Re: Using illegal goods to make mars profitable - The Martian Mafia???

Well anyway the countries with the most settlers on Mars will eventually decide what business mentality will be the most dominant.

No let me rephrase that, it will be the factions with the best connections to earth (knowledge, money, high-tech gadgets, people), best schools (uni's), most stable leaderships, Mars specific knowledge, freedoms, entertainment and those that have the money to make things happen, that will dominate Mars’s culture.

So depending on what faction (American, European, Russian, Chinese, Indian) is able to meet these requirements they will decide from their respective cultures what’s moral and what’s not.

The Russians may like the idea of anonymous accounts, perhaps the others not. The Chinese may like a socialist government, the others may not. The Americans may like personal weapons such as guns and a decentralized style of government, the others may not.

Waht? Tehr's a preveiw buottn?

Human stem cells would be a political battle now that Roe vs Wade land scape has changed.
