So, I can assume you are against the huge expenditure of money on military and space resesarch such as star wars, even though they brought us things like computers, transistors, and lasers in some of their previous outrageous adventures in warfare research.
As I said earlier, I believe further research is a good thing, and if it needs support from the public, so be it, as long as the public continues to hold some of the benefit.
