THE Truth with a capital "T" is written by the historians. If you stand back and look at our culture, both the plebeians and the patricians want the wealth of industry. They don't want to worry about efficiency and they are quite happy to have their children pay for their indulgences. Some are more indulgent than others, but the great ages are only defined by technologies that change the rules. The loss of fossil fuels will change the rules if other energy technologies are not there to replace them.<quoted text>
I'm not against the elites or those in power who support globalism or nationalism (except for those who own Big Oil). I do have trust in them to an extent but even that I find ironic. It's conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones (Infowars) and the media particularly Fox news that are contaminating the minds of people. It's people like Jon Stewart of Bill Maher that keeps the sanity of the people. lol. But that's my personal opinion.
For no other reason than our accumulated knowledge will eclipse our ability to exploit that knowledge, our entire point of view will change. Imagine being able to build rockets to Mars, but not having the energy reserves to attempt such a flight without lives being sacrificed to do so. We already attempt conservation, but we have yet to put a human cost to the use of resources.
I think that will define the next great age.
