One should not forget that tokamak fusion has the track record for fusion power output and is very close to break even with known scaling laws. This coupled with the fact of inadequate total funding for fusion research has led to the current situation. There has always been many ideas to explore in fusion, but the high risk ideas have gotten too little resources. Now with the availability of private funding the situation is changing. But to be able to compete with tokamaks the dark horses need to show equally good or better performance. With no clear winner in the race it is still too early to bet on one horse only, so the funding should be increased so that the full potential of the different ideas could be explored.

Temperature, density, confinement time: pick any two.

Why is it that folks don't understand that money is not money, there are always the fine print details. Money from government has finger prints of cronies, politicians, and career bureaucrat minions. VC's are treacherous, but they are not like herding cats and snails.

VC's are looking to make a profit, and the good ones will defer to the man who understands the venture or pull out. Government money usually have more complicated objectives and micromanagement.
