The government is using tax dollars to research new technology for a manned mission to mars. When this technology is perfected the rich will privatize it to mine mineral resources on asteroids and other near planetary bodies for profit without any taxation at all. Not to mention the further militarization of space. If or when the rich are able to achieve this they will be more rich and powerful than could ever have been imagined. This would effectively bring capitalism to outer space and expand the military industrial complex to near science fiction levels. Fortunately the inherent challenges to achieving this goal are staggering. However we must never underestimate the persistence of the rich to achieve their goals. Mining of near planetary bodies would not necessarily be a bad thing if the 1% had the character of someone like Peter Cooper but unfortunately the 1% has more of the character of someone like Rockefeller so this endeavor has grave implications for the 99%. Let’s face the facts. The 1 percent wouldn’t have funded eugenics & human behavioral experiments & instigate wars & all of the horrible things they do just for profit alone. The ultimate goal is world domination. No matter what century, there have always been people who can be classified as the 1% whose ultimate goal is to rule the world. But, controlling the majority of resources in the world has traditionally been seen as the only feasible way to be able to have enough weaponry and power to dominate the world & since resources are as scattered as they are here on earth, world domination has remained elusive. China and Russia are prepared to defend themselves & the resources within their territories & even much of South America has been politically distancing itself from the U.S. But, whoever capitalizes on the resources outside of the earth first will potentially have the power to dominate everything. They must not be allowed to succeed.
Here is some credible evidence regarding my statements...

I humbly suggest that a campaign be created to occupy outer space.
