The monarchy, politics, & warmongering are tied up by the spiritual debt delusions against Christ & His Doctrines, wherefrom are cited in 2 Thess 2:9-12; By using networks of thought processes aligned thereto gives world leads via Christ's opponent domain for wants of power, control, greed & ego issues, not spiritual leads by Christ & His True Doctrines.
Miners strike = not enough coal for the electricity power stations = 3 day working week to save the power = reduced income. Those long dark evenings playing cards by candlelight. Taking the dinner to cook in the neighbours gas oven. Then, the bin men went on strike, then the gravediggers. . . .
Alternator: turns the mechanical energy of the engine's rotating crank shaft into electricity through induction. Wires within the alternator cut through a magnetic field; this in turn induces electrical current. That current is used to power your car's accessories, which can be anything from headlights to the electro-hydraulic lifts on a snow plow. The alternator also keeps the battery fully charged, providing the power it needs to start the car.
