Dvorak said it takes a long time to claim a planet.
It's not a proud moment for our legal system. Documents say you can claim a planet you have a permanent human presence on. The problem is how you define human presence.
Countries and corporations sent out millions of sublight probes with a few frozen human cells to land on anything they could find. Most have no intention of developing the planet, they just want money from people who might. We call them planet trolls.
I see the problem. There's a scam going on and we're not in on it.
Shakespeare's character said “The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.” He was talking about undermining the rule of law, which is what keeps our society working.
When lawyers take advantage of how a law is written in a way that is obviously unfair, the rule of law is also weakened. Then it's up to us to fix it before people lose faith in the system and take things into their own hands.
Personally, I think government lawyers would have an easier job if we didn't have to spend so much time keeping private sector lawyers from burning their own house down.
