Imagine if our infrastructure wasn’t built for and maintained by profit motive. Imagine if having too much electricity was a good thing. Imagine if literally any system in this failed state was designed to actually be good for the people who relied on it

@FirstProgenitor I hate when my system is working TOO WELL and I can't extort people with it

@FirstProgenitor I think technically speaking too much power really isn't a good thing because the power grid needs to equalize input and output, but that's why we need good storage to balance that out.
It definitely isn't something that benefits from being marketified, blockchained or whatever

@emma @FirstProgenitor that is a really good point, and the article should absolutely have been about that instead of the market implications of plentiful energy
