Im not sure if thats included in getting a CCDW license but it should be. Also even if that stuff was implemented theirs still no stopping people from getting guns illegally.

I didn't include the CCW, but that may just be Vermont bias. We don't require them here, and we have some of the lowest gun crime rates in the country

The musket was invented before the SCAR.
That doesn't mean the musket has won.

I think first person in space, first extraplanetary probes, first lunar rover, AND first mars landing before we even reached the moon wins the space race, bub.

So they finished the first three laps and stopped running, while America finished with a 4th lap.

Do you know why we stopped going to the moon? It was too expensive. The russians saw that, and figured "eh, we've done enough, let's stop throwing money at it". While we're on the subject, historically speaking, you do realize the whole point behind the Apollo program was to show off superior rocket technology in the world's biggest dick measuring contest, right? We didn't even send scientists teoil the last mission, the whole point was to show we could build rockets that could deliver a heavy payload literally anywhere. Get over it, we aren't in the space race any more, and considering Russia set about 90% of the firsts in space exploration, I think it's safe to say we didn't exactly win. First humans on the moon, vs first everything else. Figure it out. I don't give a shit anyways, nationalism is a stain on our existence when you consider we're squabbling over pebbles, when we can't even measure the true size of the universe around us. Just remember, borders are invisible from space

Doing it first doesn't mean you did it best.
We're stepping closer and closer to colonizing other planets.
#151 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
Still ignoring the fact that nationalism is really quite meaningless, I see. We shouldn't be trying to do this just for the good of one country, we need to explore for the good of all humanity

#152 - heartlessrobot (10/26/2015) [-]
I'd much rather my whole country flip the rest of the world the double bird as they rocket off into the stars, exploring the universe, than bring the conflict with them.
#153 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
Ignoring the fact that global cooperation in space exploration actually brings countries together towards a common goal, and played a part in ending the cold war. But yeah, keep telling yourself that America alone reigns supreme over all other nations, it's that kind of thinking that starts wars in the first place

I personally cannot see the benefit to having all the Israelites and Palestinians in the same space ship.
While we have billions of years before the sun goes out, we might only have a thousand before Yellowstone erupts. We need to get off this rock. But we can't take out problems with us. If leaving behind other nations means my descendants survive, and the human race continues, I'd prefer that. There are just too many people not ready for space travel. Look at the entirety of Africa. India. Israel and Palestine. Being on the same planet causes violence, these people would not survive being on the same ship together.
#157 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
To emphasize what I said earlier, joint scientific exploration has a way of bringing together the most unlikely of groups. Look at the US and Russia. Until Putin took power, we actually had a pretty good relationship going on after we started doing joint space missions together. And just because some countries have extremist groups doesn't mean those group[s represent the majority of that country. Most of the human race still wants to live together without conflict.
#155 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
So you're saying only the countries you feel deserve to survive should have the means to explore? that's eugenics on a global scale
User avatar
#156 - heartlessrobot (10/26/2015) [-]
The only countries that deserve to survive and explore are the ones that can do it themselves.
If we stay behind to help, we won't survive either.
#158 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
We're one fucking species, dude, people can get over their differences, it happens constantly worldwide. This is why nationalism is a stain on the human race, people somehow get this fucked concept that they're better than others just because they have a better situation. It doesn't work like that. You don't have some inherent right to do better than others just because you were born in a country that didn't even exist until 1776
User avatar
#159 - heartlessrobot (10/26/2015) [-]
I understand that. But there are people that are not putting aside their differences, and would rather blow the spaceship out of the sky via suicide bomber than let the people on there survive. So everyone has to be screened, and there will be people left behind because they are a danger.
#160 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
And that's why we don't let terrorists on spaceships. But you don't get to say one specific country gets to hold a monopoly on scientific exploration that benefits the entire human race, nobody has that right
User avatar
#161 - heartlessrobot (10/26/2015) [-]
And what about people that cannot sustain themselves?
That cannot and will not benefit their fellow people?
That live to just leech off of what is given to them, without working for it?
#164 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
On a side note, deep space exploration is too damn expensive for just one group or another to accomplish, we need global cooperation if we can hope to survive. Nationalism is not sustainable in scientific exploration, all it takes is one look at the world from orbit to put all that aside in a heartbeat. Pretty much every astronaut since the first soviet missions has said this after returning
User avatar
#165 - heartlessrobot (10/26/2015) [-]
That's because only scientists and trained astronauts have seen the world from space.
An African Warlord looking at the earth from space would only be changed for the worse.

And now we're back on this. You don't get to say who lives or dies, you're not the appointed judge of all humanity
#173 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
Ok, so now we're getting out of third world countries, and telling people in our own damn country they don't deserve to live. Not much better of an argument, buddy. Mainly because it ignores the fact that most of the people living off government assistance have no say over their situation. Are you seriously going to tell me someone who literally can't change their situation deserves to die because of it?
User avatar
#174 - heartlessrobot (10/26/2015) [-]
No, I'm saying people that don't try to change their situation don't.
#169 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
Ignoring, of course, the fact that your arguments have almost entirely been about preventing third world countries from being part of the international scientific community, based solely on geographical point of origin. Again, racist as shit
User avatar
#171 - heartlessrobot (10/26/2015) [-]
I'm basing it more on how they work in their country.
I believe there are people worth saving, no matter where. Like the boy in the African village who built a windmill, or the ones that actually plant the seeds given to them instead of eating it as grain.
Like the hard working North Korean people.
Not like people living off of benefits in a 1st world country without even trying for a job.
#167 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
And every African uis a warlord waiting to happen, so they don't deserve to be part of it? Now we're getting out of nationalism and straight into racism
User avatar
#170 - heartlessrobot (10/26/2015) [-]
No, they really aren't. But who are to deny someone access because of how they made their living?
#162 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
This isn't about survival, though, this is about pure scientific exploration that benefits all mankind. Besides which, you don't get to say someone else is less deserving of survival just because they were born in a shittier situation than you. If you think being born in a better situation makes you inherently more worthy of survival, you're what the human race is moving away from in the first place.

I think being able to work with your situation instead of sitting in a straw hut all day making babies because your other children starved to death.
No, it's not their fault their country sucks, but it's their fault for not trying to do anything about it.
#172 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
More than half the continent is covered in desert. What isn't is covered by dense rainforest, there's not much land for cultivation left out of all that. And what does grow, is almost instantly shipped out across the world to other countries, there's more than just shiny rocks coming out of Africa. They just live the way they have for thousands of years, because it's all they can afford. And we pay them next to nothing for labor, mines are basically almost slave camps these days.and that's not their doing, the mines and farms are owned by international corporations that leave almost nothing behind when they take the product.
#166 - phoenixactual (10/26/2015) [-]
So it's not the fault of the international banking system that drags third world countries deeper into debt whenever they have to get help from the international community? It's not because 90% of food crops grown in these countries get shipped across the world, leaving almost nothing for the native inhabitants, or the fact that the system is rigged to pull as many resources as possible from a region, while paying out as little as possible? Nah, it's the fault of the people living in countries that already barely have the natural resources to feed their own people, while getting robbed by exporters that pay next to nothing because it's cheap labor. This isn't their fault, the rest of the world is robbing these people blind at times. How can you say you deserve survival more than they, when they have no say whatsoever in their situation?

The only actual resources being taken from Africa are precious gems and such, which have no use in survival. They have stone and wood, yet live in mud and scrap.
Empires were built on countries with just as much or sometimes less.
