#49 / Going To The Moon

There is one problem with "going to the moon" as a major national objective. Some other person goes, and we just watch. Ditto with space exploration. Great and spectacular as it all is, we are not required (or even permitted) to be directly and personally involved. 

My definition of a "national purpose" worth talking about requires that many of us be permitted and/or required to participate in achieving that national purpose in our individual capacities. We reconcile the "individual" and "collective" sides of who we actually "are" by having common purposes that demand personal and individual involvement.

"Going to the moon" turns us into spectators.
