You may have read that SpaceX has launched a rocket to the moon carrying a payload called the Lunar Library. This 30-million page document contains the combined wisdom of mankind and is being sent to the moon as a kind of insurance policy to protect the heritage of the human race.
I have a simpler solution that is much more likely to have the desired effect: Let’s send Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to the moon instead. In recent months we have learned that this former bartender contains within her exquisite brain the answers to problems that have plagued mankind for millennia — and that doesn’t even include her recipe for the perfect margarita.
In addition to protecting the secrets to free health care, free college, and free money, the proposed solution would have the added advantage of saving the United States $93 trillion — the estimated cost of Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. Plus she won’t be able to stop the rest of us from having children while she’s chilling on the dark side!
Another benefit to my modest proposal is that I think it could win bipartisan support. Republicans, of course, would be happy to help AOC try out her ban on air travel by letting her use the moon as a test case, but Democrats would have their own reasons for keeping her off-planet at least until after, oh, let’s say the next presidential election. Since she is taking all the air out of the room for Democratic hopefuls, it just makes sense to send her someplace where there is no air to start with.
