Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, I'm not in favour of colonial expropriation or slavery of any kind. And the point of my comment had nothing to do with combustion machines (which I see you have a mastery of). It was simply to say that the impact of the policy you recommend would be to increase energy prices. That's all.

Imposing a levy or tax on energy imports is from being a dumb policy. This is regular coffee policy in any government: Tax A to finance B through fund C. Plus, it's much much simpler than working on integrating 280M people and their government infrastructure into the EU. Really.
