David Brin expresses the concern that many of us have that democracy is drifting into oligarchy. This is related to the fact that when energy is cheap then (skill-weighted) labour is the thing in short supply and wages are high. That's why coal and other fossil fuels created the middle class. When energy is in short supply wages are driven down and wealth inequality increases.
