Here's what we do. You know all that money we spend on nuclear weapons and defence every year? Instead, if we spent that money feeding and clothing the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded ... not one ... we could as one race explore space, together, both inner and outer, for ever, in peace.
Bill Hicks, 1990.
