    Biden declares he’ll remove millions of cars off the roads

Indeed, indeed, I’m actually toying with the idea to relocate to Texas if Europe and the Netherlands decent into a complete fascistic s*$thole, like Australia, and some other European countries…

    I think Jerry Brown in California tried this…

Now there are pieces of “Bullet Train” infrastructure out in the Central Valley that go from nowhere to nowhere.

Made some landowners wealthy selling.  Made union workers wealth building bridges and stuff.  Made mega contractors wealthy.

If this mess were actually visible to the public they would be outraged.

Converting impractical dreams into reality is not that easy, Joe.  Go ask Jerry.

Cars/trucks are certainly already under centralized control, through it’s not quite as direct as with rail and public transit. They do it through fuel distribution, mandatory registration, licensing, inspection, and insurance. The answer would be for “dumb” electric cars, that would allow decentralized power generation to fuel them. Imagine a tesla, but without any wireless connectivity or self driving/surveillance technology. Instead they’re going the opposite direction with them, making them blatantly under the centralized control of a tech company, all under the guise of being “green”.

Hang onto those old model cars, or better yet completely silicon free carbureted or mechanical diesels. Though difficult, it is possible to make plant based liquid fuels on a small scale. Plus, they don’t have a wireless kill switch or GPS receiver.

My new 2021 Toyota Tacoma is loaded with surveillance features that do not benefit me and I have no control over.  It has a forward facing camera up high in the windshield behind the mirror.  The images are not available to me, but they get transmitted back to Toyota Mothership, and presumably any insurance company and government agency, etc. they choose to sell the info to.

And of course there is the GPS that reports all locations to anyone willing to pay Toyota for the data.  And there is probably a third party in there for Toyota doing the data collection.

All this is explained in the manual as “safety” features.  But I read the fine print.

Toyota probably makes more money on the data sales than on the car sales.  If not today, then tomorrow, as this is the trajectory of business.
