I know I'm not in the right position to have an opinion about this kind of thing, but as far as I can see, giving them their freedom will only cause the same kind of problems we saw with the United States back in 2000 odd. We need to keep the central government unified across all the planets, and any one planet, even Mars, going solo, is going to hurt the overall economy. I've heard all sorts of lies about how we will be able to have better trade agreements, but really all I can see is the great depressions happening again and again. We escaped all that, why go back? I know it's been a long time, but humans haven't evolved a better common sense have they!
