Yet another “following the money” case benefiting the gas/energy industry mainly. When profit seeking dictates the mind, one can be sure that everything is a scam as it exposes the subjectivity of value… materialism is an illusion, Maya in Sanskrit… we are being destroyed by an illusion and the only way to stop it is that the ego acknowledges it. So the answer is within each of us. Do not wait for the others to change first… change yourself and spread the word, mirror this change in every fashion possible!

EC BLOG: The Subjectivity Of Value
On a regular basis, Earth Custodians will have to go through intense and challenging discussions and the ‘Open Letter Series’ is meant to share possible answers as how to address the tremendous mental resistance to let go monetarism. Earth Custodians will often have more chance to justify their stance if able to stimulate the right questions. There is nothing to compete about but demonstrate the ability to initiate a dialogue whose logic stands by itself. … MORE AT THE LINK

Get Rid of the Daylight Saving Time: It is ludicrous to think that DST makes an extra hour of natural light available to anyone. Depending on the season and distance from the equator, the sun shines the same number of hours per day no matter where your clock’s hands point or what its digits display. That simple observation undermines the old saw crediting DST to farmers. Livestock do not wear watches and do not awake to alarms….. https://www.newsday.com/amp/opinion/commentary/get-rid-of-daylight-saving-time-1.17225691
22 Reasons Why Daylight Saving Time Needs To Be Abolished | DST was designed to give people more time in sunlight, and ostensibly to conserve energy—but many prominent studies have proven we get little if any benefits from the practice. A U.S. Department of Transportation study in the 1970s concluded that total electricity savings associated with daylight saving time amounted to about 1 percent in the spring and fall months—and that was offset by the increase in air-conditioner use.
A more recent study in 2006 found similar results, which was noted by two academics wrote a NYT Op-Ed piece in 2008. They argued that not only is there little scientific proof that this reduces energy consumption—it’s actually more wasteful than not. And super annoying, which we already knew.
Downing, a hero who wrote a whole book about how stupid DST is, believes we waste much more energy than we save. Gas consumption always goes up, something the gas industry has known since the 1930s, and scuttled to the side. “Every time the government studies [DST], it turns out that we are really saving nothing when all is said and done,” Downing says…….. more http://gothamist.com/2014/03/08/22_reasons_why_daylight_saving_time.php
Daylight Saving Time does not save energy | March 5, 2014 | Gas consumption goes up during daylight saving time—”something the gas industry has known since the 1930s,” Downing says. That’s why it lobbied hard to reintroduce DST after two short-term experiments with it to conserve electricity and other energy resources during World Wars I and II….. https://phys.org/news/2014-03-daylight-energy.html
Either We Thrive For Utopia… Or Dystopia
Utopia is the only way out because even if perfection does not exist, we can remain flexible mentally and correct what needs to be in a timely fashion but it requires Voluntaryism. As you read this, Dystopia, which feeds on greed, fear and control, is clearly taking over because many cannot handle the idea that they are responsible for what is, everything and all that happens to society and spend more time whining and blaming the political classes instead.
