Comment Re:Why dump the trash? (Score 1) 68

I think AC was suggesting that the capsule is useful, not necessarily the trash they deorbited with it, but I understand what you are saying too; without the capsule, it is rather difficult to deorbit the trash.

Most of the trash is likely the food containers and biological waste, I don't know what else they have up there that they need to get rid of, but it isn't like we have massive farms attached to the ISS to utilize the fertilizer people output.

Maybe that would be a good addition to the station, a farming module.

If the politicians could be convinced, the way to go about it is this:

The government starts building the factories/farms/mines needed, and provides the products to the people. It seems like this is the only way to wrest control from the wealthy, and put it in the government's hands, so that the government can do its job of providing for the people.
