In my view, it is absolutely vital that humanity ventures to mars, and sets up permanent civilizations on it, as soon as possible. A much larger proportion of our time, energy, resources and attention must be directed towards this. We have spent so long thinking and debating about whether we should do this, that we have lost focus on actually doing it. My reasoning is as follows: Humanity has always sought to explore and expand its scope and scale, and to broaden its horizons. I believe the best future for humanity is one where we are interstellar – a galactic species exploring all over the cosmos and uncovering deeper and more fundamental truths about the universe. The first step towards this is Mars.
There are those who look at something wrong in the world – a broken system, a failed idea – and stand on the sidelines criticizing it. This is the easiest way to garner social media attention, popularity, and praise – but it does absolutely nothing to solve the problem. In fact, in many cases, it makes solving the problem harder. This is the easy way out. Then, there are the doers – those who see the same fault in the world, but instead of complaining about it and then doing nothing else, they seek to find solutions and implement them. They think of better ways, new methods of thinking, creating new services and ideas – this takes much, much longer, requires patience and perseverance, and will not gain you praise in the short term. But. It will be much better for the world – it will solve the issue. That is not to say that activism, or calling out an injustice, is not valuable – far from it. It can educate the public, and make the issue get noticed for a doer in search of a job. But it is not a substitute for creating change. Progress is achieved by finding solutions and working to make them a reality. I implore everyone to, when they see a problem, be the doer, not the critic.

I am equal parts furious and heartbroken tonight, after seeing the events that have just taken place.
Tech Giants, or Big Tech Companies, have become the world’s most powerful and influential Corporations – with Amazon, Apple, Google and Microsoft becoming the most valuable public companies in history.
