And now buy cars !!!

Perhaps you have missed the latest developments in the world of the Italian press. The three best-selling newspapers in the country, as well as the three most widely read newspapers on the internet, all ended up in the same hands, that is, in the hands of an auto manufacturer.

This thing of being a car maker, coupled with all-Savoyard contempt for the human being, is already producing interesting results today.

I don't know if you noticed it, but according to today's newspapers, you have to go back as before. It is necessary to retrofront everything. But absolutely everything.

Smart working? But it goes. We discover from unlikely "surveys" that employees do not like teleworking and burst with the desire to spend 3 hours in the car, in traffic, every day. To go to the office. Sure, no union has endorsed such data, but apparently the survey takes precedence over reality.

Moreover, there are always in the newspapers of the car manufacturers, CRIMINAL surveys according to which children would not like the remote school. (nobody wondered if he liked being confined to the apartment, which he did not do here in Germany: we could go out, provided we did not create gatherings of more than 2 people).

Now, apart from that such a survey conducted by telephone or internet would be illegal because the law FORBIDDES to do similar things ON CHILDREN, so there is no survey and if there is one, call the police, the newspaper tries to convince us that we must all costs that children go to school five days a week. Not even to say, I know, three days out of five. Absolutely not: all five.

Yet, having put two meters of empty space per child in the classes, staggering them might make sense. In my daughter's school they stagger for school years, like a few weeks the fourths, some the fifths, etc. But they are a montessori school and they don't have classes, ok ..

But all this must not be done, and Bulbo Cacciari has resurrected to say that no, socialization is needed at school. That the digital natives socialize largely via the internet is still eluding him. He's a philosopher, what the hell do you expect?

In short, we need to back off. Woe to the restaurants where home delivery takes place, trouble if the nightlife doesn't start again, trouble if the people don't start moving again .

This pandemic taught us one thing: when we move, most of the time we do it not because we need our body in another place, but because we have to bring information to another place. A meeting is a time when we bring information. And so we learned that, at least in the service sector, physical displacement is an exception and not the rule. And we can do without it.

Here, all this must disappear. Go back. Don't dream of it becoming normal.

Although all the specialists say that we will keep this for at least 2-3 years, for the newspapers of the pushers of sheet metal on wheels it is already over, and we have to "start over". You have to get back in the car.

Because that's the point. The buildings of stoves on wheels want us to get back on track, euphemism to say that we have to get back in the car.

Children no longer have to do school remotely, because the need to bring children here and there is one of the reasons why a family needs TWO cars. One for dad who goes to work (let's be clear, smart working MUST DIE, you need the CAR !!), and one for mom who accompanies the little ones to school and then to karate, and dance, and everything.

If we start to remove mom who brings the child to school….

Same thing for the car. If we start sending Daddy to do telework …

What are plugging sheet dealers afraid of? They are afraid that families will switch from two cars per family to one car. Because this step could saturate the second-hand market for at least two years. A second car used only to bring the baby to school is practically new.

And so ', the new newspapers of the four-wheel boiler that we call automobile today are working to cancel what happened.

This litany will be repeated to you every day, taking advantage of the catatonic state in which you are still, due to the post-traumatic stress, to the subdrop in which you fell after the gigantic religious BDSM session in which you were immersed: https: // keinpfusch.net/loweel/la-phase-thue

They will tell you that:

  1. school and distance sucks, children don't like it, and being an hour a day in traffic to accompany the child in the car is better than the victory of Samothrace. (cit)
  2. remote work sucks, "nobody" wants it and you have to die in traffic to meet customers / suppliers who you could ask for a videocall, to go to the office, to go home, etc.
  3. that the much reviled diesel today is safe. Clean. A breeze of fresh air. And it doesn't matter if it still emits CO2, and "clean" is about the amount of NO2. If it does not NO2 it is "clean", and if it is "clean" we will act as if it does not emit anything.

All of this is due to the attempt by the sheet dealers to keep each person in a car for at least two hours a day, and to make matters worse, to force each family to have at least two vehicles.

Their fear, I repeat, is that the crisis will lead families to consider the second car "renounceable", which would saturate the market for an almost new used car. And it would saturate him for years.

Therefore, they must all convince that it is necessary to get back on the road, which for them means getting back into the car .

Unfortunately it won't work. For several reasons.

  1. a car costs more than a child. And many today do not even have the money for their children. That millions and millions of new unemployed people will sell the car first, or at least the second car , is obvious. They cannot keep it, and the little animal drinks, eats and costs. The second-hand market will become saturated with second cars sold.
  2. crises accelerate ongoing processes. It was known that the Autowelle period was at sunset, but there is now a crisis has produced an acceleration. The German auto industry is aware of this and is discussing its conversion. The message seems to be unclear to the Italian gentlemen of sheet metal, who do not seem aware.
  3. Italian companies are mainly exporters and contractors. Which means that the decision is not made in Italy. If customers no longer want to have live meetings because they work from home, you supplier buy your camera and do as the customer wants. End of the story.

Point "3" is the one underestimated. It is underestimated because it is not clear that being an exporter and ESPECIALLY a contractor moves decisions out of your country.

Take the triveneto, this strange Italian appendix of Bavaria. It is made up of a huge amount of companies that are contractors. If the customer says "no, don't send your commercial here with the cool car (or plane) because I work from home and do everything using the PC", this is exactly what the contractor will do. Their salesperson will make a fast internet connection and obey the customer.

In this sense, the decisions of large customers spread over contractors.

The decision is therefore not made in Italy. Nor is the decision to make the conf call from the Italian company office made in Italy. If by chance the German customer has an "Ecological" or "carbon" ISO / TUV certification, and they announce on their website that their supply chain also has the same certification, it happens that the supply chain must have it. And therefore our Italian supplier will have to make people work from home at least TOT days a week (depending on the certification)

The Elkanns can have what they want written in the newspapers, but in the medium and long term, decisions will be made by customers, both contractors and exporters. The process that started was not only triggered in Italy, and the exporting countries will be affected by the decisions of their customers.

The same applies to school. The Elkanns can lobby as much as they want, but the Auto industry is no longer the most powerful lobby: the Microsoft, Google lobbies, which all want work from home, and the car lobby will soon be confronted, that although it is powerful it is less powerful . And therefore, once again, decisions are not made in Italy: if even the Elkann were to decide that Italy continues to do as always, at European level school standards (Pise, for example) could be modified to contain e- learning.

Ultimately, the auto industry came into conflict with that of remote services. If the quantity of things that are done without moving grows, the already impoverished families will sell first the second cars, then the first ones. The auto industries must necessarily apply the same reactionary pressures they applied against public transport and railways. But this time they have against bigger giants, who instead want to bring fiber, services and remote presence.

And they have tremendous media influence, as well as political influence. And they are sitting on a pile of money, while the auto industry has suffered huge losses.

I wouldn't bet on the Elkanns, in short.
