Corona Clunkers

Summary:
It’s going to take a whole lot of ether in the carburetor to restart the car business once the economy “reopens” (neat term, that; it conveys the horrid truth that government has successfully asserted – because people have accepted it – full Decider power to tell us whether and when we may live our economic lives – at its arbitrary whim.) There is already talk of Cash for Clunkers II – though it probably won’t be cash, as part of the Plandemic’s goals, in addition to Advanced Servility Training, is to eliminate cash in the name of hygiene. But actually for the sake of eliminating anonymity – and enforcing control. Every transaction you make – every cup of coffee you buy – will be known immediately to them. Data about your buying

It’s going to take a whole lot of ether in the carburetor to restart the car business once the economy “reopens” (neat term, that; it conveys the horrid truth that government has successfully asserted – because people have accepted it – full Decider power to tell us whether and when we may live our economic lives – at its arbitrary whim.)

There is already talk of Cash for Clunkers II – though it probably won’t be cash, as part of the Plandemic’s goals, in addition to Advanced Servility Training, is to eliminate cash in the name of hygiene.

But actually for the sake of eliminating anonymity – and enforcing control.

Every transaction you make – every cup of coffee you buy – will be known immediately to them. Data about your buying habits will be compiled, sold  . . . and used to make sure you neither pay for nor are paid for any work that is not fully taxed.

Also that everything you do is approved.

Anything you do that isn’t will be dealt with by throttling your ability to buy and sell. It’ll be like a credit card except one with a real-time-adjustable credit line – adjusted at the pleasure of the government, whenever you incur its displeasure.

Another coming nudge – which will be more like a shove this time – will be in the direction of electric cars, the non-electrics to be characterized as the “clunkers” of 2020 and anathematized in the same manner as walking around in public without a Fear Mask.

You have no right to get me sick!   . . . screech the deranged.

You have no right to hurt my environment!  . . . screech the deranged.

The difference then vs. now is that a virtue-signaling person afflicted with anxiety disorder about the “climate” could not force you to share his anxiety – or drive a Tesla. But if you can be forced to wear a Fear Mask – because “someone” might get sick – then why shouldn’t you be forced to drive an EV – because the “climate” might be in “crisis”?

One neurosis is as good as another.

Electrics have been off the radar scope for the past couple of months while the population has been adjusting to the “new normal” of not being allowed to do anything without the government’s permission.

But – cue Arnold Voice – they’ll be back.

Because they’ve already been mandated.

“Zero emissions” edicts that only EVs can meet, despite the production of lots of emissions, elsewhere. Federal mileage mandates that can’t be met without making lots of EVs, which plump up the “fleet averages.” One 30 MPG non-EV plus one 120 “MPGe” EV divided by two equals compliance with the current 35.5 MPG mandatory MPG minimums.

Worse, the industry committed to building millions of EVs, the pre-Corona virtue-signaling equivalent of Fear Masking now.

All that’s needed is a new mandate.
