So .... who 'owns' the moon??
Does the UN have authority to determine who can and can't own property on the moon?
Does anyone really have to recognize the pronouncements of the UN? They are a paper tiger.
Is banning private property ownership on the moon anti-capitalism and counterproductive to enterprising individuals and entrepreneurship? Afterall,
if someone is smart enough to figure out how to have private flights back and forth from earth to the moon, shouldn't they be able to start a
business doing so?
OR is banning private property ownership on the moon anti-commercialism and the moon should be preserved, much like the national parks are in the
The current status of the moon is that no United Nations nation-members can appropriate it for themselves. No country can claim it to be part of them
..... it can't be America or Russia or China ... that kind of thing. This proposal goes further. To put it in perspective ... It would be like
the Kings of Europe saying that no one could live in the newly discovered Americas and own their own property. It's a massive land grab attempt by
the scientist in the name of the (corrupt cesspool) United Nations. But is it a good idea or not?
Planetary Scientist Wants UN To Ban Private Ownership of
A planetary scientist wants the United Nations to draw up a law that states the moon cannot be owned, according to the UK Telegraph.
The legal status of the moon is currently defined by the 1967 Outer Space Treaty of the United Nations in which it says all UN member states are
"prohibited from appropriating the moon."
Ian Crawford, professor of planetary science at Birkbeck College in London, who proposed the idea, warned that as international space exploration
increases and corporations aim to mine for minerals and commercial airways fly tourists to the earth's satellite, it would be lunar lunacy not to
draw up a new UN treaty that includes private organizations.
