Why doesnt Israel produce cars?

Postby barbarianhorde » Sat Feb 02, 2019 8:17 pm

As the world's most high tech nation perhaps apart from US and Japan it seems almost imprudent of Israel to not be staking the auto industry.

Now I read that they do have a startup for hydrogen fuel generation, a way to extract hydrogen from water that is efficient, so that's a basis.

But they need to go all the way.
Infinite possibilities for naming the company. But it would need to be something classy like the name of a Thoraic princess. Not just "Aleph" or some letter.
It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.

Firstly, the average Israeli (iQ 95) is less smart than the average Ashkenazi Jew (iQ 110).

Secondly, Jews are very linguistically and mathematically smart, which's in part why they make such good writers, bankers and theoretical physicists, but not so visual spatially smart, which's in part why they don't make such good architects, artisans, artists or engineers.

Thirdly, Israel is a tiny country with a tiny population, dwarfed by the US, and even other car manufacturing countries like Germany, Italy and Japan, so they're going to make less stuff in general.

Lastly, the US, Germany and so on may've already picked all the low hanging fruit, there might simply not be enough room for another major car manufacturing country.

Whoa, Italy leads the White Man. Thats awesome.

It makes sense to me. These people are quick to realize what is going on.

And Italy quite does produce cars.

St Lucia coming in at second from last, at 62.. who were they testing, the wildlife/the poorest demographic they could find?

..although, the brightest there get shipped off to America, Canada, the U.K. etc. to receive a top education.. leaving the lesser-intelligent behind to populate the island, which the Government and churches are currently not happy about, as.. over time, IQ levels will continually spiral downwards.. just compare the similar stats of the similar small islands, to see the emerging pattern of what intelligence-emigration creates.

Those remaining islanders can build anything/fix anything/do many things, but they cannot find an intelligent mate to pair up with.. the older generations are much more intelligent than the young, so case in point.

Many countries are also not happy about what intelligence-emigration is doing to their remaining societies.

Well at least those stats are explainable, but not then factually representative of those Nationals.. emigrated or otherwise, as the best have gone elsewhere.

Why would you go to the trouble of making cars when you could find car makers and people who want cars and get between them and make money on both ends?

Is this some "Jew comment", where trade is a particular and evil thing that only Jews do?

Why does the US produce cars if they can get between maker and buyer?

Explain yourself Adolf. ;)

I don't think he meant it like that. After all, getting in the middle is what he does for a living, stock trading and such. A beautiful craft.

Imagine a fucking Mercedes engeneer having to go out and fucking sell cars. Lol.

I think the US does it because they have to create jobs for people to maintain a voting block of people who vote for more jobs. Like American cars are shit, and the companies aren't profitable, so the state subsidizes them with the result of giving a whole bunch of people this sense that they're able to compete in that market and that they're earning their pay by doing hard work. If you're going to dupe the middle class into voting one way or another, then you've got to have a middle class, and in the case of auto manufacturing here...that group is subsidized by the taxpayer.

And I don't think that being in the middle of a deal is evil. I used to grow weed and then sell it to people. Then one day I found a lot of people who had more than they could get rid of. So I stopped bothering with growing it because it wasn't an efficient use of my time, and because I could buy way more than I could ever grow so I could flood the market locally and lower the price overall, thereby further extending my reach into the market as my customers now had prices lower than their former suppliers and could become suppliers themselves. Overall it did a lot to increase the quality of weed around here and it put a lot of money in people's pockets...especially mine. Did I work as hard as when I grew it? No. Did I make more off it than the growers? Yes. Did other people have to adjust and get acclimated to new market conditions in the local area? Yes. Was it evil? I don't think so, but even it it was I wouldn't care that much. Evil exists, and people from all races and classes perpetuate it. It's not something that's associated with one group exclusively. I'm sure there are some evil jews, and some evil nazis, and some evil whatever kind of other people you can think of, but there are some good ones too....except the nazis I mean they're kind of defined by their evilness. I believe that generally speaking, when we try and apply the attributes of a group to an individual that we more often than not will be mistaken. Broad strokes just aren't worth a shit when it comes to making judgments about the character of a person.

Like it can't be true that, "black people are like x" or "jewish people are like x", or "capitalists are like x" or, "socialists are like x" because inevitably you'll find individuals who don't fit those criteria but who are part of that group. Like a black guy with a small penis who uses good grammar, or a jewish guy who isn't looking for a job that required him to exploit the economy or control the media, or a capitalist who doesn't dream of owning slaves, or a socialist who is willing to work hard but just wants some guarantee that they'll get enough out of it to live with some dignity and security.

My advice? Grow the fuck up. Get rid of "evil" altogether. It obscures far more than it illuminates.

Yes, Im perfectly aware.

Notice I inserted an emoticon. You are so deeply apolitical that one can never truly take you for anything at all in that realm.
In an ideal world, youd simply find that you have better things to do than try to be wise in politics. As you clearly do, also since, in politics, you are a, whats the expression, a babe in the woods. Not sure if I use that phrase right. But you are so naive it could be delightful, if it didnt align you with the most horrific malice in history.

I mean I don't think there's some attribute that a person can possess that makes them inherently unable to act in a way that someone or another might call evil. I'm not even certain that the good/evil distinction is real. But even if it is, still...anyone can be evil...at least if they try hard enough and believe in themselves.

I think the apolitical thing is a little tricky, although you may be right about me on that point. It's sort of like when the news of the day is, "hey we have problem x in society, and here are some ways that it could be addressed"....I'm interested in weighing those possible ways of addressing the problem. I can't stand it when everyone stops talking about those possible solutions and instead starts hurling generalizations at one another. Like nothing ever got done by screeching back and fourth about what's socialist and what's communist and what's freedom and what's capitalism etc. It's just screeching. And it's a huge red herring that distracts from a lot of problem solving time. I wouldn't say that I'm naive about politics, but I would say that problem solving is a lot more complicated than simply picking an ideology and defending it all the way down to its actual flaws. No ideology is flawless, and defending one, whatever it is all the way down to its flaws is just kind of...well...you know...

Wait... are you advocating for socialism here? Like things should be fair? Everyone works the same job and waits in the same lines for bread? Fairness...what a crazy idea.
