Tommy Kim Posted over 2 years ago Connect humankind on a forward trajectory of dreams & desires... with one simple idea.... My dream for the future of humanity to embrace truth. When you have people like T. Boone Pickens selling his cause at TED to "get off foreign oil" and everyone cheers and applauds him for his message, one has to look beyond his words and see the ugly truth behind his message. The idea that if the USA stops importing oil from other nations alluding that energy would be cheap and accessible to all is simply a lie. He doesn't tell you that the oil that sold on an open global market to the highest bidder. He never advocates for nationalizing the oil so that it belongs to the citizens of the US so that "getting off of foreign oil" has any effect. He doesn't tell you how any fossil fuels extracted from the USA are the property of the companies. And that those companies will sell to whoever will pay the most. He never once mentioned how the US has become a net exporter of gasoline and the US has reduced the consumption of gasoline over the past year yet prices continue to rise. I don't see how a group of our elites attending TED can't see through his transparency. My dream is for humanity to start telling the truth, the real truth.
