Bringing the Oil Wars Home

Perhaps the clearest distinction between the Trump and Clinton agendas is the geography of war. The notorious war hawk Hillary Clinton emphasized the conquest of foreign competitors for control of the international oil market, while the demagogue Donald Trump seeks to vanquish domestic opposition to US domination of energy production.

Both Trump and Clinton support expansion of American military prowess and energy dominance, making this difference in emphasis less important than their mutual agreement on the virtue of force, as opposed to the rule of international law. Both of their philosophies result in a devastated environment and dystopian society.
