Re: Mars One - Unethical?

I want progress too. That is the entire reason I even started watching his interviews and such. At first, I was all for it.

I guess I just don't like that they are taking peoples lives (which is fine as long as the people agree, which they obviously will have to) and turning it into profit, as opposed to truly only doing it because it will be for the greater good.

Maybe it's a bit naive, but progress for the sake of the dollar at the cost of lives seems less thrilling to me then...let's say...50-100 years from now when they can safely transport people to Mars and back without there being any exploitation involved. If it takes longer, it takes longer. I think that when it's done, it just should be for the right reason? I guess.
