Ah, I understand your point a little better.

I agree a decentrailized energy plan would be much better.

As far as monopoly goes, that would be the other function of government, to prevent such things.

Personally I find the idea of spending tax money on research of just about any type questionable.

I'd rather just keep the money and spend it myself.

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.

With a bit of research, you will find this

"Enrico Fermi died on November 29, 1954 due to stomach cancer, the result of years of exposure to radiation. He is buried in Chicago."

on the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory site, its a well established fact, known to all who have studied the life of this great man, that he gave his life for his work.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
