Profession: Engineer/Designer

Inspired by: My military service. After 3 global deployments I witnessed how the suffering of humans is largely based on resources. Some regions and peoples of the planet don't possess or have the means of extracting valuable resources in large enough volumes to create prosperity for themselves. Furthermore, the more developed nations of the world consume them at a higher rate and thus find themselves needing to control those resources production creating a disparity in availability of those resources and resultant wealth. I found the solution is to create technologies that allow for greater autonomy of all people. This way a greater number of people can provide for themselves the resources needed to develop into a more advanced culture if they so choose.
