2010 and Space Exploration

Where's our moon colony? Where's our Mars colony? Where's our fully inhabitable space station - aka Babylon 5? Where's our exploration into the deeper reaches of the solar system and beyond? Why are we not reaching "where no human has gone before"?

Answer: A huge portion of money is being poured by the world's governments into the sinkhole of the military industrial complex.

The tax dollars of the most affluent societies pay for war, for killing, not for the advancement of science and technology that would benefit all. Think healthcare, education, a food distribution network that stamps out world hunger. These things are possible, but not when war and aggression is the typical answer to dissent.
