This Week’s Quote: “We live in an age of artificial scarcity, maintained by ignorance and fear. The government has been paying farmers not to grow food…Labor unions, business and government conspire to hold back [technology]…The utilities advertise continually that “solar power is at least forty years in the future”…These propaganda advertisements are just a delaying action, because the utilities still haven’t figured out how to put a meter between us and the sun.” —Robert Anton Wilson
