Physics is what will make clean and efficient energy technologies viable and cheap enough to be used more widely. They're working on different photoelectric technologies to make solar panels cheaper to manufacture. But it's not just limited to solar power, either.

In the (possibly near) future, physics will perfect the various technologies that will give us quantum computing, which is so much more powerful than classical computing that it could more accurately simulate biological systems, so physics will directly lead to various cures.

Err, no they shouldn't. Politicizing science is an awful idea. Can you imagine the acrimony in a string party vs loop party campaign?
Not to politicize science, to bring scientific values and thinking to politics.

Ignorance leads to superstition, which in turn leads to oppression.

Physics, at its core, illuminates our understanding of the world around us.

Learning is how we grow.
Ignorance leads to Fear, and as we all know, “Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” :biggrin:

Therefore, physics helps prevent worldwide suffering.
