There is a New World Order in the Middle East. Privateers under the guise of the Islamic State are taking over. They run everybody out-of-town, and take over the oil fields. Privateers are just pirates that operate under the authority of the Crown. We the energy consumers are the de facto Crown. The refugees and the destruction of ancient historic sites could be considered a result of our energy addiction. Sure, we have cut out the middle man, the Saudis’, and saved ourselves a bunch of money. However is it right?
