Mars 2030

March 1, 2021

Is just the carrot date
To keep Americans
Asleep and dreaming
That one day very soon
They can escape the
Hell they have created
Regardless the cost
Anybody else check out
The billions of dollars*
Projected to be wasted
In colonizing near space
In the scheme of things
Mars is very closely near
A simple search engine
Search will reveal how far
Away that goal is reachable
One just has to scrutinize
The use of lofty language to
Recognize its forecast as
Formidable and false like
The cryogenic hibernation
Required for the length
To be traveled has not been
Tested much beyond theory
Let alone Iegal and liable
Meanwhile the boys
With the toys will play with
Their rockets at great expense
Polishing them to no avail
Save a load landing somewhere
Burning through resources
Chipping away the atmosphere
As society desperate to escape
Its dereliction of duties to
Serve each other wants to
Go away and start over till
Earth heals itself ** so the
Neo Martians can escape
Back to this planet when that
One suffers human ruin
“It’s just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.”
Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.”
– Bill Hicks
The planet will be here for a long, long, long time after we’re gone and it will heal itself, it will cleanse itself ’cuz that’s what it does. It’s a self-correcting system. The air and the water will recover, the earth will be renewed
I think we’re part of a greater wisdom than we’ll ever understand, a higher order, call it what you want. You know what I call it? The Big Electron.
The Big Electron. Woooohhhh, woooohhhh, woooohhhh. It doesn’t punish, it doesn’t reward, it doesn’t judge at all. It just is, and so are we, for a little while.”

– George Carlin
