The Olympics is more open than most other arenas of human competition, by allowing people to compete on the basis of their proven ability.

I believe the runners in 1968 was making a point that most aspects of human society also needed to allow people to participate on this same basis.

Mr. Brunsridge states that this is something that no one can understand. However, what he didn't understand is that by sticking their hands up they were essentially saying that being able to compete in the Olympics isn't enough to ensure an equal quality of life for all people. There are so many other aspects of participation throughout society impacting the quality of life. Since 1968, US society has made considerable changes. In 1968, society was still extremely limited on the bases of people's race categories. They seemed to feel that someone needed to say or do something since US society was living in an extreme contradiction.

What's strange is, it was ok for Jesse Owens to make astonishing wins in front of Hitler, but people got so upset about the 1968 Olympics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCmvDwDocrw

Peter Norman is the hero of this film? Wasn't he just caught in the middle? I need to see this film. It seems so interesting.

Norman stood in solidarity with the Americans, wearing a human-rights badge.  He suffered retaliation by his federation, who didn't send him to Munich in 1972.  His gesture was extremely powerful, downright historic.

Such a wonderful testament to the power of outer space development to allow a bridge to overcome political conflict: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/iraq-kurdish-peshmerga-drive-back-isis-assault-near-erbil-allowing-air-strikes-begin-1488480
As humankind moves forward into our destiny to become a spacefaring civilization, these types of collaborative projects are likely to take precedence over routine political conflict.

 Compare this to Jesse Owens' win, while Hitler is in the audience watching: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCmvDwDocrw

Wow...so Peter Norman also gave up everything to stand in support of Tommy Smith and John Carlos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yTLT0mv90w

Humans are natural born explorers, we charge into unchartered territory to seek out the unknown, we have mapped nearly every inch of Mother Earth and left tracks on the moon. But to set foot on another planet, to travel beyond our solar system, that’s the dream of the future. This presentation deals with quest of new worlds and the fate of humanity. Sounds like a job for explorers of tomorrow, but the search of another earth is happening right no...

The elected officials asked really good questions. The general public and Congress just don't yet know what space experts know. This shows that there is a need to help further educate Congress about the key issues: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci8pJXrW34M

Story
Tagline
Visualizing a world where every person can make a name for themselves contributing to outer space development
Introduction

I've always wanted to be a professor, international scholar and author. I waited until late in life to pursue these dreams. Now I teach for 3 universities - Webster University Worldwide, Washington University and Northern Arizona University. I'm currently traveling around telling people about outer space development (Washington, DC, Beijing, Houston, St. Louis, Little Rock, Los Angles, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec...)

I've been blending insights from critical theory and the critique of colonization and development scenarios with an eye towards contributing to future global equality. I believe that outer space will soon be development and everyone can play a role in the new opportunities arising with the newer intelligent space telescopes locating exoplanets and new star systems, asteroid mining operations, humankind will soon enter a true space age. Newly constructed spaceports, advanced stages of space travel (private spaceships and starships) space mining, space law and space habitation architecture are all indicators that a SciFi reality is soon to come.

So far, libraries and universities in Armenia, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Australia, China,  Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia,  New Zealand,  Virgin Islands, British, Thailand, India,  Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Israel, South Africa, Namibia, Turkey, Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Russia, Italy, Slovenia, Serbia, Finland, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Sweden, Spain, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, United Kingdom, Scotland, Guyana, Ireland, Canada and Mexico have obtained copies of the book. Libraries and universities in a wide variety of states in the US have also obtained a copy of this important book. http://www.worldcat.org/title/outer-space-development-international-relations-and-space-law-a-method-for-elucidating-seeds/oclc/830167722&referer=brief_results
