There are many who will strongly disagree but.....
I've discussed the issue of patenting Bessler's wheel before, both here on my blog as well as on the besslerwheel forum, but since the question has arisen again I have decided to restate my own view.
I know and agree with all the arguments for patenting the device, but there is one overwhelming reason why it shouldn't be patented. Any government that sees this device as harming tax revenues from the sale of oil will be tempted to bury it under a secrecy order. Have no doubt, it will affect them in time and maybe sooner.
It will also have an impact on all the alterntive energies being so expensively researched. The solar panels so assiduously promoted even in our own fog-bound island will suffer a sudden decline in sales, possibly throwing people out of work and closing firms down. Plenty of temptation and plenty of excuses for a government to kill it quickly.
And don't even apply for a patent even if you intend sharing it freely afterwards, because a patent application can lead to a subsequent secrecy order.
OK, so what do we do? As others have advised, share it freely across the world by internet, video and other public media.
How to get remuneration? The media will come knocking at your door offering wads of cash for your story - take it or leave it, the choice will be yours and even if you do take it, it will still be a seven day wonder and then they'll forget you.
Don't patent, the risk it too great that it will be taken and buried.
