This was inspired by the GQ thread “Does the US own the moon”
Soneone in that thread mentioned that as soon as an inexpensive method of space travel was found, space would degenerate into a Wild Wild West sort of place.
My question is more down to earth…(pun intended) What would happen if someone invented a truly cheap method of transport…something along the lines of the matter transporter thingy from the movie “The Fly”…the 80’s one. Would it be widly distributed, or supressed by the Govt?
I’m not suggesting a consiprecy or anything, but think about what something like that would do to our economy?..What are your thoughts on this?..And are there other things you can think of that may benifite are race/planet, but would disrupte our economic systems?
I haven’t lost my mind, I have a tape backup around somewhere.
