Governance on Mars


  • Paksoy, H. B.


Whomever paid for the Mars trip (and related preparations) will get to determine who will govern Mars, and how? Or, will that be the case? For example, on what principles of governance? Is it going to be a democracy (whatever that may have meant), dictatorship of spacesuits, or inmates of the bubble abodes? Besides, will the payment be entirely in monetary terms? Who paid for the Glorious Revolution (1688)? American Revolution (1776)? French Revolution (1789)? Russian Revolution (which one?)? And a number of similarly momentous ones, some much older that those listed above?
