The curse of benevolence

The curse of benevolence
So you want to save the world? You will be struck with hard resistance. Nikola Tesla wanted to provide free electricity to the world to level the playing field as it were. He also wanted to end all wars with various defense systems. Thirdly, he wanted to provide better communications to end discrimination. I noticed that I have the same three goals with some of my ideas: 1)systems for energy self-sufficient living that can be made anywhere on the globe using local materials 2) reduced reliance on money and distributed resources (like energy sources and water) which I hope would decrease the possibility of wars due to competition for resources or due to retaliation for stopping the flow of needed resources... if no external resources are needed, no harm or cause for war can develop from anything harmful people may try to do. 3) I want to make a multilingual website format to make communication with anybody in any language easy and very accurate in translation. With this I hope to facilitate better learning and open communication will all people. Free communication is also a goal with various ways of transmitting information without the use of servers and privately owned or government controlled network systems. All of Tesla's ideas in this altruistic nature were most actively opposed but when money can be made and people enslaved, those systems of Tesla's are embraced (like distributed electrical power via AC). I also seem to receive most criticism for my ideas when presented as a way to help poor people or to do good in the world... tell how I can use such ideas to suck money out of the poor and suddenly everyone seems interested and thinks the idea is good.
