My main ideas when it comes to colonization of planets, is that it is vital for securing the future of humans and our prosperity, and any argument that is against this proposition is simply ignorant to the fact that there is so many dangers to one measly planet. Take just probability, if we colonized the solar system, our odds of survival our spread throughout all the planets and moons we have colonized, aswell as the fact in the future (albeit a very long time, but still with forfthcoming events even before this specific one) our sun will expand into a red giant, creating a more outer habitable zone, meaning by atleast then we would have had to move to that zone. Economic struggles are generally the main argument against this, however by moving and colonizing people to the moon first, we can grow said economy by mining it and spreading out our influence and coverage. This means every time we colonize a certain planet or moon, it needs to have some economic or naturalistic intent, this is interesting with particularly our solar system, as by branching an economic system of interspacial objects it makes it safer to continue doing so. In the future, if we do (hopefully) colonize even a fifth of our galaxy, we can cherry pick those that have the most economic or naturalistic intent. So my main argument is that colonizing planets and moons has an obvious naturalistic intent, by safeguarding the human race and creating a more widespread probability of survival in the future, and my rebuttal of economics is that through colonizing it is easily economically maintained through more resources.

I'll take it if it's a colonization of Mars debate.
