If you don't like the answer, well. I've got others. I wanted to take it in steps.

From The Guardian! For whom 'energy' means the stuff that flows from crystals along your chakras creating your aura. Hehe!

Why are those on the Left so obsessed with immigrants? Any insights, Cuch?
They are Disenfranchised. Just take the alienation from the means of production and extend it to alienation (Alien-nation) in general.

And here are some crystals - one is even a Lazarus crystal - a gift for the Solstice. : )

People are not in control of their density. We need bigger crystals.

I'd say that people can be in control of their density. They just have to make a hard commitment.

But my answer applies for destiny too! 

Not 100% control of course, but let's say anywhere north of 51% and you can work with it.

Champagne gives me heartburn and high blood pressure.

Texas is freezing, causing its power grid to fail. 
What's the cause of this unusual freeze?
Well, of course it's global warming, according to Bloomberg
Right  ...

Ooh - cold! Must be global cooling! Ice age! It also doesn’t help that Texas has (in a very Texan way) no regulations to speak of that would compel electricity generators to protect their equipment from freezing. Of course it doesn’t happen all that often (well, it didn’t use to...), but when it happens the grid operators and their customers are, to use a technical term, screwed. But in between the cold snaps, it’s cheaper this way.

Texas has really low taxes. Not having a functional government can be pretty cheap. Until it isn’t.
