Popular Science just released it’s Best Of What’s New 2009 list with 100 innovations. With a small glimse of the the winners, you will see the ingenuity of the human mind. There is no crisis (ie Health Care) that cannot be solved by unleashing human innovation, which is best driven by the self interested entreprenuer. While innovation is possible with government intervention, the innovation is in spite of the intervention not the result of it. If government encouraged innovation, the Soviet Union would have been the most innovative nation on earth.

Take some time to look at some of the innovations, and then tell me the unleashed innovation of the free human mind can’t solve the government created health care “crisis”.

The standards by which we judge the year’s greatest innovations are simple. The objects don’t necessarily need to be beautiful (although some, like the all-glass TKTS building in Times Square, certainly are). They don’t have to be eco-friendly (although the packaging made of biodegradable fungus certainly is). They don’t even have to be difficult to build (with all due respect to the telescope designed to find Earth-like planets).

They just have to push past what we thought was possible just twelve months ago. And the following 100 innovations have all blown us away, beginning with the headliner, our product of the year: something so simple yet so smart, with the ability to improve countless lives.

The story about the “Answer Man” really drives your point home. Who in their right mind would want to tear down or curtail our capitalist society, you know the one that has produced the most innovative and powerful people that the world has ever known. The lowest income people in our Country live better than the kings of old who could only dream of having fresh fruit and vegetables available to them from all over the world or have the ability to be entertained by thousands of the worlds top performers at the click of a button.

Lee, great point about the poorest in our country. The sad thing is because of jealousy of those who have more, the poor enslave themselves and end up being the ones harmed the most.
