An article with this level of simple insight would never get published on Slashdot.

You need to add a conspiracy:

Diesel is only available because ... big oil pushes diesel and bribes politicians to keep it available. Refining oil into gasoline without also producing diesel creates a byproduct with infinite energy per liter. If they stopped making diesel fuel, the oil companies would all go out of business.

If you kicked them out, then the pro-illegal alien crowd would jump on you with both feet.

It may not be politically correct to say it, but there are millions of illegals in the U.S. who don't have the required vaccinations. And they're still coming by the tens of thousands.

We could get rid of most traffic "laws" regardless of Teslas. We don't need a whole code of laws and penalties for everything everyone does. Change them from "laws" with penalties and police enforcement of every minute detail to "rules" with police enforcement reserved for recklessness and drunk driving.

People would drive more-or-less the same way they do now. No one wants to crash, and recklessness would still be punished by law. Police would be freed up to actually police bad guys instead of fundraising off of regular drivers.

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
