Your problem is you involve too much emotion in the thinking that "Oh no!!!!!, we can't let people starve, that would be horrible!!!!!". Animals
starve in an overpopulated ecosystem every day. It is no different with humans.
Eliminating money? That will NEVER happen.
As for Kamen's purification technique, this appeared on a site detailing the process:
produces 10 gallons of clean water an hour on 500 watts of electricity
Is that scalable to the size needed in order to be effective? Where will the energy come from to power it? Who will pay for it?
No offense intended, but it sounds like you are living in a bit of a fantasyland. Lets deal in reality here.
What, exactly, are these elite and gigantic corporations going to do with their profits and massive bank accounts, anyways?
What is the point in constantly amassing all this wealth? If you spend $15,000 a month and have $80 billion, what are you waiting for?
I don't see why we think that money, energy, anything is at risk. I guarantee that if every 'elite' donated 25% of their wealth to discover cleaner
burning coal (not that we probably already don't have it), disease research (researching completely healthy vaccines, and distributing them
worldwide), and developing the infrastructure for solar energy and urban farming, we could do it with some to spare in infrastructure in solar energy
and free energy development (if it's not already here).
We have enough oil to last our current (ridiculous, inefficient) needs for another 100 years. That's basically 100 years we have to develop
alternative energy resources, and effectively end any global control. If there's enough food and clean energy to go around, and say everybody has 1/4
acre of farm able land located near a freshwater source, we're already in a Heaven we've built for ourselves.
To quote one of my favorite videos, "And there might yet be a heaven, but it isn’t going to be perfect. And we’re going to have to build it
