Subject: RE: BS: India moon landing
Well I wasn't bitching about India spending money. I was trying to say that any country which spends huge amounts on nuclear weapons or space exploration (or which indulges huge corporations or tax-dodgers, etc) should have a think about the horrific inequality they simultaneously perpetuate. And that, without exception, is every country that does those things. I'm in favour of space exploration, if the furtherance of scientific knowledge is the motivation. But if a "space race" is the motivation, well I don't want to know.
