You simplify a lot here and you say nothing about economic forces, instead 
you talk a lot about political decisions, but without questioning the 
reasons behind it, it stays shallow. What about the US and world 
dependency on oil? Who can supply enough oil in the near/far future?
The same is true if you want to discuss totalitarianism, which requires a 
look at social structures and the forces within. From that perspective 
your post is amazingly free of content and I don't really know what to do 
with it.
Anyway, this already way to offtopic and I'm not really interested in 
superficial political discussions and better stop this here.
