By wiredweird HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on November 9, 2012
... Sooner or later, you run out of other people's money." So said Margaret Thatcher and so said Ernest Bramah, over 100 years ago, though not is quite those words.

This remarkable book examines a past that never came to be. In his England of 1907, Socialists have been voted into office on promises of a life of financial ease and safety. Over time, the benefits gradually expand to cover nearly every aspect of life - even unions' strike funds were obsoleted by the government's promise of guaranteed income. As the dole state expanded, so did the need for new funds to dole out.

Then, in a carefully planned and meticulously executed civil action, a shadowy organization devises and carries out a boycott: No one will use coal. This would have had seismic effect on the economy of the day, driving the coalworks and miners out of business and onto the dole, followed by the coal distribution networks, the sweeps who cleaned chimneys of coal residues, and so on. The brilliance of this plan lay in preparation. Foreign governments, their own coal industries collapsed under cheap imported English coal, impose punitive tariffs. At a stroke, the foreign demand evaporated with so much of the domestic demand. At the same time, foreign suppliers of oil lamps, oil stoves, and most especially oil itself leap into the vacuum with huge supplies of their goods prepared in anticipation of the coal boycott. By the time the government imposes its own tariffs to block foreign energy, it's too late. The resistance has already stockpiled hundreds of millions of gallons, which they distribute to their membership at pre-tariff prices.
