Now, China is in talks with the European Space Agency about a real estate project on the moon.
Yes, humans will be relocating there. And the elephant in the room on this one is: Will Trump Inc. be able to get in on that investment? Here is the media coverage the Drudge Report links to.
In China, the point person on this is Tian Yulong the secretary general for the nation's space agency. The plan is not for single-family houses or condos. The idea is more for a space-age kind of commune. There, it is envisioned, folks with live and work together.
Those of us who came of political age during the early 1970s counterculture movement in America recall experimenting with the radical notion of group living. One model was the kibbutz in Israel. The concept died, though, with the severe recession that hit mid decade. We returned to the individualist pursuit of finding work. Currently, some cults still embrace the total community ethos.
A commune on the moon meshes with China's ideological commitment to a version of communism. Yes, it has become more capitalistic and veering away from total state ownership of businesses. But there continues a group mindset.
The Trump Inc. business approach is more individualistic, of course. So, the third generation now running the real estate empire might have to first understand the thinking within China before strategically planning to get in on this opportunity. That is, if Trump Inc. assesses this venture could be profitable.
Me? Sure, I would be up for the adventure. Being part of a live-work community would return me to my youthful days of assuming the capitalist self can be reconfigured into a group identity.
