The social and political basis for the optimistic, progressive,
astronautical society of the present and future
The intention is to maintain on the following pages a concise statement of the principles of evolutionary growth and progress as applied to the astronautical expansion of civilisation from its current monoglobal status out into the broader astronomical universe.
Each topic is dealt with on three pages: a statement of the astronautical evolutionist view; a page for miscellaneous comments from readers; and a page concisely stating dissenting views.
All material is by Stephen Ashworth, Oxford, UK (the owner of this website), unless otherwise attributed.
