My Note –
So, what if I know of three retro-fit inventions for their ships that would prevent pirates from boarding that are not being used right now . . .
What durn difference would it make because in this company and every other shipper, shipping and ship owner corporation – there is no way for anybody except insurers and expensive little boutique security companies to interact with them. So, there you go – what a waste.
My note –
I emailed these available designs to shipowners and shipowners associations. It did no good – to them it is just spam. And, I’m here to allow that there are entire staffs of people whose only job is to keep people and their ideas out of those corporate offices at the same time they bitch and whine about wanting innovation. It is bullshit – either they do or they don’t and if they do want inventions, innovations, novel approaches, thinking “outside the box” perspectives, innovative thinking and creative applications to solve problems that are costing them a fortune – then they need to clear a path to make it happen and be willing to apportion some reasonable payment for it to happen. Because not doing so is costing every situation where these inventive solutions could work.
Most creative solutions are created at the kitchen table, not in the boardroom and at every convention, every conference and at every opportunity, these same big corporate entities are screaming for novel approaches, new ideas, innovation and inventiveness. Well, they are the ones preventing it by the excluding pathways they’ve created which disallow any reasonable approach to them and their willingness to steal ideas rather than to pay for them – so maybe nothing can be done about it.
I have a little book about Publishing It Yourself which has an introduction that describes a multitude of great writings, wonderful literature and entire books which we would have never had the opportunity to read or know about it if the publishing companies had the only decision in it. These included great works by authors and statesmen from the 1790’s till now.
This day, only those with a Harvard Ph.D. are given the opportunity to publicly market what they’ve written with any appreciable certainty, including being given the ability to access literary agents. These agents don’t have any use, time or inclination to consider the rest of us. And, that is a fact. Unless there is an agent, publication doesn’t happen and the same is likely true for inventions and other copyrighted materials, novel approaches to solutions, promotional campaigns and other great things that will never see the marketplace.
Unfortunately, in this restricted non-competitive marketplace that the US has become at the hands of the Republican Party – most Americans, including me are left to the mercy of the world or excluded altogether. Its like living in a time and place with absolutely no use for anything that they can’t already do the way it is being done even when that isn’t working well.
Sometimes, I don’t know why I have worked so many long hours each and every day to produce things that there is not now, nor will there ever be any use for in the country where I live. At this moment, I know it has likely always been this way in the United States and the rest of the propaganda, about opportunity being available to all, has been nothing but that – propaganda, to keep us all moving like cattle spending money on the pools of income streams to feed the rich and the already established corporations.
