"I see, " said Mikhail a tiny bit perturbed. "So what is the plan."

"Well, we will be heading off to Beta-Carotene 3 well before any other cargo-hauler thinks to even attempt to travel there. Being the very first ship to fly there we will have a head start on everybody."

"I don't understand. The first ship? Surely the colony ships were the first ships to fly there?"

"That's the genius of the plan my boy! We set off years before any colony ships even think of going to Beta Carotene 3."

"That makes no sense. There won't be a colony there when we arrive."

"Don't worry about that. You see space drive technology is improving exponentially. We will head off in this ship but while we are travelling, spaceships in general will be getting faster. So, long before we get to the system, new much faster colony ships will have set off at higher speeds and will get there before us!"

"But, won't we have to be in space for a long time for technology to improve that much?"

"Beta Carotene 3 is hundreds of light years away. The trip is going to take us at least a hundred and fifty years."

Marxism is very bankrupt. This was a lesson I learnt growing up as a small kitten. In those days we were very poor. Not so poor that we had nothing to eat but poor enough that may parents simply couldn't afford to buy me a playstation. Unlike the kids today I had to make my own entertainment or perhaps play on the gameboy I had got for Christmas. Good times.

Naturally this got me thinking about the mainstream 'Big four' publishers and how their business strategy is doomed. Nobody buys books from them anymore and yet they run around frantically trying to get money out of their big name authors (I shan't name examples but John Scalzi springs to mind) just like those squirrels gathering nuts for winter.
