidaslindsay@hotmail.com for other options. That address accepts PayPal.
