  1. Back then we did not have the notion of specialists as in scientists, engineers, technicians. People did what they did and were free to work and experiment as they chose. Strangely enough the few universities of the period did not touch these areas of study. It is arguable that since modern universities etc. were created we have lost a lot more than we gained.

  2. Scrap the patents and copyright systems (but keep and enforce trademark protection) and watch a constructive economic explosion or restrict ingenuity by protecting vested interests and stand by as your society slowly stagnates and folds.
