I'm still not buying into the whole "bad guys are out to get me" thing.
First off - if it's a gov thing we are talking about "crats" - lots of em. Been to a DMV, IRS or other gov office lately..?? Red tape, paperwork
and lots of hands on everything. An order to whack someone would would have paperwork, signed in triplicate and filed. Someone would talk....
Corporations - don't think so.... Outside auditors, consultants, and workerbees also peeping around every corner - unlikely there is any "hit
squad" as if it was outed, that company would be front page Wall Street Journal news and would go down in flames, from local, state and federal law
enforcement - not to mention public outcry.
Now - lets see, scientific community works as an open forum - it all about results being duplicated by others. First person to publish will get the
credit and the laurels so there is no need to hide. Many major breakthroughs have happened this way and made people very wealthy. Same in corporate
research - if "whacking" was the case why wouldn't say the post it notes guy have been terminated and whacked by 3M instead of being given millions
and there are many more "inventions" that are in that boat. Fleishman and Pons never got whacked.... I suppose the military powers/NWO/IBM OK'd
Moore at Intel and Gate or Jobs along the way instead of keeping things buried at Area 51 or Wright Pat..?? Last time I check those were life
altering and very profitable ventures and not too much in the way of whacking occured....
We now have worldwide and instantaneous news flow, backed up by millions of private servers hosting said info. If it's so great, there are anonymous
ways to post that would be difficult to track down. Same with floating it to a newspaper - they kept deep throat hidden for quite a while - remember,
and once it's changed the world - the due credit can be outed and the money will pour in.
I'm not buying it - if it works and is great there are far more ways to get it out there than most people think and sadly the "whack jobs" that are
purported to have happened have been re-distilled many times over, usually via web sites where no fact checking is available so it blossoms into -
corporate "man" kept me down. Conspiracy folks run with it and a tall tale is born. More likely the thing never really worked, and a story is an
easy out. Investors that were duped get a plausible story to console their loss and the duper can work it for speaking fees and book rights for
Occams razor here people - simplest explanation is probably the right one and "snake oil" salesmen have been around for centuries and will be for a
long time to come. The laws of physics are also tough to get around - so far. I would not doubt a real breakthrough coming at some point, but it will
be done with hard and open scientific work - probably with some luck thrown in. If it turns out to be a better mousetrap, that can be built and
marketed for a profit - the person behind it will get riches and lots of them. Beware anything that is kept "hidden" or requires "payment" to see
- it's a con job as old as humanity - even Tesla published but sadly the media machine was not available to him to profit wildly like it is today....
