most of you were kids during the 70s Energy Crunch, so your information about it probably came from heresay. Those that have done some digging know that the 'crisis' was a 'manufactured crisis'. The government in conjunction with others withheld supplies and by way of the Media brainwashed the public into believing a 'crisis' was at hand. for example, if today the government used the Media in the same fashion 99.99% of the public would believe it and there would be a run on Energy: gas, coal, oil, fuel, etc.......... so: my question is do they or will they have the audacity to try it again? Just a thought.
