His understanding of the word "mandate" is completely opposite of the definition. WRT a representative government, a mandate is the wishes of constituents expressed to their Representative.

But hey, let's just make stuff up.

I agree, this is a big problem. Thermal runaway is no joke. A local resident here had his home burn down because of their Tesla experiencing thermal runaway. They plugged their car into a power strip of all things. While this was entirely avoidable, its still a danger and its one of the reasons I hesitate to park another EV in my garage.

Newer lithium iron phosphate chemistry is much safer with thermal runaway only occurring at much higher temps than older car battery chemistry.

Using a power strip on a car is beyond ridiculous.

Any relation to the EV movement beyond that can be imagined as a target to discredit the idea, without actually challenging the specifics of this particular point.
You're digging a word salad hole that is AI esque. Nothing that you've said has explained how you compared civil rights movement to EV mandates.

They are similar in that they both require mandates to be effective. This was stated in my original reply.
