There's an easy way to fix all of this. If any research at any point uses any government funding whatever - indeed if anyone does - 100% of the results and processes must then become entirely open and available to the public. No profiting from the funding of the citizenry as if you've a right to free money for private enterprises. Universities receiving so much as a penny should be forced to make all their research and everything else fully transparent. All of it.

There is a problem that my friend has in theoretical physics: only the mystical projects get granted.
So this means that basic science, or science that slightly conflicts with their myths, does not get the necessary funding.
