"The claims of government development are true, as far as they go: without the Manhattan Project of WW2, it might have taken a decade or two longer to have developed self-sustaining, power generating piles because a peaceful and government-free society did not exist, and there was no great significant benefit in using nuclear power instead of coal- or oil-fired power (or hydro-) in the Anglosphere in peace that would have warranted the investment in developing nuclear piles, during that 1940-1960 era. ... On the other hand, many people will argue that without government interference, nuclear power would have been developed by private, free-market firms and research decades earlier." (04/11/11)
