Let's also not forget that there have been no communist countries that were successful by any financial, social, or other meaningful measure

Sorry that doesn't make sense to me, I must be missing the point.

Subsidizing is always happening. If alternative energy sources are to take off, it must be subsidized in the u.s. Now we can argue our feelings all day
