  1. Socialism, like other ideologies, will be permitted off planet. But socialist space colonies will doubtless languish

    Much like on Earth, Socialist colonies will start by taking over existing colonies. But maybe not always as many of the people making the space age happen lean a little toward the commie end of things, in which case, we would see fascistic technocrat colonies.

    What form would the 2nd amendment take in space; guns, bladed weapons, zappers?

    1. Any sane colony is going to take very, very good care about who it lets in. It’s bad enough living around crazies on Earth, but when some crazy person can let all the air out or build a killer virus and spread it around, open colonies won’t last long.

    2. Drone operated electric drill or oxy/acetylene cutting torch. On the moon a weapon of mass destruction.

    Teensy quibble: Guatemala is a signatory to the Moon Treaty but *not* to the OST. Which is weird, but I’m sure there’s an explanation.
