The US Space Program Reeks of Military Hero Worship and State Welfare Waste
Recently I visited the Kennedy Space Center near Orlando, Florida. I was immediately struck by the rampant military hero worship that was rife in its halls. The space race was steeped in war between rivaling nation States. It was born out of the massive violence and bloodshed that only nation States can produce. Only those with military parasite experience are eligible to participate as a hallowed astronaut.
Putting a man in space or sending a man to the moon is illustrative of the ability of the State to waste immeasurable sums of currency, most ordinary people can only conceive of in their dreams, on boondoggle projects that neither improve the lives of its citizens nor improve the world. It only succeeds in further impoverishing the hard working individual who is already suffering via monetary inflation, rising prices, and a collapsing currency.
The space program is just another tragic example of the broken window fallacy at work. Many of its proponents focus on the many “achievements” of the space program as proof of its necessity, the seen. It is true there are many positive endeavors one might use stolen funds for, however this does not alter the initial immorality that it all originates with the initiation of force that comprises the State. The unseen is what truly breaks my heart. The billions of dollars in stolen funds it takes to build, transport, and launch a rocket or space shuttle will never justify the annihilated potential of robbing millions of hard working human beings.
