I think we'd all be living like Gene Rodenberry hoped we would right now dealing with space like a boss. Instead we get slightly better improvements on the same thing. If this actually happened it would revolutionise every aspect of life across the globe in an unprecedented way. The patent system and religion have kept us living in the dark ages.

I concur. I have just finished reading an article about a 5 year old girl, suspended from school (after a several hour long interrogation) for shooting bubbles from a hello kitty bubble gun. This has been classed by the school as a terroristic action and she will have a stain on her education record for ever. It's very sad to see what once was the most powerful nation in the world slipping into a mire of paranoia and emotionally driven actions. Fuck knows what sort of state they will be in after another year of this type of behaviour.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
