Jim Davidson discusses how his commercial space company and project were crushed by the state and NASA. Origins of his project, goals, and big names involved. We discuss the NASA / Military Industrial Complex link and the US Government sham of “privatization” which is just more corporatism and NASA monopoly. Jim has words about the Soviet space system vs US programs, historically and now. The viability of getting into space, starting on mars, living in an asteroid belt. Jim makes it clear, getting into space has been solved, moving on from there we can do.
Jim mocks those that would liken space-fanboys to other forms of “Digital-Escapism”. We get excellent economic and physics based reasoning why Deep Ocean-steading is impractical and undesirable when compared to space alternatives.
We start to talk about what is needed to be done to move into space, Jim emphasizes: There are no technical limitations for going into space now. Jim recommends a book the interested can read with a very useful scenario, by science fiction, fantasy writer and agorist Victor Koman called Kings of the High Frontier.
The only problem we have now are Government force crushing entrepreneurs ready to move on this.
We get into the reasons why its important to have a frontier as an option, to use, and to force competitive jurisdictions to treat their residents more like customers rather than pigs in the pen. Passports, borders, travel/work restrictions as part of tyrannical global system of slavery.
Jim makes the point that one reason we are building the Second Realm is because it works as a frontier, where many forms of communication, trade, business can take place in this new electronic frontier that is impossible or deathly dangerous to do in current meatspace. It is a fascinating show, sobering, a little disturbing, yet encouraging and very thought provoking.
