It's somewhat unfortunate that the author of the first linked essay did not choose to direct his attention on the people that are actually the likely ones to get us to practical fusion before the end of times finds us still waiting to achieve it "soon" - the small lab at Lawrenceville Plasma Physics [1], instead of the huge Tokamak at ITER. Sure, they are not remotely as sexy a "story" as ITER, but in the last decade they made tremendous progress and actually expect to demonstrate the feasibility of breakeven fusion in a year or two, instead of the "maybe in a few more decades" of ITER. See a quick (even if old) comparison at [1] - they are much further ahead now. And they are definitely worth watching...
