Have you not read Atlas Shrugged? When the shortages begin to hit, the government will start a propaganda campaign against the greedy industrialists who are hoarding all the electricity. Rationing will begin, and the capitalists will be denied the opportunity to (legally) purchase power to keep their businesses up and running.
No, I haven’t, but should have. The book was published the year before I graduated from high school, but I was interested in pursuing my desire to fly and fight in the USAF.
Back in the day, when there were adults in charge, and one did not have to be so concerned about where the country was headed, one could and should be apolitical in the service of ones country.
Now that appears to be nearly impossible.
I read Atlas Shrugged years ago and if the idiots today manage to kill off ready availability of power to fuel their blogs, brew their latte and enable their texting then I think the useful idiots who blindly follow the idiots will be thinking more along the line of moving against their democrat buddies. There is a larger conservative population in Oregon than a lot of people believe. I wonder if the democrat party will be supporting the revolution in the streets that their dictatorial policies will bring about in the same way that they support the MB in Egypt.
