I am with you on the oil dependency, too much leeway is given for the sake of oil and too much is started for the sake of oil. though as soon as the middle east is cleaned out the rest of Africa is about to get nailed....Again. Egypt is pretty messed up, but the fact they wanted a change is a silver lining.

Packing up and leaving and ignoring them on a whim of no more oil is kind of dangerous at this point too though. The middle east is messed up because of extremism AND more powerful countries coming in and using them and dropping them like dirty laundry when it does not suit them any more. Honestly they have every right to be pissed at the west. Don't confuse this with sympathising with extremest groups, just their regular population. They have been screwed by every possible side.

Sadly, if Canada stopped exporting oil tomorrow we'd have no problem fulfilling our own needs for a very long time. Thanks the the US we are forced to export much of it. NAFTA (Or SHAFTA as it should be called) is a big part of this problem.
