General Information

Although we do not believe that the national space society is very useful for the actual realization of space colonization, their site contains a lot of interesting information regarding space colonization.

Political philosophy

Recommended reading, especially for US readers, about what we see as liberalism.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_republicanism

Recommended reading, especially for US readers, about what we see as republicanism.

This page is a very interesting article about classical liberalism and the article also states that classical liberalism and classical republicanism are NOT incompatible with each other, on the contrary. Although I don’t agree with it for 100%, it provides a good general idea where Republic of Lagrangia stands for.
