    In the name of my Lord, king of compassion, DIE!

    ?
    .
    You tell me:
    .
    Man has pile of gold sitting at feet. Man sees another pile of gold sitting on ground stone’s throw away.
    .
    Man says, “No, I good. Pile of gold at feet is peachy. I leave other pile to birds.”
    .
    Or …does man try to stretch arms and hold both piles at once?

    Besides – what limit? If you control anything less than 100% there is always room to expand. Does Coke “back off” beating Pepsi’s face into mud just because it controls 90% of American domestic market? If average people drink 10 buckets of Coke soda a year in America, company will now advise “Whoa! Back off there! Six buckets is recommended!” Or they won’t try to entice consumers to “up” bucket level to 15?

    Better question, but less entertaining: what system of economics (or basic life-nature) does NOT encourage expansion? If you criticize capital for advancing, who do you applaud for not?
    .
    Who does not shoot for the low-hanging fruit?

    Updating a power grid might be more involved than supposed.
    .
    Germany pushes ahead with windfarms, but hasn’t yet connected them to their grid and has no concrete plans to do so – even as they finish off building these new alternative power centers.
    .
    Managers of the American grid have complained about its age and the need to update for decades, regardless of other concerns. Commercial-scale renewables are being launched, but the grid can’t manage their variable output or reach their off-the-beaten-track locations. No concrete plans to change that, either.

    And really, how does a democratic politician sell this to the public without getting his head cut off?
    .
    “Uh, I wish to spend insane billions of public money building techie stuff in your backyard so you can get electricity in your house …. just like you do, right now, except your taxes will double. But, in compensation, the new wires running around your house will come in lemon-scented or “Springtime Fresh” flavors. Uh, and no, we don’t actually recommend that you try to sniff them; high voltage. Stay back. But it may cut the ozone a bit.”
