    For a bunch of mercenary contractors, I’m surprised that no-one has said “because they don’t pay enough”.

    there's more utility in life learning about my surroundings and understanding nature than that desire politicians seem to have in controlling others through the abuse of power
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Politician, hmm.

    Don't they mainly do that to score some ludicrously overpaid consultancy after a couple of years?

    Whereas contractors cut out the crap in the middle.

    Win.
