If we colonize Mars, all Earth flags should be banned from being planted in space. Why? Because if this happens, countries will be on other planets too. I know flags have been planted on the Moon, but let's set that aside. I think that Mars should be ruled by just one ruler. It obviously doesn't work on Earth, because we constantly rage wars against each other. We're all one species, if we were to plant flags, we should just all agree on an Earth flag or something. I wanna hear your opinion, my topic is pretty short, but I feel like that's how space should be done. Also, don't give me that BS of "We should fix problems here on Earth first" Well guess what? That's not going to happen, because like my point, we're all split off into different countries, and no one wants to help each other, plus Earth has reached it's point of no return, we can't repair it, we're getting too over populated, we're having less and less educated people, it's like a crumpled piece of paper, you can try and get the wrinkles out, but you won't make it like new again.

No, Aldnoah Zero is just an anime lol I do love anime, don't get wrong, but it's not accurate at all, there are no explosions in space, no sound and anything fired out of a cannon would push your ship far off, lol

Well, I guess that sounds pretty cool, lol but I mean, we should only be in space, if we're going to be one race, or united under one flag lol

I don't understand. Your statement is untrue in the face of history. There are those that colonize, those that conquer, and those that do nothing. If the world wants to be together for colonization, then it had better find a way to pony up some cash. You think the Chinese wont drop a flag on Mars if they go it alone? Those who don't contribute shouldn't get the glory or the resources. If everyone wants a piece, then they better contribute.

Yeah, I get what you're saying, but I guess I was really asking, if you think that it shouldn't be that way? Obviously those that could go to Mars, would or could have contributed in some way to be on their way there in the first place.

Shoulda woulda coulda. Fact is the second someone (SpaceX) lands on mars they are throwing down an American flag. Just because the land is not originally theirs has never stopped a country from taking it - and it never will. Besides, the Earths population will level out around the ~9 billion mark and there are more people educated today then ever before - in both percentage and raw figures. In fact, not only are more people educated - they are educated better, with higher grades being awarded on average.

As far as I see it humans will fight and kill each other until their is something we can fight together against - saying we are all human is pretty meaningless unless we have something of similar status to compare against.

You can say all that, but we're still going to do it

Any Martian colonies will be dependant on the country who set up the colony. Even the US colonists needed some support from the European homelands. You can't breathe or grow anything on Mars. There's no ecological cycle. Growing food is going to need sending soil there as well as stores of microbes.

Mars colonies aren't going to be colonies as we know them. They will basically be Mining Outposts, assuming they produce anything useful at all, or Research stations.

Actually, research station is a decent analogy. Think of the Arctic and Antarctic research bases. They can't be self-sufficient and the people are rotated out regularly. They need food and other materials transported in and you have to have special gear to go outside. There's no way you could put a viable colony on the Antarctic landmass.

I'm sorry, Mars isn't going to be the second USA and we're not going to "export imperialism" into space. There's no way to do that at our current or likely near future tech level. Flags will go and they'll be like flag flown from people's houses rather than a statement of "we is kangz", and no doubt corporate logos will go as well.
