Point taken. I think I was drunk when I slammed your post. Im sORRY!
90% of the worlds food supply is from big business and their methods are top secret, as in very few actually know the full extent of their reckless scientific intervention.
It's unnatural and imo right next to force feeding steroids or the like to the masses. It's all about profit.

Why is it that believers always say it's big oil companies supress water powered cars?
Big oil doesn't manufacture cars. They sell gasoline.
Ford - Chevy - Etc manufactures cars.
Back when gas flirted with $5 a gallon any car company that had cars that would get 100 mpg would sell their entire production run at prices above sticker. No rebates. No 1% interest deals.
Even now there seems to be a race for the highest mpg cars. Each year they seem to sqeeze another mpg out of their line. That didn't happen 5 years ago.
Get your conspiracies straight.

That doesn't really mesh with current offerings in the car/truck lineup. There isn't really any cars that are pushing the envelope with the Gas Mileage over here in the US. My wife's 1998 Econobox gets 35-38mpg with Max A/C. This is consistent mind you, and we're pushing 170k with no diligent maintenance on my part. The BRAND NEW 2012 Honda Civic we were looking at gets *about* the same.
14yr NEWER technology getting the same gas mileage as my old-tech car?! Explain to me how that is squeezing more MPG's? Shouldn't it at LEAST be getting 50MPG???
Sure, it has a little more HP (emphasis on little), but as far as I'm concerned, I can still do 80MPH on the Interstate and pass people in my old econobox.
I'm also curious as to where these 100MPG cars you're talking about are! Are these some super secret club-member-only offerings I wasn't aware of?!

I am resurrecting this 2012 thread, since this "innovation suppression" continues unabated - and has now advanced into "innovation destruction".
1) Tesla wanted an energy system that flowed thru the air. Oh no! Too much money lost in taxing must-have, everyone-wants utilities! Then, when computers and the Internet burst on the scene, we suddenly got energy-thru-the-air as Wi-Fi.
2) We have no more manned-exploration thru NASA, since the billions to create a shuttle replacement were diverted into the super-secret, gravity-cancelling TR-3B triangle. So now NASA has been reduced to just probe/satellite/ISS "science faire experiments." While helpful ideas like this usually go no-where:
HOW TO FIX U.S. SPACE PROJECTS AND DEFENSE PROGRAMS COSTS ARE TEN TO ONE HUNDRED TIMES TOO HIGH
"James Wertz of Microcosm presented at the Future In-Space Operations (FISO) Working Group on "Reinventing Space--Why Aren't We There?"
3) And NASA and other innovations have excelled at Team Obama's key strategy for "innovation suppression": Delay, Delay, Delay. The Space Taxi seems ever farther way in reality. And glitch-a-minute SpaceX - whose once a year partial tests never work as they should ("Oh darn! Need another fifteen-bill for another three decades of "tests!") - perfectly highlight this strategy.

A lot of it isn't even repressed, the common man doesn't think about the repercussions from some of those inventions. Many of them would put hundreds, maybe thousands if not more out of work. Which in turn would start a downward spiral, because they would be spending less if at all, losing many things. Which would force other jobs to lay people off etc etc.
