13. "RE: Use Your Words"
In response to message #12
 
   >(which is amusing in and of itself, that old colonies like the US and
>Oz are founding colonies of their own, just like Mama Britannia).

There's one fairly significant difference between 21st-century interstellar colonialism and 17th-century English colonialism, in that in the former, there were specific rules against colonizing planets known (or strongly suspected) to be home to indigenous sapient life. Yes, that turns out not to have been observed in the case of Mars, but only unintentionally; at the time the Mars colonies from Earth were established, the native Martians were believed to be extinct. No one deliberately set out to "take up the Earthman's burden" in the First Diaspora.
