On principle we have no problem with receiving unsolicited articles from readers. However we do not accept everything we receive. Any submitted content should fit within the subject matter of this site.
Before submitting any unsolicited content, one should first consider the following rules:
First of all we will never pay anything for unsolicited content. And we definitely do not need ghost writers.
Secondly we do not publish articles which promote conspiracy theories.
Thirdly we also consider requests for sharing articles you have published elsewhere as submitting unsolicited contents.
Fourthly submitted contents should deal with the social or technological aspects of space settlement, within in the context of humanism, secularism and liberalism.
In order to prevent confusion we have decided to change the name of this site, currently Republic of Lagrangia. There are two reasons to reconsider a name change:
- The current name either suggest that we are either a micronation or a government in exile. We are neither.

We are considering the following names:
- The Lagrangian Republican Association
- The Lagrangian Humanist Republicans
- The Lagrangian Humanist Settlers Association
We would like to hear your opinion on this change.

We have understood quinoa, a so-called pseudo-grain, is a (nearly) complete source of protein as well a source of minerals including calcium. It appears that the protein composition of the food is comparable with that of milk, hence our first suggestion would be that quinoa is an excellent base for plant milk. Continue reading Quinoa
On this site we regularly discuss a wide range of legal concepts. However, we only do this for the purpose of providing a background for legal reforms to be implemented in future space settlements.
For this reason one cannot derive any rights from any discussion of legal concepts on this site. We do not intend to give legal advise in actual legal procedures in terrestrial nations.
Therefore we do not accept any responsibility for possible damage resulting in the use of our articles involving legal concepts in actual legal procedures.
Further we will not deal with any request for legal advise submitted through our contact form.
