I think even if we had invented a revolutionary highdea like a never ending blunt or somethin lt'd never be known to us. Past inventors like Tesla would be giving us fuckin free energy by now! But then big companies lose money so in effect all evolutionary inventors end up either assasinated or MIA & their ideas forever lost in a sea of time...or were they?

the gentleman scientist doesn't exist any more, you've got to have money and it's hard enough to convince the public or private funders to pay for research that can be proven to lead you to something profitable, we have almost no chance of finding funding for pure research, look how long it took cern to convince europe to pay for the large hadron collider, decades, because they couldn't prove that it would be profitable.. i don't think it's necessary to assassinate inventors to keep their stuff out of the hands of the public, you just have to keep them poor enough that they can't do the research they have to do.. capitalism was a brilliant idea and we've fucked it up completely, we used to have an idle class that could do science for fun, but we can't do it like that any more, now it's all about profits at the cost of everything else, because we've got this idea that greater profits will provide all the other things anyway, but it never works like that

Agreed. We rely on profits too much today. Sponsors make the calls on how much $ their willing to donate for the project. If only this were the industrial hemp age.

when an invention replaces thousands of jobs is it really worth making? i think some day inventions will replace all jobs and then everybody should get all they need for free.

Hopefully that day will come sooner than we think
