    That isn’t what the article said.

    U.S. Politics: Attaquer son cul orange!

    I don’t want it to be “the only game in town”. But I also don’t wanted private exploration banned in favor of only State sponsored space exploration.

    That too.

    I don’t disagree. But impeding those who attempt to help seems a poor idea as well. You appear, please correct me if I’m wrong, to want to impede private space exploration.

    We all “stand on the shoulders of giants”.

    That’s fair. Without Musk, can we say with confidence that SpaceX would still exist? This whole discussion seems to be a derivation of the “great person” idea of history about which there has always been a great deal of debate.

    How can we know what they would have done without Government pressure? These companies don’t exist in a black box where Government and Public pressure don’t exist. Regardless here’s an article from 10/2018 (cnn) listing private actors fighting climate change: https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/09/business/climate-change-companies/index.html I still don’t think relying upon the State to push space exploration is a reasonable or efficient long term strategy. SpaceX has done much more than NASA has in decades (plural) in under a decade. That’s not a bad thing.

    I’m not sure I understand your point. Private enterprises can and should take a hand in curbing human impacts on Climate Change even if Governments are unwilling to take such actions. Is the fact that some private actors will act responsibly even without coercion from the State a bad thing? The State is not the only mechanism by with things can change.

    Government’s abandon exploration efforts. See, the Apollo program. Individuals have dreams. Elected governments move on when the public gets bored. I have always thought we needed Private enterprise to get to space and stay there.

    WoIaF versus the Silmarillion

    Sometimes I want a steak cooked over applewood.

    I do own copies of both.

    Look one post up for the definitive answer to your question.

    WoIaF versus the Silmarillion

    They are completely different types of works. You’re comparing apples to steaks.

    Why cueing (MSV) is a poor way to teach children to read

    So, teaching kids to be subpar readers is good enough? The generalized lowering reading statistics is not a good thing and claiming subpar reading is “good enough” really misses the point. You need to be a pretty good reader to be a good critical thinker.
