The Lebanese could not have imagined for a moment that the petrol queues that humiliated them, for months, could witness anything like it, so quickly, in Great Britain. They were surprised that the reactions, wherever the crisis befalls, must be similar, from jostling to exchanging punches and insults and even pointing out knives, to get a little bit of gasoline. They will be more surprised and feel some consolation when they hear about the news of the rationing, the power outage in China, the loss of medicine in Kenya, the paralysis of factories in Germany, the disruption of car production in Romania, and even the serious difficulties of two huge companies such as “Apple” and “Tesla”, and the list goes on.
Crises no longer distinguish between the able and the bankrupt, and have become part of the post-stone features. Some say it will last for months, and some do not see an end before two years. Instead of being wise and discreet, people came out of their forced prisons, in a state of frenzy and rage, and experienced the cruelty of disease, the brutality of death, and the darkness of isolation.
It was natural for the price of fuel to rise, for every movement needs energy, let alone those who saved and were deprived, and relief came to them. And the use of fuel means an increase in bills, from a loaf of bread to a plane ticket. To complete the drama, the electricity crisis was not limited to those who use gas only, such as France and Britain, but also included those who still depend on coal, such as Germany and China. Demand is high, and the attempt to reduce emissions has raised prices. And China got into trouble, because it imported coal from Australia, which is in conflict with it, or Indonesia, which reduced production and raised prices. China has no choice but to impose restrictions and reduce consumption, which has affected the production efficiency of the largest factory in the world, from which we import everything from needles and threads to missiles, which will get everyone in trouble.
“If China sneezes, the whole world catches a cold.” This is true when a pandemic strikes, as well as when machines stop working. The problem there extends beyond manufacturing to supplying as well. And soon, we will find a shortage of some types of clothes, furniture, toys and even notebooks and pens, and from now on, the scarcity of electronic chips portends disasters in various types of industries. In Japan, Toyota was forced last month to reduce the number of cars produced by half, due to the loss of chips, and many like them around the world. It takes place in secret.
Here in terms of supply. Exploitation is beyond description, and monopoly is not an Arab or Lebanese invention. Six thousand cargo ships roam the seas and oceans, the vast majority of which own only ten companies that control the necks of humanity. With the rush of buyers and consumers’ prices, they are able to raise their prices, as they like. The rent of the transport container was two thousand dollars on average, and it became subject to speculation who pays more, until the cost reached 25 thousand dollars and it may rise, as long as there is someone who pays and sacrifices in order to obtain the lost commodity.
From South Africa to Alaska, and even to Russia, which manipulates gas prices and controls the temperature of homes at the gates of frost, blackmail and rush will pay the price. In a census conducted last year, there are 35,000 homes and families in Europe who did not have enough income to heat their homes, which means that the number will rise and the need is urgent for governments to intervene and protect the most vulnerable.
Every country has its crises, as in Britain, which came out of Europe with vague agreements, and on the hinge of a pandemic, and without preparation, for a shortage of workers that it does not know how to fill, so I was surprised that it was without truck drivers, or even those who harvest the crops, or transport goods on the shelves of shops. Europe has its pitfalls, Lebanon has the corruption of its rulers, and Syria lacks the nerve of life after a fierce war, but you add to all this sickness, the storms sweeping the planet that no one was prepared to confront.
At the height of the preparation period for the transition to clean energy and the boasting of the imminent dispensation of polluted oil, in the major countries, everyone discovers that there are insufficient plans, and that all projects appear to be junk, expensive and chaotic, and require a long time and present minds, to reach safety. Environmentalists have no choice but to return to gas, gasoline, and diesel, and pay the costs of all plastic products, even if they hate it, exponentially.
Neither the sun nor the air, under current technologies, is sufficient to provide a smooth life for tens of millions of people in a bustling city, nor is electric cars the solution that dispenses with gasoline. And one of the environmentalists promises that the only way out, with the high prices, is to go to the adoption of public transportation completely, so that the use of the car becomes defective for its owner, just as the cigarette turned from a symbol of liberation in the sixties and seventies of the last century, to a symbol of indifference and abuse of others, and the dissemination of toxins, With the end of the millennium.
Some may think that what we are experiencing is transient, but the fluctuations in the balance of power, conflicts, and rearrangement of balances around us are never innocent, from fueling these crises or playing on their strings, or using them for revenge, revenge and scoring points. This indicates that all kinds of weapons are permissible, and the economic war will be decisive.
