I like to think of myself as rational. As a result, I like to ask questions, to know the why of things. Which is precisely why I had to leave Earth -- not only could I not take all the lies and deception, but they didn't want anyone like me around.

I hope, though, that we can learn from human history, and not repeat the inevitable cycle (how many times have humans NOT learned from the past? too many to count). In some ways it will be easy to start fresh, it is only when we grow in number that it will be difficult to not give in to history and our human nature.

Unless us colonists are somehow biologically different from our cousins on Earth. Why else are we so unhappy with how things ended up, yet so many aren't? Maybe our genes are different enough, and we can make a better history for ourselves, different from home.

One can only hope.
