"Hey, let's export California's power to other states and charge them more to buy it back!" What arrogant rat bastards.
The irrational conspiracy theorist in the back of my my head can't help but wonder:
Enron started crumbling just prior to 9/11, an event which galvanized the nation behind Bush Jr. What a fantastic distraction away from the far reaching corruption that was associated with Enron, all the way up to the Bush family. How Bloody Convenient.
At one point they show a film clip of the Milgram experiments a few decades back, an experiment that almost 70% of people will, when asked by someone in a position of authority, do things that are increasingly morally objectional, up to to the point that it harms and KILLS another human being. Obviously, this a factor for many of the people aware of the corruption in Enron.
This kind of thing will happen again. And probably is right now with the Oil industry still.
Thanks to smoke and mirrors... and convenient distrations. After all, you can boil a frog in a pot of water if you increase the heat slowly enough. What's gas going to be this summer, $4 a gallon?
