Response to AntiFascist (Reply #23)

31. Good question

I would speculate that the answer is yes but who is driving that machine? I suspect that it may be something outside of government, there are entities that are as powerful or maybe more so than some governing bodies. Certain fossil fuel outfits come to mind, some of which have been operating in the gulf since WWII. Some of them have merged to become the most powerful entities on the planet. Another reason to eschew fossil fuels, and somehow dismantle the mic. Just my musings but I'm sure there's something to it since it's always about the oil and revenues acquired through that commodity. Mic can't function all that well without constant supply of that one element... the second most important commodity being humans to shoot weapons and to be shot at, makes for the emotive factor that recruits public support.

Good find.
