GOVERNMENT'S TECHNOLOGY MYTH

Government tells its victims that it has helped technology to develop and that without government’s extraneous layer of interference in free lives, inventions would not be possible.

The fact is that almost all inventions have been made by individuals working alone or in concert with free companies. Thomas Edison whose thousands of patents boosted technology to a significant degree had no government grants, nor did Voltaire, Nickolai Tesla, Samuel Morse, Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein, or Marconi.

If you took away the government, you would still have electricity, the light bulb, motion pictures, radio, television, and refrigeration.

If you took away inventive individuals, you would not have electricity, the light bulb, motion pictures, radio, television, and refrigeration.

It is individuals who invent things.

It is government that tries to take credit for it, when government does absolutely nothing except tax and enslave.
