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, it’s still a danger and it’s 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.

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.

The constituents are the ones participating in the democratic process, in case you missed it.

Again, your consistent attempts to derail the discussion with these veiled personal attacks is almost impressive, but it's counterproductive when taken to these obsessive extremes.

They were examples of enacting the will of the people that not all people agreed with. Not everyone wanted desegregation, yet court-ordered enforced integration was necessary.

I gave both definitions in my previous two posts. But they both work:


  • The "mandate" was the authority given to the elected officials by the constituents to enforce the A14
  • The "mandate" was the order given by the courts to enforce integration

They were both necessary tools to make this democratic policy effective. Hence, a "mandate" is in line with democratic values. This is in opposition of the last sentence you stated here in bold:

Whether or not EV policies themselves reflect a will of the all people requires further discussion. A discussion I suggested in my post, I might add.
Time and again we see governments taking steps that clearly aren't within the mandates they were elected on. It's not just the USA.

Apparently, some people believe that language wasn't allowed to evolve after 1971, the invention of the internet, and existence of social media. Regardless, all of these definitions work, and the cherry picking by certain individuals is just an attempt to create distractions.

I find the tangential direction this thread has taken of late to be very amusing. I love you guys.

If we keep going down this rabbit hole we will be doing recursive ontological inspections of being and "is"ness.

The IRA of 2022, which extended EV incentives to 2032, was passed by the House with a 220-207 vote by publicly elected officials representing their constituents. Congress passed it with a 51-50 vote. Both were straight down party lines.

Whether or not an individual feels like this represents the will of the people might depend on what side of the fence they are on, and if they think their will supercedes everyone else's.

I haven't visited this thread in probably a year, but the echo chamber it became degenerated to low standard masturbatory back-patting and groupthink.

The tangential directions are a panicked reaction of those whos debating muscles in this subject matter have atrophied from lack of use.

That's only confusing for those too lazy or unwilling to empathize and educate themselves... but that's another discussion we shouldn't be having here.

That thread was obviously deleted.

You're just obfuscating the original argument by questioning the meaning of mandate with some fancy copy paste etc. Now tell us why you support or are against or are neutral to the ICE ban and EV only sale mandate

The discussion on the word "mandate" was initiated by yourself and Efthreeoh elevated it to another level in 5 posts.

I merely participated in trying to counter the obfuscation of the word. I wish I didn't have to, but given the tendency of the echo chamber participants to have selective memory, misquote, distract from what was said, and put words in people's mouths, I unfortunately continually have to quote past posts.

It's quite hypocritical to reprimand me for replying to comments directed at me while you and Efthreeoh feel entitled to do the same.

Allow me to remind you of my neutral stance:

If you want to argue that the EV doesn't reflect the will of the people, then by all means. (Your welcome)

However, you couldn't be more wrong about the word "mandate" itself... it is essential to Democracy.
