Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Can we dispense with the global or transnational relationship in this world as it is?

Not without reordering the nature of how business is conducted and without individual nations regaining actual sovereignty. That sovereignty has to include the ability to determint, at least to a significant extent, the terms of trade for your economy, unless your economy is self-sufficient.

I believe that the potential for economic self-sufficiency posed by renewable energy is seen a posing a fundamental, if not existential, threat to the current paradigm of global elites strip mining the societies of the world so as to divert all available wealth into their coffers and that this is a significant reason for the relatively slow pace that renewable energy sources are being developed.
