If India can colonize the Moon by 2020, start mining the exotic materials up there and perhaps even start power generation on the moon using Helium3 in 50 years time, then perhaps the price of hunger is not so pressing in the present.

So, I'm just wondering how many other people are in favour of raping the moon of it's natural resources just like we've done with the earth? Will it be the pattern of mankind for us to travel to different moons and planets draining these places and leaving them bereft of everything once we've had our way?
