    Save Power. Generated power. One car for private passenger use only. Hitler got that right. The volkswagon.

    Lets have the Volkswagon back and be done with it.

    I do not wish to see any other design model for passenger use( private),.

    Well, even if you could completely eliminate people's desire to be different and get noticed, The bug doesn't suit everyone's needs. My sister has 5 kids, 3 of which need car seats. Can't really fit them all in a bug. I carry lots of tools and building supplies, and tow a heavy trailer...a bug can't do that.


    Fixin' shit that ain't broke.

    Noooooo........ We need lots of different cars, the world would be so so boring with only one car and top gear wouldn't be nearly as good.

    In theory the idea makes sense, but in reality the car ends up being designed by lazy government sponsored bureaucratics, untalented organizations lacking vision, and creating something far from optimal for its' intended purpose. A free market with individuals competing ends up with a much better product and usually at a better price. The same tends to apply to science where we put our energy into government grants seeking predetermined results. This situation is inefficient and prone to misinformation.
