Not a bad find. You're talking nationally, I'm talking humanely. Whitey/whiney on the moon has nothing to do with it.

It might not be space vs food per se but it's (take-your-pick) vs human decency. Yes, naive I might be but I do not see the importance of shouting 'excelsior!' for landing on a speck of spacedust whilst allowing individuals of your own species to die of malnourishment, preventable disease and pollution.
