Mars Memes

Sometimes when I think back to the 1970’s and how I thought about outer space and humanity’s exploration of it I feel a bit sad for how naive I was, and how that innocence has been lost. I read a lot of science fiction, Robert Heinlein was one of my favorites.

“When any government, or church for that matter, undertakes to say to it’s subjects, this you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motive.” Robert Heinlein

The last twenty years have been bittersweet, I got my science fiction solar system back, but have had to live with the knowledge that those in power want to keep it for themselves.
