Let them freeze – let them pay sky-high prices and still freeze. Let them stock up on candles and blankets, let them have what they say they want. Let them have the unmitigated effects of RE and EV madness. And make sure its not a short scare but let them have it long enough they will remember. The most ardent anti communists come from countries where communism ruled for a long time, the most virulent atheists come from very religious societies and the hardest conservatives come from hardcore liberal families. Enjoying the effects of your own medicine has a strong palliative effect – it heals you from BS. Those folks want RE and EV – this is a free world – give it to them.
