Most people are ignorant of how their cars work. When something is lit that
is not usually lit or blinking, it gets our attention. I can't tell you
which lights go on when I first turn the key.
Just like most people don't care that much about what happens after they
flush the toilet - as long the stuff goes down the drain without a flood,
they are happy. And as long as there are no unusual lights on thier dash,
they are happy, too.
Yes, well it's been demonstrated that people in society have not been able
to adapt to a technological lifestyle, other than being a pure consumer.
People today know less about how the food that keeps them alive
is created, then at any point in history I think.
I don't think that state of affairs is really going to last, though. Not
the long term, over hundreds of years. Most of the ability of society to
exist as a collection of ignorant consumers is due to the availability of
cheap energy, and once the oil runs out, cheap energy is going to go
away. At that time people will have to go back to the old way of you
buy something then you keep it a long. long time, because the cost
to replace what you have with something new will be astronomical.
And the only way people will be able to do that is to learn to do their
own maintainence. (or a good portion of it)
The vast majority of people do not want to wait several weeks for the exact
car they want. Most people want a car right away. Plus, many of the
incentives may be gone when the car arrives.
And, people usually want the same group of things.
What's your point in posting this? You and I both know it can't be done
that way. You can either buy the packages they offer, not not buy at all.
The other option is to buy a stripper and then get after market parts to
get what you want. It may end up costing you more and not end up being
what you expected.
