I believe that you are too focused on money. Money in itself has very little importance.
I'm quite worried by your way of thinking, because what is important is happiness, not money.
Money and happiness are completely unrelated.

As long as money flows, the capitalist system will keep surviving.
When money will stop flowing, the whole system will badly crash.
Frankly, this is something that I hope because this will force companies (not governments !) to rethink their role.

Now, we are in an era where everybody tries to reduce the costs, but there is a limit to that.
Who will buy the latest expensive gadgets if money is not redistributed ?
Also, do you really need these gadgets ?
Should you always be available to others at any given moment of your day ?

I'll give you some keys:

1) if you doubt, it means that you think too much.
You are probably obsessed by your thoughts, from what I read.
Since this is a compulsive behavior, I would suggest that you try to actively stop thinking, by practicing meditation, fishing or gardening.

2) you are so much afraid about failure that it pains me.
Probably in your past, you encountered people that were unable to cope healthily with failure (probably your parents, who wanted that you "succeed" so much).
Failure and success are the 2 sides of the same coin.
You cannot avoid any of them.
The healthy way to cope with failure is to accept it as a way to improve.
I would recommend that you try to fail small, to check whether the world disappears or not after a failure.
The real question is: what is success ?

3) "I have deep feelings for anyone who suffers or goes trough hard times."
This is bullshit. This is pity not compassion.
Most emotions are similar to thoughts.
If you stop thinking, you'll notice that fake emotions tend to disappear.
You probably try to control your emotions, which makes the whole process difficult to stand.
Try to be more "natural", in other words more sincere with your emotions.

4) I feel a lot of lack of self-confidence in your message.
Bragging about this and that shows that you are too attached to what others think about you.
You still believe that you can please them, instead of yourself.
In reality, self-confidence is detached from any external achievement.

I guess you didn't meet the correct people to help you.
Try to find somebody who can help you. Avoid charlatans and gurus. Find somebody that you feel can relate to you.
And please, try to not think too much about what I wrote: be more sincere to yourself, and your situation will likely improve.

Good luck.

Not exactly.

In fact, it's more about "social success".

I wish to succeed and be recognized socially for my success, otherwise I would not have taken all these risks.

If I fail, not only will I have a negative view of myself but also others will have a negative view of me.

What do I have as solution ?

While I agree with your view about abolishing software patents, I disagree about your view that "these companies recruit developers to fix their bugs for free".

First, unless the project is widely used, the bugs are rarely fixed in open source projects, except when someone is paid to do that.

Secondly, from my experience, I know that working on an open source project increases your chances to find a job, since you both demonstrate that you know how to code, and that you can improve a collective project.

But I agree that it's a way to increase your R&D team without spending any money.

It's because it adds more value to your profile, which is the source of Google's revenue.

Google would like to create its own ecosystem where you use only Google's web applications, an Internet à la Google, where they track every little action that you do.

Also, since you "subscribe" to all of their services, they can claim that their services are used by millions of people.

Agile manifesto is about organizing work.
Reactive manifesto is about designing the architecture.

With agile, architecture is not the priority since the point of view is from the project manager's side.

By the way, the blog is blocked by NoScript. Does an article needs Javascript to be displayed ? WTF ?

Since it's most probably a russian missile, this proves that they have a self-destruct mode that can be activated before they could hit their target.

This implies that the plane shot down by a russian missile in Ukraine was destroyed on purpose, since the missile could have exploded before hitting its target.
