This is a form of "research and development". If we do not invest in social R&D then we are divesting in our shared future. Only by funding multiple ideas and programs can we truly innovate to our truest potential. It takes a few failed attempts to hit that well spring of potential. Of course this does not mean an unlimited purse but we cannot be stingy and stimy progress. Let's stop giving multi-million and billion dollar corporations tax breaks and start giving society a break from now on.
