Thanks for visiting our blog!
This blog is aimed at the formation of a independent secular, humanist republic in Space, called the Humanist Republic of Mordan. This new Republic will be based on classical republicanism and classical liberalism. Important to note is that we are not related the so called “Republican” Party from the USA (we prefer to call this non-republican party the GOP), neither do we support their policies.
Republic of Lagrangia differs from other “space” advocacy groups in several aspects. First of all, for us space colonization is a mean to create a better society, not just an end in itself. Secondly we reject begging for tax payers money, we believe that through crowd sourcing and good investments it will be possible to establish an independent nation in outer space by 2035.
On this blog we will publish several posts on topics related to Space Colonization, not only on technical topics, but also on political and social issues related to Space Colonization. Actually we will spent most attention to the latter issues, since there are on technical issues of Space Colonization already many sources on the internet, and whenever needed, we will refer to them. Nonetheless we will pay attention to those technical issues.
Even if you are not into space colonization, there are posts which might interest you. Since many of the topics we discuss are related to the influence of technology on society, they are often relevant for terrestrial politics as well.
