Subject: Lunar War
Quote by Joanne Gabrynowicz:
"As I tell my students, when humans have a conflict there are only two options: to reach agreement or to fight," Gabrynowicz says. "Even agreeing to disagree or doing nothing simply puts these options further into the future; it does not create additional options. At the level of nations, these options are law or war."

This quote, especially the bit I highlighted, is fascinating to me.  It's very true: when someone does something objectionable, be it on a national or personal scale, your options are law or war.  Come up with an agreement or don the gloves.

The context in this case is a looming land grab in the arctic and its potential to be a harbinger for similar conflicts in space.

The squabbling will be a prelude to — and even set the tone for — eventual sovereignty claims on the moon.

There's talk of several nations setting up permanent settlements on the moon by 2030.  Fuck I hope I'm alive to see that.
BLEARGH
