An Entirely Serious Proposition
A campaign against modern human interstellar space travel research #CAMHISTR
I think it is extremely unlikely that humans will successfully travel beyond our solar system. The scales of space-time will make it impossible in the period of time that humans are likely to be ‘successfully’ on earth.
But, just in case, we should have a campaign against modern human interstellar space travel research (#CAMHISTR).
Modern humans have despoiled this planet, are violent and destructive, and should be confined to poor old earth. If there are other amazing planets out there, in other solar systems, we should not be allowed anywhere near them.
Many (most?) sci-fi narratives are about terrible monsters ravaging across inter-galactic space (with plucky humans taking them on). But if we do get to travel in space we are likely to be the monsters – we ARE the monsters.
Modern humans have travelled across the spaces of the seas and wildernesses to other worlds and been the alien from hell, and ushered in the era of ‘ecocide’. Let’s not allow this to repeat itself.
