Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Robert asks: I’m going to add to the end of your recent article about electric cars. You stated that the electric car push is to reduce cars to just the elite. I believe it is also to reduce mobility so as to increase control. Aka, agenda 21/30. The goal of any totalitarian government is ultimately control. Coral is all into cities so we’re easier to control. Restrict our movement. Part of the United States economic success has been its mobility.
My reply: Of course! And it becomes obvious when you ask a straightforward question: Why are electric cars being pushed so hard given all their many disadvantages? The market isn’t clamoring for electric cars; electric cars are being foisted on the market. Why?
Gas is cheap – and abundant.
Exhaust emissions have been reduced to near nil (and in the aggregate, are no worse than those produced by electric cars).
It makes no sense – unless the purpose is exactly what you’ve described: To get mobility under control so as to more effectively control the population.
Once you see and understand this, everything else about the bizarre rush-rush-rush toward The Electric Car Future makes perfect sense.
