Hi  Steven,

Maybe those fears are misplaced, although the public might be
allowed to think that.

From occasional news releases by government approved
science/corporates I get the impression a good deal of
investment is already going into things like future Mars
projects - and that it won't be threatened by national economic
woes. You can provide your own reasons why that should be so.

BTW - I put one of them on-line a few years ago: that Mars is a
logical base for making and assembling Sun-power capture
shields. It's too dangerous to have such big things between
Earth and the Sun, because accidents happen. Now though, I'm
also weighing a reason suggested by other folk - of Mars being
used as a 'bunker' or 'hideaway'.

As far as SETI's 'real objectives' are concerned, look around us
for motives - our Earth is depleted of resources and heavily
polluted, plus the population isn't taking kindly to being made
slaves - in all countries.

So maybe our international 'rulers' are trying to beat Lenin's
forecast (made to H G Wells in 1920), one last time.

Apparently Lenin said - "I understand this myself when I read
your novel The Time Machine. All human conceptions are on a
scale of our planet. They are based on the pretension that the
technical potential, although it will develop, will never exceed
the 'terrestrial limit'. If we succeed in establishing
interplanetary communication, all our philosophical, moral and
social views will have to be revised. In this case, the
technical potential, become limitless, would impose the end of
the role of violence as a means and method of progress."

Only for 'progress' you should always read 'acquisition'.


Cheers

Ray
