The OnStar thing would be fine if you want it. You buy an expensive auto & it’s a sure way to stop the vehicle if it gets stolen. The issue is government control - mandating such things which will drive up the cost of all vehicles & adding a little extra something so that THEY can control us or fine us or whatever.
I’ve been angry for more than 20 years about the direction this country has been going. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to convince even those closest to me that Gov’t cannot be trusted. I guess they’ll figure it out when they start receiving fines for driving 30 in a 25 zone.
But they aren’t mandating OnStar, that was just the writer throwing in all kinds of extra junk to turn this into some sort of massive conspiracy. He mentioned that GM can remote turn off cars to enhance the paranoia. The issue is the two things actually have nothing to do with each other other than being linked to the computer.
You missed the point. The computers, with this buffer, have BEEN IN YOUR CAR FOR TWENTY YEARS. And nobody is getting fines for driving 30 in a 25. It’s important to temper one’s distrust of the government with facts. These buffers WON’T allow that kind of ticketing, unless you’ve been in an accident, because that’s the only time the buffer gets read. There’s no wireless transmission from these things, it’s all wired.
