If you think Tesla is the first and fab electric car to come out then think again because breakthroughs usually fail at first. Tesla is good timing and pleasing aesthetics more than originality and craft. Turns out the idea of an electric car is quite old, older than some of us Millennials and especially Gen Z, the old idea was killed.
The world needed Electric cars and that was quite clear when the oil-producing nations were making it bigger than Game of Thrones moves onto the global politics table and turning themselves into giant superpower combat ready machines. If you make 70% of the world’s oil, you will go crazy too, because almost as many cars as people in countries like that rank from the poorest to the richest, all alike, then all the industrial use of oil and fossil fuel electricity production, people literally can kill for oil and that is exactly what happened to the innovation that could have changed the economic power structures, the electric car.
America’s money could have stayed in America, Saudi prince could have had lesser influence, reporters could have been saved from the violent suppressings and deaths, no war in Iraq and perhaps greater standards of living and GDP’s due to alternative investment in the nation itself if the electric car could have come out. But, sad life, it couldn’t because of the perpetrators of capitalist greed and big giant fuel companies couldn’t have enough of the misery that buying fuel gives to people, economies and the global ecology.
Especially through the specific experiment of the General Motors EV1 of the mid-1990s. It could have been Tesla, and GM wouldn’t have had to shut down plants cutting out jobs and erasing incomes today, but, no, greed wins over pride and people cauterize what is good for the public.
Shunning and silencing, well, that is the plight of every hit tech and somehow all of this history is repeating itself with bitcoin, depends if people and enthusiasts who live in the age of social media and digital justice, will they let it be condemned, shut and hated or will they fight back and stop the killers from making this heinous assassination a part of our history that tomorrow’s generations cringe upon?
We want the digital currency world to expand, spread and take over, because the global bridges it builds are the ones that give to the public and not take away from them, building bulldozers to run over the same very people who give out the profits, to begin with.
