Hey Dakuma, good questions there. In my opinion, the beginning of colonization will probably set the bar for a while. In my view, it can go three
ways. Military, scientific, or commercial or a combination of the three with a dominating influence by one over the others. At this point, its tough
to tell. I'd say it will begin as scientific and slowly become commercial in nature meaning resort type trips as well as mineral mining. I'm not
sure where military will fit in but they always find a niche. As for politics, whether at our current national level or more likely at the
interpersonal professional level, its bound to play a part. By that I mean, be nice to the guy who decides things or you're likely going to suffer.
Thats the local level.
In contrast to what some have thought, I would say money or wealth in some form will be , as always, the biggest factor. It would be nice to think we
could escape greed by moving to the moon or space station but I think its fantasy at best.
