The promise of Asgardia teeters on the edge of fantasy. A fantasy so alluring and good and pure that it's ripe for exploit. The chances for which, I think, are high. The people heading this initiative have everything to gain from a charade of this magnitude and very little to lose. And yet the small chance that this is legitimate, that there could be a real nation founded on the best of human qualities, is worth the risk.
Make no mistake, this is not to be undertaken lightly nor ever to be taken at face value. Every decision must be scrutinized and every move tracked. In fact, it would be our duty as Asgardian citizens to do so. To ensure that the principles laid out for us are adhered to by those who have started this path. And if their intentions are pure and in line with the Asgardian Constitution, then the founders will welcome such inspection.
And perhaps we should do the same for ourselves. A personal inspection of our own lives. To take stock of where we are now and where the ideals of Asgardia require us to be. Because some of us (i'm thinking of me right now) are not totally there. I know I am deeply flawed and yet inside is a desire that burns. A desire to do right by the world. To create something lasting and meaningful and good.
This is good. Asgardia is good. I believe in us and I believe in the Asgardian Constitution. The possibility is there for us to be the catalyst which propels humanity into the stars. I will do what needs to be done to ensure that. I hope all of you, in your own way, do the same.
