Free energy? That would destroy consumerism. Oil maintains the system in place. No oil. No consumerism. America is never surrendering it's addiction. We would rather create a global war than switch.

There are striking parallels between the BRitish empire at the start of the 20th century -- and the US empire today. We are following in the footsteps of the Brits. At that time the Brits faced the rising economic power of Germany -- and this led to WW I and WW II.

Expect global war at the end of the US empire -- unless we can wake up enough people, in time, and prevent it.
