(NaturalNews) As most Natural News readers know by now, we’re less than two weeks away from the launch of the Food Rising grow system technology that produces food without electricity, at very little cost, with almost no effort. (www.FoodRising.org)
I’ve put countless hours into designing the 3D parts for this system, and huge dollars into testing 3D printers to test print designs that the public can reliably reproduce. This has been a resource-intensive project from the start, but it’s well worth it, and in this white paper I attempt to explain why.
The conventional wisdom of modern business says that I should patent these innovations, monopolize them and attempt to maximize the financial profit from them while denying others the right to reproduce these ideas. That’s how the traditional corporate business system works, after all: maximize profits, prevent competitors from having your technology and even seek to prevent competitors from introducing similar products. You see it all the time in Big Pharma, where billion-dollar pharma companies actually pay generic drug producers millions of dollars to delay the introduction of lower-priced generic drugs.
But that model of greed only denies humanity the innovations really needed to uplift human civilization and create a better future.
That’s why I believe inventors and entrepreneurs like myself need to find more opportunities to give back to the world by sharing our innovations openly and freely. While there’s nothing wrong with making an honest profit selling honest products in a competitive free market, sometimes we have to take a leap of faith and just give away great ideas for the benefit of humanity.
