[TDF Newsletter] [TDF-2008-01] For a New Renaissance: colonize the Moon and the Near Earth Asteroids!
in these days we assist to a growth of symptoms, more and more evident,
of the crisis of the closed world ideologies.
After the failure of the collectivist utopia, with the collapse of the
eastern bureaucracies, we entered by now, if not the definitive failure,
the likely worst crisis of the liberalist utopia.
The development of China and India suddendly have to face the narrowness
of the planetâ material and energetic resources.

evident by the sub-prime loans crisis â, combined with the warmongering

A new vision of the world is extremely urgent, able to include at least
the Moon and the Near Earth Asteroids in a dimension of development

materials of the solar system.
A new, great, Renaissance is near!
The decision is up to us, almost seven billion intelligent beings, which
populate the third planet of the Solar System!
