The most powerful form of energy is human ingenuity. I will forever stand in awe of the sheer resourcefulness of an entrepreneur that has been cornered and fights like hell to turn himself around. No other thing matches this motivations and inspiration. No government program can recreate it, no clever system simulate it. Bad news for the top-down people. Free societies will always beat anything befoe them in the end. Freedom hurts, but this pain brings out the best in us. The shale drillers are a testament to this principle.
