When one lives in a liberal democracy and enjoys the relative affluences that allows for things like leisure time, then one might come to expect that planetariums, libraries and internet access are human birthrights. Most of the Earth's six billion people (it's billion, not million, by the way) might claim that their own daily preoccupation with the tasks of feeding and sheltering themselves and their families make planetariums about as relevant to their existence as cholera and typhoid would be to yours.

Unfortunately I think that public planetariums and the way of life that goes with them are luxuries for the relatively few. I share your desire that all people might one day get to enjoy them.
