Covid Capitalism

For most people, buying a car is not a pleasant experience. Getting a new car is always nice, even if you are not a car person, but the process of getting it is almost always a hassle due to how cars are sold in America. Getting a used car can eliminate the hassle of the dealership, but then you have to worry about getting hustled by someone trying to unload their lemon onto a sucker. The car market is extreme capitalism, where no one gives a sucker an even break or smartens up a chump.

Strangely, this makes it the ideal place to understand what has happened to our society over the last six months. For example, every car dealership website now has a prominent banner informing the visitor just how much the car dealer cares about the health and safety of their customers. There’s usually a link to their page detailing just how much they care about you, the sap they hope will buy a car from them. All of these mission statements are titled, “Our Response to COVID-19.”

In case it is not obvious, a business built around the phrase caveat emptor is not concerned about the safety of anyone, even the employees. Like every business in extreme capitalist America, the car dealers see an angle in presenting themselves as guardians of public health. At the far end of capitalism, the business must be both rapacious and patronizing. Telling you how much they care about your welfare while stripping you of what they can is the standard business model.

The thing about all of this that goes unnoticed is how predatory economics has not just been normalized, it is now celebrated. Forty years ago, soulless money grasping was seen as immoral. The movie Wall Street presented a morality tale about how extreme capitalism was soul destroying. Today, the ruthless businessman is in the morally superior position, while the person doubting the ethics of his behavior is portrayed as a naive and stupid person, possibly even dangerous.

Maybe it is just a case of monkey see, monkey do with these dealers, but all of their steps to show just how much they care are the same across the board. They have “contactless” car buying, which is a very strange thing, when you consider it. How much physical contact would one normally have with the the car salesman under normal conditions? Of course, since their goal is to screw the customer, maybe this is a strange inside joke or possibly a cry for help.

Of course, all of this is just a racket and everyone gets it, except for the people firmly in the panic camp. They see it as confirmation. In fact, that’s the point of all these ads from giant corporations telling us how much they care about us and the communities they are destroying. It is pure partisanship. On one side there are the people sure this pandemic is punishment for Trump. On the other side are people who are sure the other side is using the virus to advance their ideological goals.

This is the world of today. There are now two camps of people. One camp consumes every event and metabolizes it into fuel for their ideological war. As soon as the virus became news their chief concern was in how to turn it into another weapon in their social war to control society. As soon as the hated Trump declared his side on the virus issue, the Left immediately embraced a set of positions on the virus. Every left-wing and adjacent governor blew up his state to spite Trump.

The second camp are the people who realize that the new issue is becoming politicized and they form up an opposition to the Left. In the case of the virus, they started as curious or maybe mildly skeptical. These were the people who said it was just going to be a very bad flu most likely, but we needed more information. Now they are the people who say the face muffler is the six pointed star of totalitarianism. For them, the facts of the virus no longer matter anymore.

In this environment, there’s no truth or even the desire for truth, as all truth is determined by which side of the line you stand. The car dealers, for example, would have lepers selling cars if it moved more product. It is in their interest to go along with the safety campaign, so they go along with the safety campaign. They would have their people in hazmat suits putting the buyer through a delousing station if that’s what it takes to sell cars. They care, because they don’t care.

Everywhere else, the caring capitalists are either proof that the plague is real and a punishment for the Orange Man or it is just part of the fraud perpetrated by people obsessed with hating the Orange Man. Not only does this make everything extremely simple, it means the simpletons rule the day. If you’re inclined to automatically take one side or the other based entirely on your feelings toward the people on each side of the line, this is a glorious time to be alive.

The car dealership is now the metaphor of our age. The people running it engage in the most extreme form of ruthless transactionalism. They do so while pretending they care deeply about the people they will gladly fleece. Meanwhile, on the lot, one group of buyers is misty-eyed over how much the dealer cares about this plague sent to spite the Trump people. The other group grits its teeth behind its face mufflers, fantasizing about the revolution and that sports car in the showroom.

Absolutely. New cars are for suckers. One to two-year-old with a year or two remaining factory warranty will save roughly 30 percent. It used to be higher until Obama’s Cash-for-Clunkers reduced inventory and people caught onto the ridiculous amount of depreciation.

Good advice. I bought a used 2017 Nissan Versa Note SV on consignment back in January (I wanted something affordable and fuel efficient, with some cargo space for my keyboard and music gear). A rental car company was selling it. The local dealership has done a couple of repairs that still fall under the manufacturer’s warranty. I also paid $9086.95 cash for that car after all the various fees were tacked on–the best price I could get. I did discover that dealerships don’t really haggle, at least not until you’re on the lot. I walked away from a 2018 NVN… Read more »

I haven’t owned a vehicle, well non-aviation, in twenty years. I’m on the road twice monthly, well before the black death period, and so I drive a few thousand miles per year all over the world. I’ve never purchased a new car, only used. I live in the Great Lakes area of the US. A car here is a liability if you live within the right metro.

