Trump a symptom of declining net energy

Occupy, Tea Party, and the Politics of Less | ZDNet: "There are no quick fixes to this challenge. It has evolved over roughly half a century, through Democratic and Republican regimes alike, and we have roughly half a century to respond to it, starting right now.
