FUTURE SPACE SETTLEMENTS WILL WORK AS CONFEDERACIES PART 1. Our show discusses the politics, the economics and the technology of space advocacy. It is time to discuss the other big question: how should humans govern and organize their social structures in future space settlements. There has been, we assess, an implied assumption that since science is enabling such settlements, that human systems would be top down, based on both authority and scientific competency. But not so fast! The private sector will invest, and be major stakeholders. The rule of law, will demand the courts and the legal system be transposed onto those settlements. Finally, if the settlements are to attract a diverse range of settlers needed to make life tolerable and whole, some democratic freedoms will surely be expected and used as enticements. Just as the founders of America, grappled these questions, we bring the modern reader to those issues, in part one of this series. This show, like all our shows, will be packed with research. Unlike what we recommend here on earth, this show will advance WHY A CONFEDERACY WILL BE DESIREABLE IN FUTURE SPACE SETTLEMENTS. Join K Leslie Graves in American and co-host Sharlene Lopez in Australia as we tackle to critical issues of the next generation of exploration.
