If it became known that someone came up with some sort of "John Galt" type way to generate super-cheap and pollution-free energy anywhere with a relatively small lightweight device, they and everyone around them would be killed or otherwise silenced, and all their research, experimental data, and any experimental models confiscated and/or destroyed faster than one can say "drone".
A bullshit assertion because it has never come up.
How would you know if something was successfully suppressed, given that the definition of "successful" includes those who use bullshit assertions themselves while attempting to label others statements as such?
They want energy and energy distribution systems which they can control and use to confiscate even more of people's hard work better and thus control people better while enriching themselves, not better/cheaper/cleaner energy that empowers the individual and allows them the freedom to be less dependent and more self-reliant.
Note this didn't happen in the internet world with stuff like email or web pages.
Of course not. It was a government-funded research project, FFS. It also makes them money and allows them to more easily, cheaply, and completely identify, monitor, track, and perform data analysis on any individual or group as well as provide valuable feedback on propaganda effectiveness. The wet-dream of a tyranny, beyond even the "telescreen" of "1984" fame.
And once again, it's demonstrated that it's easier to make up shit than to actually come up with economic energy producing technology.
The "economic" part is easy if government reduced or eliminated artificial government-imposed restrictions that are more to do with ideology, politics, and social engineering than actual safety, cost, or environmental impact.
This will also help reduce the effects of "regulatory capture", revolving-door, etc we've seen for decades getting worse with every added regulatory agency, dept, and bureaucracy, and actually improve enforcement and effectiveness of those core regulations that actually work to improve safety, cost, and reduce environmental impact.
But again, that would disadvantage those in power. And I mean all of them, not one party or wing...or even one nation. The US isn't the only nation facing dire economic circumstances or experiencing loss of individual economic and civil freedom and increased government intrusion and control. All of them that have had controlling government power between them over the last 60-plus years that want to increase their control and grow their power even further.
This hasn't happened in the US or the world overnight.
The world right now, especially in the West, reminds me of Prohibition-era Chicago and the gangs that divided up Chicago into "turfs" and who all had corrupt politicians and officials in their pocket to make certain people kept drinking and making them money and giving them power, while they fought over turf, alcohol supplies, power, and money.
That's actually a pretty good analogy for the "NWO" as well. It isn't some shadpwy, tin-foil hat conspiracy. It's simply gangs of corrupt assholes in power in each country warily cooperating with other gangs in each helping to oppress the other's people (keep 'em drinking/consuming/monitored) while increasing their own power, control, and wealth.
If you're oppressing your people, you don't want some other more-free, less-oppressive country around to give hope and possibly asylum and other assistance to your dissidents. It's simply common self-interest among those in power in the West (and increasingly including the East/ME as well).
The *real* fun will begin when the US dollar crashes and the supermarket shelves become bare. That will either be the trigger for, or be triggered by, economic collapse in the EU. It's dominoes all the way down either way.
This in turn will trigger a cascade of major national and international changes and events, and global and national power structures and ideological/political paradigms will shift and some collapse. Many will die globally from wars, rebellions, military coups, riots, purges, even mass genocide and starvation, exposure, and disease within a very short span of time.
