After a certain point, it’s not paranoia

The latest brick in the wall is the predictably named “Moving Ahead For Progress in the 21st Century Act,” also known as Senate Bill 1813. (See here for the full text of the bill itself; the relevant section is 31406.) This legislation – already passed by the Senate and likely to be passed by the House – will impose a legal requirement that all new cars made beginning with the 2015 models be fitted with so-called Event Data Recorders (EDRs). These are the “black boxes” you may have read about that store data about how you drive – including whether you wear a seat belt and how fast you drive – ostensibly for purposes of post-accident investigation

........First, the EDRs could – and almost certainly will be – tied into your vehicle’s GPS. (Most new and late model cars, conveniently, already have this, too.) Then data about your driving can be transmitted – as well as recorded. To whom? Your insurance company, of course

.....This will create a surveillance net beyond anything that ever existed previously. Some will not sweat this: After all, if you’ve got nothing to hide, why worry? Except for the fact that, courtesy of almost everything we do being either “illegal” or at least “suspicious” we all have a great deal to hide. The naivety of the Don’t Worry, it’s No Big Deal crowd is breathtaking. Did the average Soviet citizen also “not have anything to hide,” and hence why worry?

But the last possibility is probably the creepiest possibility: EDRs tied into your car’s GPS will give them – the government and its corporate ƒück buddies – literal physical control over (hack) “your” vehicle. This is not conspiracy theorizing. It is technological fact.

If the price of petrol at the pump keeps rising most people will be priced out of driving anyway.
Quote:Near the end of a society or civilization, they typically become very corrupt. Either the government runs the businesses or the businesses run the government. - a famous quote from Dr. Faber

electric cars are coming in slowly. The modernisation of cars has been dramatic in the last few years. This is just part of it. Good thing I'll never be able to afford a brand new car.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?
