Technologies primarily for profits versus pure advancement.
Technology Deficiencies and Global Suffering:
Most technologies currently developed are beneficial for the human race. However, the rate of technology advancements specifically dedicated to reducing and eliminating forms of social suffering does not meet current and future global needs.
Increased Need for Resources:
Currently, global citizens are aware of planet earth as the sole world available for human inhabitation. Yet, rising global populations and demand for food and raw materials require that the human race find alternate living strategies and resources to accommodate future needs.
An extremely small percent of global citizens are able to effectively communicate with the majority of other global citizens due to language barriers. Accordingly, routine encounters worldwide among those with limited cross-language competencies often end or fail to evolve into knowledge exchanged or social relationships formed. Additionally, the human species is denied many valuable interactions due to limited technologies that fully incorporate hearing and visually impaired citizens.
Patents Restricting Global Release and Benefit:
Modern human motivations to delay the release of patented knowledge, products and processes are compensation and commercial competition. Furthermore, humans will sometimes conduct covert operations, years of expensive litigations or even kill adversaries to achieve superiority in these matters. Meanwhile, citizens around the globe are systematically denied the immediate benefits of new knowledge. Furthermore, when finally released, consumers will pay higher prices to cover patent-related compensations and expenses.
