Following up on last weeks topic on transhumanism is a simpler question.
Is it in the interest of anarchism for humans to leave and settle upon other planets than earth.

On the pro side is the idea that exploration, while the seed of colonialism, is also the seed of something like freedom. Any place else will not have the institutions and anthropology that this planet does.
Any place else can represent the tabla rosa [edit: tabula rasa] of a fresh start, a blank piece of paper, a new beginning.
