@phryk In USSR genetics was banned, cybernetics was largely neglected, and nuclear power was also mostly used for WMD and related stuff.
Yes, there were also civil nuclear (icebreaker) ships; that shouldn't be dismissed. But some other aspects of "peaceful atom" of that era are less admirable.
@phryk So far states/governments are the sole investors in many/most parts of the crucial infrastructure. Private firms and markets are made not for that, but for low-level optimization under given constraints.
The correct direction of influence is from governments to firms, when it's reversed, it's a catastrophe.
@amiloradovsky Well at least on that we seem to agree. In the current systemic framework, the state would definitely be the better party to handle things like nuclear power plants, tho I'm not sure by how much since incompetence is rampant in the public sector.
