Mommy Professor’s Space Deprogramming

There is a lot of talk about privatizing space.

Holy Private Enterprise will get out there instead of government programs.

The people who insist on this are the same ones who met at conventions to push the space program with General Whozits as keynoter while the real subcommittee dealing with the real budget were snipping NASA out.

While they are showing how they are both pro-Space and pro-Private Enterprise For All Mankind — Hooray! — they are outnumbered a hundred to one, minimum, by those who are already putting together the regulations that will keep us out of space.

For every bit of promotion at their get-togethers, there are a hundred professionals demanding that we not pollute space. There are groups who would never put it this way, but they are demanding the rights of Native Spacians.

In 1969 the astronauts went up alone. Today they would have to have a thousand of Mommy Professor-trained bureaucrats for every astronaut, minimum.

As always you simply cannot put this into context without Mantra Thinking: We are dealing with an established religion.

When they want money for their own priests rather than for science, one of their continuing lines is, “Man has no right to interfere with the Works of God.”

Except for the substitution of the word “Nature” for “God,” do you actually see the slightest difference between today’s established religion and the Traditional Values.

Professional conservatives make their living by making the same statements in terms of the older established faith. To me, they are MORE offensive than liberals because they use the name of God,

You can’t blaspheme Nature.

The space program died under the ministrations of conservatives. Even Reagan, the former governor of California, regarded space spending as he did any other government expenditures except those cute boys in uniform.

To keep us out of space, you simply regulate any private program out of existence, just as they did atomic power and as they will any technology beyond the windmill.

And if someone can produce a windmill scare, there could be a hundred thousands bureaucrats in it for them
