    I believe fusion can provide for the scale economies, so vital for more developed political-economies.

    You ever hear that socialism fails and the only way to even make the model even remotely successful is to steal, cull and purge those you stole from?

    Without a profit motive, all your grand ideas will remain a file in some engineer's computer. A grand idea that goes nowhere.

    There would not be capitalism without motive for profit and there is not laziness in capitalism because laziness contradicts capitalism....

    I believe it is only laziness which prevents the private sector from going to the moon.

    No, it's government - not only that but lack of funds.

    Going to the moon is easy, yet getting to the moon both safely and affordable is the problem....

    Socialism already went there and back due to a "work ethic" not a profit motive.

    You mean collapsed right?

    Oh there was motive and profit there with the Russians.... Go read about the missing cosmonauts - the USSR used pilots as fodder.

    You see - what you don't know is that 75% of the Russian space program defected to the United States because they weren't acknowledged - that - and if they didnt tow the line of the "fatherland (ov) they would be crushed like bugs....

    To this day Russia has never released the identities of those involved in their space program...

    Right, that's one way to encourage job creation.
