Equal Money System FAQ: Cars - who will make them and who will get one

Cars - who will make them and who will get one

Cars are practical tools in the transportation system for us to move around to different locations physically in the world. So cars will still be manufactured and distributed in the Equal Money System. This can be part of the transportation system within the global logistical system for the support and distribution to all equally in EMS. How exactly that is going to work we will all have to decide within the principle of what is best for all.

Practically there exists the necessity of both public transportation such as trains, buses and private transportation such as personal cars.

In the current consumerism economic system, people are promoted to buy and use personal cars as much as possible because of the profit linked to the car industry, which is currently also directly connected to the massive profit-involved oil industry through the dependency of oil consumption by cars. Because of the system is driven by profit and greed rather than consideration of practical living, cars as well as other products in the current system are not made to last long. They have to break so that people can buy more. More products are sold, more profits are gained. Cars with lower quality have to be deliberately manufactured to serve the need of those with lower income. It does not make sense to produce a product with a lower quality when we have the ability to produce it in higher quality, does it? Why not produce all of the products in the highest possible quality? Yet that is what is promoted in our current economic system - a system without common sense. In the EMS this will change. The EMS is based on the principle of what is best for all – a principle of practical common sense. Profit and greed will no longer be the driving force but consideration of life, practical functionality and expression. All cars will be manufactured in the highest possible quality. So that people driving in the car can be well protected rather than injured or die in case of an accident because the car is deliberately made of a lower quality due to profit factor.

From a common sense consideration, it is also still necessary to have a person get a license to ensure their qualification before they drive a vehicle so that they actually know how to drive and what to do in different situations when driving a vehicle so that it does not cause potential danger to anyone. That is best for everyone’s safety.

The various brands of cars will not exist in the EMS. If you look at all the brands in the current system, what is the actual practical functionality of them? Is there actually any? Do they hold value merely because people believe in them through advertisement to generate ideas/beliefs/desires within people’s minds so that more products can be sold and more profits can be gained?

The air pollution problem of vehicle exhaust can also be solved more easily when the profit and cost factors do not stand in the way in the EMS. Our current technology has already been able to make cars that do not depend on oil and pollute the air, but use water, electricity, hydrogen, or compressed air etc and thus more friendly to the environment. The major resisting factor to the implementation of these solutions is still profit. In the current system, the car industry and the oil industry are dependent on each other. If cars no longer use oil, the oil companies will lose profit. In the EMS, with the removal of the profit factor, we will all be able to make informed decisions on what fuel we use for cars within the principle of what is best for all. That of course includes the consideration of our influence on the environment we live in – on the air that we breathe because everything we produce and place into our environment will have an influence back onto ourselves. We have to consider the consequences of what we do onto our environment and thus onto ourselves.

With regards to who will get a car in the EMS that will depend on whether there is such a need for a car. Each one having a car is not necessarily practical. If there are too many cars in this world, there may not be enough space among cars for the traffic to move effectively or enough places to park cars. Imagine the extreme situation where the surface of the whole planet is covered with cars then not even one car can move. Of course the effects of too many cars do not have to get to such an extreme to be revealed. You only need to consider the hours wasted in traffic jams each day you go to work or when you spent half an hour finding a parking lot. Cars are supposed to make life easier not the opposite. Implementing more effective public transportation is a suggested practical solution. In the current economic system, the public transportation is not designed and functioning at its fullest potential. One reason is the profit-driven factor to promote the car industry so the public transportation is suppressed. If we establish well developed effective public transportation such as bus, train, and subway etc, people will start to realize the merit of public transportation and may start to like taking them because it is practical. Then we can effectively reduce the unnecessary amount of cars and help solving the corresponding traffic issues. It is also possible that we can find practical solutions to solve the current traffic problems even without reducing the amount of cars so that the transportation system is more private-transportation based. So there may still exist the two aspects of public transportation and private transportation in the transportation system in EMS. We will just have to see and decide how exactly to make these two aspects work together as effectively as possible.
