Is a moon base a good idea?

Background and context

The colonization of the Moon is the proposed establishment of permanent human communities on the Moon. Advocates of space exploration have seen settlement of the Moon as a logical step in the expansion of humanity beyond the Earth. National claims to the best locations on the moon may eventually lead to another space race. Polar colonies would be ideal for avoiding long cold nights and to take full advantage of the sun. Nations first to arrive at the poles might lay claim to them, similar to claims made at the Earth's north pole.
