" meant for the inventor to recover development costs and that is ALL." So no profit motive ? again a fairly collectivist view. again the tragedy of the commons.
I do not know the globe you reside Engineer-poet, your description of the patent process ascribes reasons amd motives well beyond the scope of the US Constitution. Article I, Section 8, Clause 8 To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries. As can be seen there is no equivalent verbiage to your "so that others skilled in the art can understand and use them" but instead states "exclusive Right" with no direction as to how they may use that right. You are of course correct that all law is part of the social contract, and any part of it may be changed as the society wishes... but not all change in improvement.
