  16. Kylesa,

    Have you ever seen or read or heard of anything that projects where we would be technology wise or progress wise if they were left unhindered?

    I just daydream about that sometimes while I watch these videos that talk about how we've progressed and wonder how we must still be in the stone age compared to where we should be if nothing had ever stood in it's way.
  17. Nothing seemingly comes to mind, but I'm sure someone like Tom Woods has spoken about that subject in past things I've watched/read. Something like that is highly speculative, though, so it probably isn't too common.
