True... This is why I think it's important we get ourselves organized real quickly. We need say in the U.N. in my opinion, in order to internationally condemn any nations that are pushing this narrative of another Space Race. It is much like the time Humans had a chance to denuclearize the planet. Unfortunately. Because one group refused to give up nukes, all other nations saw this as fair game, and nuclear arms are now in surpluses around the globe, and a major factor in which Earth faces total extinction nearly every month. Space is no different. If we fail to exert our moral monarchy over the world, we fall victim at losing out our sole objective, "prevent earthly conflicts from reaching putter space". And we have have to act very quickly. If we fail, I can honestly say Humanity is doomed. But we can't achieve our goals with military, and guns. We must focus on where the rest of the world is lacking. I believe that's relating to important resources needed to achieve space hegemony, which is Cyber Security, and Quantum Physics. We must think outside of the box on this one. Guns are not going to cut it.
