Nuclear push...part I
To be honest, I probably haven’t been paying close enough attention, so this may not actually be an I told you so moment.
Sweden’s first banking family of former friends of fascism popped up yesterday, as elite-of-the-elite Jacob Wallenberg stepped forward to tell the coarser classes to buy nuclear power plants, tack som fan, do as you are told:
“Today, if you want to build a factory in southern Sweden you can’t do it because you can’t guarantee enough electricity…”
Okay, a message of elite capitalist self-pity would be a pretty shitty sales pitch if it were really aimed at the working class. I’m sure it has resonance with his pals in the business class, and the big city libs too. He moans about the political situation being unfriendly to nuclear development.
Perhaps we’ll have a coup. At the very least, we should get to enjoy an exceptionally robust media campaign.
It’s the only remotely feasible option, but it’s still a bad idea and almost certainly too late. We should be making plans to shut the others down safely, not building more.
I should learn how to knit.
