Armstrong Economics Blog/Regulation Re-Posted Jun 24, 2021 by Martin Armstrong
I have always been a sports car nut. I use to say the day I get an automatic, it’s time to die. Well, thank God I do not live in California. They have just outlawed manual transmissions. You cannot order a Porshe with a manual transmission in California. So exactly where does this lead? Will you eventually have your car confiscated if it’s manual in California? What if I buy one in Vegas and drive it to California? Would I get a ticket and have my car confiscated?
This is how society crumbles. Decisions are made by bureaucrats who are never put to a vote in any democratic manner. This is how tyranny flourishes. California has just entered the twilight zone.
