Re-watching both Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace tonight. Interestingly, Quantum's plot in Solace, to seize control of Bolivia's newly privatized fresh water supply--
Nationalization of a private industry, mind you
No, their plot isn't to nationalize Greene's company. The plot is to essentially have Greene's company control Bolivia's water supply with a puppet government. It's the opposite of nationalizing an industry, really. When you nationalize a company in a democracy, you put it under the control of the democratically-elected government. Quantum's plot in Solace was to end Bolivian democracy and put the Bolivian government under the control of a private company.

And meanwhile, their plot is one that's actually been used by real-life rightists.
And what are their methods? Effectively, to fake climate change.
No, their method is to use real climate change to explain their damming of the Bolivian water supply, and to then put a puppet dictator in power who will give them a monopoly on the water supply. The plot also brings to mind the behavior of Enron, which rather famously fraudulently created scarcity of supply for California's electricity back in 2000.
Democratic socialism is the hope of human freedom.
