Oh, yeah, population control.  Alex Jones, baby!
Ironically many people are turned on by population control discussions.

How do you propose to bring about population control with the Jewish, Black and lower class communities? That should be amusing to watch. People are having nervous breakdowns about politicians saying they think we should enforce our immigration laws.

People tend to forget that church folk like to breed.  I say population control starts with our Catholic and Mormon communities  :P

There becomes less of a reason to go the more technologically advanced you become. Within 10-20 years, the technology will surpass the ability of a human to do research. At that point it just becomes an expensive and dangerous vacation to go there personally. 10-20 years past that, humans begin to truly merge with their technology and space exploration stops being relevant.

Speaking of the future of medicine, I'm in between doctors at the moment and can't get into my new doctor for several weeks.  In the meantime a prescription I take daily was out of refills and I didn't want to go back to my old doctor.  So instead of missing several doses I discovered telemedicine.  I downloaded an app on my iPad and filled out a couple of forms and within a couple of minutes I was video chatting with a licensed doctor who was able to write me a prescription refill to bridge me to my doctor's appointment.  He sent it electronically to my pharmacy and I picked up the next day.  It felt like Star Trek.

I wouldn't have even thought about that, good to know.

Uh yeah, so why not cut back some of the $ TRILLIONS of dollars the military-industrial complex is sucking out of the economy?   We can make huge advancements in space travel with that money.

It's a question of choice.  Kill people, or work together and explore space, at the same time advancing the human race.

Let's cut the bullshit.  The money is there.  It's just a question of how it's spent.

You know the thing that scares me is every time you watch a prison documentary. To a man, every one of those fucked up losers talk about how they want to get out and change their life so they can be with their multiple numbers of kids. I find it disturbing this lower criminal class breeds like rabbits and is rotting our country from the inside out, but what you going to do?

They're working on a cheaper way. If they can spend half a trillion a year on the military, they can find $20 billion for a Mars mission, especially if China or Russia get the US into a Mars race.

Statistically, those are the folks who take care of their kids, though. Population gain isn't a problem, population gain when parents aren't tending to their children is. There are many parts of the world that actually struggle with maintaining their population growth. Russia, for example.

Because that's not how America works. If the elite in this country aren't getting the majority of the money and we start doing radical hippy shit like space exploration, what's the point?

Huh?  Just curious, but are you American?  If you are, you wouldn't be if a certain group of people didn't set up a project to discover America.

Humans will always reach out into space.  It's a normal function of our nature.  Humans are EXPLORERS.  Space exploration will always be relevant, if anything becoming more and more relevant over the next few decades.

That's my point.  It's a choice.  Right now the sheeple are going along with the Dick Cheneys of the world.

They're making the wrong choice.

Which of course begs the question of why would you build a dome to hold in an atmosphere? He's getting too dated. He should try to let that stuff rest and focus on being a radio host or one of these nights he'll get his ass handed to him by a futurist. I don't really want to see that to be honest, I think the guy's show is great, but he's wide open.

I have my doubts RCH has read much SF past 1977. Heck, I doubt he's read much SF past 1967!

Ideas like nanotech, cyberpunk, or the Singularity seem alien to him.

I am American and this continent is nothing like Mars and it's not 1492. You do not need to explore space when you reach superintelligence and post-humanity, and fully understand how the universe works and can model it, then there is no point in exploring it.

We won't be human in 50 years. We will be post-human.

That's possible.  Not guaranteed.  You talk about it like it's a 100% given.  It's not.

And where do religions get their new members?  Places that the crazies and addicts go. 

A mass die-off is needed.
