I don't think this achieves what the people proposing the amendment intend. They're being stupid.
When a public service fails, and there are private alternatives, it is compared to them and eventually de-funded.
When a private oligopoly fails, or is wasteful, what happens? "We'll just raise prices"
Hello PSTN & Cable Co's. I
Similarly, since 85% of the energy in gasoline is turned into heat, it isn't helping. At 15% efficiency that is typical of internal combustion engines, you are down to about 5 kwh actually used to move the car, versus an electric motor which is over 90% efficiency. If you add that ICE has no regenerative braking, no means of storing kinetic energy for re-use, you have a further disadvantage for ICE.
I don't want to be that guy, but this is why you 1. Don't type fast when your command starts with rm -rf;
I typed this slowly:
2. Never rm -rf by absolute path at all;
3. Never start typing rm -rf at all, but type the rest of the command first and then edit in the rm; and
/<^H><^H>rm -rf ? how does this help ?
4. Don't use root shells, but sudo, and edit in the sudo last on potentially destructive commands.
sudo rm -rf / ?
There may be good reason to break one or more of these rules at one time, but never all four.
There is no substitute for just knowing what you are doing, and not doing the bad thing. I've seen people complicate their lives with incantations, and all it usually does is make it fail in a more complicated way. Simplicity is easier to remember.
