Let's not make ours a one-planet grave for a culture too orthodox to chase after a positive externality

From xkcd. The alt-text: "The universe is probably litered with the one-planet graves of cultures which made the sensible economic decision that there's no good reason to go into space - each discovered, studied and remembered by the ones who made the irrational decision."

Hopefully this projection does not pan out.
