So corporate funding is never behind misinformation. You wake up.

The government dictates the amount of consumption a corporation is entitled to, rather than the free market.

Good point. Probably means growth for the garbage industry either way. I mean we already gave up leaded high test, theres no need for panic here.

If energy rationing is the goal, and corruption is the reason, then some questions:
1. Energy rationing is the goal of whom?
2. What would be the premise be based upon such that there would be rationing? (in other words, what would the justification be? how will it be sold to all the rest of us unenlightened sheep?)
3. Who is, or who are, the corrupt actor/actors? Would it be singular people, or would it involve organized entities?
4. Is the coming corruption vanilla "line my pockets for wealth and power" corruption or is it a grand over arching world wide conspiracy_ to remake mankind in a millennial historic sense?

5. Are there any scenarios where a controlling power could ration energy availability that is not due to corruption? Was gas rationing during WW2 in the USA, Great Britain and elsewhere only due to corruption? Or does the possibility exist that average decent people devised policies so as to manage a crisis in a manner that caused as little suffering as humanly possible?

There's no conspiracy, industries that face extreme competition want the government to pick the winners and losers, industries that have zero, want the lowest regulation. e.g. Big tech is the most competitive, and the least is agriculture, or perhaps oil/gas.

It's pretty obvious if you simply pay attention and think critically. And I don't listen to "alt-right talking heads" or hardly even watch TV or listen to talk radio, etc.
