I understand what you're saying, but I think points A and B are sort of implicit in the discussion. Understood mutually?
Also, nationalizing oil may ultimately be a wise move, but the logistics are overwhelming. If nationalization of petroleum was enacted with the
current technological infrastructure in North America it would be worse than dropping an atom bomb on Wall Street, DC and LA at once. Total collaspe.
To nationalize petroleum in North America would be akin to suddenly deciding to become a communist state. It would be that radical and would require
incomprehensible amounts of small-scale citizen case management minutiae. Our Reality and World is founded on the petroleum market.
Remove the appetite. Alternate fuels/energy are the only solutions.
Oh yeah.. How about we cancel the Federal taxation on fuel and explicitly/blatantly forbid the oil peddlers in North America from pocketing the
difference. Say, for the next ten years? Until we get some real energy. See if we have zero-point power and keep the tech. and know how relatively
inaccessible, we'll just package and sell energy to everyone else.
Stars n' Stripes. Funky President, Ooogh.
