Knowledge is certainly POWER. Trying to look at this from another perspective... leads me to thinking about nuclear proliferation. What began as a
profound, secret science has filtered into the hands of people who might just be fanatical enough to use it. Yes, the US used these weapons, but: it
was used to end a war that would have continued (and claimed countless lives in mainland Japan).
Back to point: today, countries such as Iran, whose leader openly shouts for the destruction of other countries, has nuclear capability, or is on the
way towards it. They got a hold of KNOWLEDGE and now they have (or will soon have) nuclear POWER. "Power" in the sense of influence, the
capability to threaten massive damage and mean it. How did such an irresponsible regime get this enormous power? And, it is a power they didn't
EARN. They stole it, and/or they bought it. They got this knowledge not by hard work or discovery.
Now, imagine FREE knowledge about anything and everything available to universities posted on the web for anyone and everyone to access. People with
questionable motives and infused hatred would be able to click-click-click into whatever they wanted.
Some knowledge should be earned, not freely given away. I'm not saying that a free library is a bad thing. We just have to be careful about the
knowledge we share to the world. Some secrets are better kept... unknown.
I imagine this is why anti-grav technology and scalar technology are kept out of the illuminated sphere of public knowledge. Imagine a "bad guy"
accessing Tesla-type technology and destroying the world (as Tesla claimed to have been able to do).
Just some food for thought...
