@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.
@amiloradovsky Yeah an oligarchy doesn't necessarily act better than a capitalist society either.
In both, I'd argue that hyperstratification is probably a big issue regarding this.
The difference lies in the fact that under capitalism, cost-efficiency is always a major factor, while other systems don't necessarily have this limitation and thus probably have an easier time justifying resource intensive safety measures and design changes.
@amiloradovsky But mostly, time makes the difference, I'd say.
You have to be willing to invest resources and a huge amount of time to do these technologies right and under capitalism any company that would be willing to try will be bankrupt long before any product is rolled out.
