As NASA prepares for a manned expedition to Mars, many speculate this will be a first step toward a permanent human settlement on the planet. So, is it ever too soon to ask what lives could be like on Mars, or on any other planet future generations are destined to call home? What form could their society take? Is it a good time to select the best ideas and institutions that have allowed progress on Earth? Maybe all they will need is the modern system of merit and innovation that is ensuring they have a chance to leave Earth and continue our human journey. When we venture into the unknown we need to consider what to take with us, and what to leave behind. That could be an opportunity to create a brighter future and a better world.
