Every Gallon Kills
Militarized US energy policy begun under FDR is now acknowledged as a failure. With invasions now conducted by the Pentagon, proxy militaries and mercenaries in Africa, Asia and South America, the flow of oil is now decreasing as a result of this policy. Terrorism aside, energy security is higher and the cost lower where the militarized approach is not used.
The use of force to take oil supplies rather than simply purchase them from willing sellers is now an industry in itself, which explains why we will perhaps someday spend more on destroying oil-rich countries around the world than we spend on the product itself. The only way to abort this perverted mission is to dissuade our youth from becoming petroleum mercenaries and to persuade our neighbors to stop driving around like maniacs.
Every gallon kills.
