Would we be better or worse off?

That's a good point. But I think we would be able to disregard it if we consider that, you can get off of the "mind net" just by changing your brain frequency, to engage into telepathy the brain has to be funcioning in a low frequency otherwise the brain proccessing power required for telepathy will be directed on other proccesses.
That's why I read somewhere that to protect yourself from a mind attack you have to become alert (beta frequencies) which I believe is a legit advice, other thing you can do is put a blank mind, through meditation.

Now, just think...if they actually build a practical telepathy-enabling device, then what would stop the military from seizing it and forcibly scanning our thoughts?
This is a real possibility people. There is nothing more powerful than the ability to know what any person is thinking just by training a device on them. Can our government resist such potential?
I don't think so.
The only other option is our leaders saying, "Well, if we can't use it for military applications, then you can't use it for the furtherance of mankind."
Yes, they would be pig-headed like that.
But no matter what happens, I'll be intensely interested to see where this goes.

The possibilities of utilizing these results are insane. Emitters could be placed around the world like a grid and actually create a direct and organic internet. The empathy required to digest this sort of brain functionality would force people to actually feel and experience the injustices they are responsible for.
This, combined with (near) free energy sources, would completely end all conflict and greed.
I feel we are actually approaching a fully ethical society that many have been predicting. Or... it will just be used to advertise pharmaceutics and McDonalds.
