Polywell would destabilize the political landscape so much that it will most likely:
1. be sequestered initially for America only, their closest allies decades later, and the world in 50 to 100 years.
2. be classified for DECADES until the technology can provide unequivocal American superiority.
3. be transfered to multinational company/ies who will then found a NWO.
I would beg to differ with this suggestion. Suppose PW worked (my biggest hope and dream next to M-E working) and the above happened. What would the rest of the world say about us? More importantly, how would we reconcile the seeming disparity between what we stand for and what we did as a result of "hiding" this "everything technology"? i.e. I would like to think we stand for all that is good/best in humanity (I know, very utopian of me, but, as is pointed out, how many other "conquers" execute the Marshal Plan and help their former enemies become the #2 economy in the world?) with the despair and suffering that would continue as a result of our purposefully and knowingly limiting the expansion and implementation of PW with all the positive implications discussed here (by the way, nice list! and a fun discussion, since we still have no data to talk about)? (It took me several read throughs to get that incredibly long run on sentence together, enjoy!)
Personally, once Rick and the boys prove it, the smartest (which some of you would argue "therefore it will never happen") thing our govt (not the Navy, this would be much much much bigger than the Navy) could do was immediately announce it and begin an Apollo like program to move us away from fossil fuels and onto fusion/electric power. Lead the world in this with all the economic benefits that come with being first and do it from the moral high ground (which I know, some of you would say we have never really been on).
PW is bigger than the Navy. It is bigger than the US. It is about humanity (just look at the list of issues Cole has brought up in his monumental "first post"!). It is about the planet. It about whether or not our children's children will be able to enjoy the kind of life our parents and us have been enjoying.
By the way, PW powered blimps would make for a fantastic humanitarian aid vehicle! Imagine several of those puppies zipping over to Indonesia after the earthquake with hundreds of tons of supplies and a huge US flag on the side in lights that could be seen all night long like a beacon of hope and salvation.
