In the show, the Decepticons were always stealing Earth's natural resources for energy. This was a metaphor for what goes on in the real world. Take for example, Billion Dollar company's quest for Oil & water, 2 or our most precious natural resources, w/o regard to human welfare. The same is true of the Billion dollar industries that control our food, our most vital resource, with more concern for profit over Human health, take a look for yourself, at who are earth's real life Decepticons & plunderer's of Earth's Natural resources & energy. In 1992, at age 12, Severn Suzuki knew of the world's Natural Resource problems & raised funds to travel 5,000 miles from home to warn adults at the U.N. in 1992 of impending danger. It's now 2010, little has changed. Are we going to let the Decepticons take over the world, or are we going to act as heroic autobots & fight the tyranny of the REAL Decepticons?
