Jessy, if I was indifferent to the topic I never would've bothered to comment on it. lol I don't think you know what that word means.
I pointed out Vago's ego because it's indicative of this infecting, collective perspective(he's not alone)that I've seen quite often with people who don't understand the true goals and potential for space travel and therefore have these very naive opinions on the matter that adversely affect public opinion, which have the potential to affect not only governmental policies, but the methods in which private companies can go about these endeavors.
They're people who really don't understand the ultimate purpose of space travel. Therefore, they sling out these vague philosophical musings about 'Man shouldn't leave Earth because we're still flawed'. This makes sense... if you're writing Twilight Zone fan fiction. It just irks me when I read those kinds of unrealistic, sheltered, quaint comments that are based on a lack of basic of information from people who only have a passing concern when space travel, and ultimately colonization of other planets and the exploitation of resources derived from celestial bodies like meteors and non-Earth planets is crucial to our prolonged survival as a species.
We can't afford to be held back by ignorance.
