I guess there's one way to know for sure. You could build a rocket and fly out of here.
Wait, no? You don't have a license to build a rocket? Well no worries. Just follow the registration process
Wait, no? You need to be military to be trusted with such dangerous equipment? Ok, no worries, well just enlist yourself as military, and/or obtain a business license to govern such a venture, and follow from there to build your own rocket.
Wait, no? Few people, even amongst the rich and powerful can seem to do this? Hmm . . . we seem to be at a crossroads.
Well I stand by my original statement. I guess there's one way to know for sure. You could build a rocket and fly out of here.
