I have an appointment with a trust attorney tomorrow afternoon. Since it will only cost me 5% of my monthly income I guess I can't claim to be 100% committed, can I?
It will be pretty interesting to see his reaction to me declaring I'd like to finance a mars colony. I suppose I'll have to come to that point rather gradually?
I asked his secretary to google Zubrin and land patents. If he reads that article before we meet I can start by explaining why that will not work. Then I will explain why Mars One is a suicide mission. How the space settlement initiative has it's heart in the right place but will never get anywhere. Why Elon's $500k ticket will fail. Why the Outer Space Treaty is a good thing for private commercial ventures. Why the moon treaty reveals how international lawyers would like to rid us of private property.
Then I can talk about terms, conditions and administration of a trust holding billions of dollars in assets.
I may even throw in Jefferson and Madison and John Locke.
Hey, I can fit that into an hour... doncha think?
So where are your comments that I really should be committed?
