Aha, but guess what? The ilk have an answer for technology, and that is called electricity. When they have shut down all the coal plants and torn down the dams, and opened all the wind and solar farms, there will be shortages, and they will be forced to dictate where the electricity goes. Smart meters, ever heard of them? They will be used to ration electricity. They can turn you on and off at a whim. Welcome to India, my friends.
Aww, why did you have to rain on my parade? ;-)
I refuse to give up hope. I think people will always find a way around the dinosaurs in government. It may not be easy, but it will be done.
