American innovation is in trouble

By Fareed Zakaria

If you ask people in Silicon Valley what makes it work, they will talk about many things — the ability to fail, the lack of hierarchy, the culture of competition. One thing almost no one mentions is the government. And yet, the Valley’s origins are deeply tied to government support. The reason there were so many engineers in California in the 1950s and 1960s was because large defense companies had attracted them there. Most of the legendary start-ups that fueled the computer revolution — Fairchild Semiconductor, Intel — got off the ground largely because the military, and later NASA, would buy their products until they became cheap and accessible enough for the broader commercial market. GPS, the technology that now powers the information revolution, was developed for the military.

And then there was government funding for research, which is sometimes thought of simply as large grants to universities for basic science but often was far more ingenious. My favorite example comes from Walter Isaacson’s fascinating new book, “The Innovators.” In the 1950s, the U.S. government funded a massive project at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory, employing equal numbers of psychologists and engineers who worked together to find ways “that humans could interact more intuitively with computers and information could be presented with a friendlier interface.” Isaacson traces how this project led directly to the user-friendly computer screens of today as well as ARPANET, the precursor of the Internet.

Federal funding for basic research and technology should be utterly uncontroversial. It has been one of the greatest investments in human history. And yet it has fallen to its lowest level as a percentage of GDP in four decades.

    What does knowing the truth do for you, she asks. How has it enriched your life, she says with a smirk.
    The truth shall set you free, said one famous man long before she ever asked such stupid questions. Which were nothing more than her trying to make me the topic instead of Chemtrails or crooked politicians or evil men harvesting organs of children.

      I asked you some very simple questions; there wasn't any "smirk" involved.

      I'll ask you them again, since you seem to have forgotten the questions:

      How has this knowledge you supposedly possess enriched your life?

      Does it make you happier?

      What impact has this knowledge had on the quality of your life?

      Here's a new one for you to (most likely) ignore:

      What is your definition of "freedom", since the "truth" has set you there?

      • Philip

        Like I said. Jesus already answered all of those stupid questions children have. You are still asking them because you are ignorant of Jesus. The man who coined the phrase The truth will set you free. If you don't know what truth sets you free from you don't know Jesus nor his heavenly father. You don't know true freedom. You only know of American style freedom and "civil" liberties. You are enslaved to a crooked system of things that has filled your mind with lies, not truths. Is why there are no university classes teaching students how to be honest in all of their dealings. And why War colleges but no Peace colleges.
        You are in one of those little pods made fun of by the move The Matrix. Sucking it all in daily. You are actually soaking in it right now, totally unawares. Doped by Big Pharma and fed by Big Fooda.

      • banasy©

        You cannot answer. I understand; it appears all of this "knowledge" has not made your life any richer.

        I've asked you nothing about Jesus; either answer the questions I asked of you, or stop deflecting and changing the subject 942 times.

        Do not turn this back to me in your cowardice; answer!

    America's divorce rate is getting ridiculously high. And I'm not buying-in to the official reasons why either.
    I think a leading cause of divorce is that a couple really didn't know what the other smelled like for real until after they were married and living together.
    Not a conspiracy theory. Just an idea.

    The wicked man Pilate asked the same question, Donna. To Jesus. "What is truth?" he said. Jesus did not answer him for a reason. Pilate was old enough to have figured out what truth is. He chose to remain ignorant of it. And so Jesus honored Pilate's right to free will. Knowing that answering him would do him no good. He simply did not want to learn the truth from Jesus. But from senators and official sources. Lies.

      One day a very rich man approached Jesus and begged the question What must I do to enjoy your freedom? Jesus told him that first he would have to go home and sell all of his fancy belongings and help the needy. That by doing so he would be on the path that leads to actual freedom.
      The rich man sighed and walked away. For he had many fancy things.
      Today, this teaching of Jesus' has been twisted into God wants YOU to be as rich as your preacher is. Almost everyone is on board with it too. Who doesn't like fancy stuff.

    I am free of idolatry, Donna. Free from chasing money and women. Free from my hedonistic family who think Jesus was only kidding. Free from Druggery afflicting most of mankind. Free from going to see a doctor from being so sick. Free from needing to go to a pharmacy for relief. Free from drunk driving, even. My last DUI was in 1996 and I'm proud of myself for that.
    Free from beating-up policemen and paid informants too I might add.

      So you would say that possessing all of this special "knowledge" has, indeed, made you happy and fulfilled as a person?

      Because from the tenor of your posts, you seem far, far from happy, and satisfied with life. You seem quite....the opposite of that.

    Free from the fear of men using nuclear bombs to destroy the world. Free from AIDS. Was fortunate AIDS wasn't in America yet when I was a young man. Surely I would have contracted that deadly super-virus.
    Free from making myself look pretty for women. Free from women entirely. Except in places like this hole.
    All kinds of freedoms you never knew existed.

      These are things that knowing the truth and distinguishing it from the lie has set me free from. The truth is, women wear perfume to confuse the male hormone, for example. And doctors call people "bi polar" because they were taught to and there's good money to be made pushing dope.

    You will never know truth, Donna. You have way too many fancy things. Time will teach you this lesson. You will live to see this system of things crumble down to nothing. There is NOTHING that has been carefully concealed that will not be fully revealed before this system falls. Everyone will be made aware of truth, and then decide: Do I want fancy things or do u want the wonderful freedom Jesus spoke of, says YOUR bible.

      You know precisely zero of my life. You never have, yet you continue to speculate on it.

      Am I an inner city ghetto mother, like you have stated before?

      Or am I the princess in the gated community, like you have stated before?

      Stop while you haven't made a complete fool of yourself by evoking Jesus's name while doing the polar opposite of what He taught, you monumental hypocrite.

        He studied at night to get his degree in civil engineering and left HP to become the fourth highest paid person in Colorado Spring's Gas Department. He had petroleum engineers working under him. I used to pick their brains and they had to sit there and take it. Lol.
