53. I see...

One: Incentives is only a dirty word when it applies to anything other than one party's mindset. When that party is getting them, it sure doesn't seem like a dirty word then. Two: Looking at the world from space just shows me that our American rot has taken over the planet. I mean, you do understand that this type of society works solely because those in power say it works. That is how they remain in power. It is not the only way things can operate, it is just the current way things operate. And, that operation has shown itself to be too corruptible and malignant to remain viable. (Face it, we give three billion a year to Israel while we have our own citizens starving and homeless. That is 'developed'?) Three: How can anyone suggest looking at the world as a whole when that world is becoming more and more unjust and biased? As I asked before... do you prefer things this way? Four: The plan would be to make buildings self sufficient as well. The technology that would allow your house to run would also be applied to buildings as well. Any structure would be able to install the means to generate power. (Assuming those who make such things can do so without being run out of business by the government imposing stupid rules and restrictions which started in committees that are controlled by those who make money off of... the grid! Amazing how this works isn't it?) Five: How does one make the current grid 'secure'? Because the only thing that I can see successfully doing this is the take over of the entire planet. (Oh yeah...domestic terrorists.. hmm.) Lastly: "That's not going to change."...

If you want a less corrupted, more equitable society, it had better.
