>going to space is pointless. Redistribute the wealth
And this is why space exploration has stagnated in the last few decades. Imagine if our species was this obsessive about faster than lightspeed travel, instead of being a bunch of ignoramuses who don't know how many genders there are.
Either way, the 'anti-space' mentality rather makes ense. Why spend a finite amount of money on simply exploring the unknown when we could instead pu that money in solving the problems we have today? Scientific stagnation is a small price in the pursuit of basic huma needs.
Then again, that above argument is based on 'why help the rich get richer if the poor are getting poorer?'
While the reaction on furry twitter is being conveyed in the most retarded way possible, using the same old pop-socialism arguments, I do think there is a small kernel of a point here that I kind of agree with. Not "all space travel is pointless", no that's fucking retarded, but the new generation of space travel pushed by modern rocket companies (SpaceX, Blue Origin, etc) does have a shitty side to it in the form of space tourism, which I genuinely think is nothing more than a waste of money for rich people to show off how rich they are.
There is a fundamental difference between vanity space tourism and actual research-focused missions, and I'm not impressed in the slightest by some kid getting a ride on a rocket because he was born to filthy rich parents. Someone who has studied and worked their whole life, to become the best they can in a scientific field and training to become an astronaut, who knows, maybe even contribute to the betterment of all humanity back on Earth as space-focused research projects have advanced many fields of science. Doing that kind of work with your life is incredibly impressive and respect worthy because it takes a huge amount of intellectual and physical effort.
This furfag has done none of that so while the idiots on twitter calling him out are annoying, I can't blame them for not being impressed with his bragging about becoming an astronaut when he's done nothing of the sort to deserve such. What do you think a child of rich parents who decides to become a furry of all things is like? My money is entirely on "insufferable degenerate cunt". Furfag rich kid brags about a ride to space being paid for by mommy and daddy, is not the kind of person I'm going to kneejerk defend just because autists on twitter hate him as well. It's pretty easy to hate everyone involved in this honestly.
