“The truth is that the moon is a depressing place. Depressed people tend to look down at the ground a lot. And everyone knows that if you stare at the moon, you go crazy. So living on the moon makes you crazy. Which is depressing, if you think about it. That’s why thinking people go crazy around here so much faster than everyone else” — Vladimir Rand, The Survival Guide for Lunatics

A century and a half of “Terror Wars” have permanently militarized international relations and made the Moon into the dumping ground for the dregs of humanity.