With used cars people are often trading the lower price in exchange for losing out on the lowest maintenance period on the car, and if they hope to own it for the same amount of time, exchanging that for the most expensive maintenance period (+100,000). Add in financing and the new car price can be a wash.

Getting much more difficult to do yearly. These cars are now computers on wheels. Some of the diagnostic equipment getting expensive. Hell, even heard on the radio of paint shops being unable to paint and certify external sensors in bumpers and stuff due to initial cost of equipment.

Had a window break on the new 2020 Ford truck. 3rd party window replacement, $200. However, they had not received the software to adjust/certify the sensors in the rear view mirror (they dim the headlights to oncoming traffic). Off to Ford after a discussion with Geico—$500.

My late uncle drove corvettes for the last few decades of his life. Midlife thing. He was crazy as well. More drunk than sober at times. Once he ran it off a mountain road and was trapped inside, upside down. Thing was, they were putting the battery in the rear and the damn thing dripped acid on him as he lay trapped. So he came home in a body cast with acid scars and a great story.

Very true, and also a hard deal to find. I’ve been on the wrong end of such a deal. I can state from experience: the only thing more stupid than buying a new sports car (if a Miata qualifies), is to sell it at two years old! While a used car can theoretically be a good deal, I say if your finances allow, the most sensible thing is buy new, drive until it’s worn out. Adjust advice as necessary for business needs and/or to inflate your own ego 😀

When I was a teenager, you had car auctions here in Denmark, where the car on sale would be driven through a barn with the assembled bidders. The auction lasted the time it took for the car to drive through the barn and if it made it all the way through under its own power, the sale was done, even if it blew up ten meters outside the barn doors. You could get a working car for $300; it might not last a year, and you definitely didn’t want the cops to take a too close look at it, but… Read more »

The Norwegians are not particularly self-loathing, in my experience, just introspect and anti-social. They have a healthy patriotic streak, a substantial nationalist presence in parliament and, during the last year, a popular resistance to seeing their beautiful countryside raped by wind farms.

There’s an inverse-correlation at work in a lot of these advertisements. When I see an ad for a cold medicine, it’s usually just some schlub tossing and turning in bed and sneezing. When I see a commercial with people kayaking and windsurfing, stretching out their hands to the heavens as a choir sings, I know it’s an for something to send genital warts into remission.

I’m as suspicious of the “Karen” meme as I am of being encouraged to make fun of Biden because he’s old (or rather because he’s old and white). The “Karen” crap seems like a way to drive another wedge between white males and white females. Like the woman in Central Park: Okay, she’s a busybody, but that energy can and should be channeled, and she wasn’t wrong to fear that guy (who also wasn’t minding his own business, and thus, despite being a black man, was pretty much a Karen).

I find the interaction between the Central Park Karen and black “bird watcher” particularly telling… On display was an epic battle between two aggrieved classes. Both attempted to use their falsely elevated statuses to bludgeon the other. And the black man won.
The Karen thought she could pull the “black man going to rape me” card but was defeated by the race card.

In a more civil and moral culture, the boundaries of where women could safely travel unaccompanied could be pushed out a bit. But civility and morality, too, have been sacrificed… Read more »

It’s morality for people who have no religion. Their lack of Christian faith has caused them to create a new religion, this new faith exceeds even Islam’s requirements for public piety. The new religion is why we can’t even buy a can of coffee without being subjected to a line that it is “fair trade”, something that matters to me as much as whether or not it is halal. The masks are part of this new religion, it symbolizes that you follow science, unlike those clingers. And of course, all this division only exists between white people. I’ve yet to… Read more »

Even though they can’t admit it to themselves, far too many of these Karens and cucks had lives that revolved around nothing more than soulless, debt-driven consumption.

Their only purpose in life was to to a nicer neighborhood, get a bigger house, fill it with more crap, and buy a fancier SUV to haul the Chinese crap back from Wally world.

Most people are going to have some sort of religion, and if the old religion is destroyed then they’ll create or pick a new one. That’s not how it works. Embracing Jesus doesn’t inoculate you against (other) irrational hysterias. Also, I’m not sure I understand this eagerness to conflate religion with all kinds of secular stupidity – what does it say about your view of Christianity if you compare it to mass insanity?

I don’t think it’s the cause, at least not in the strictest sense, but Jesus taught industriousness, not worrying because God is in control and provides, being in the world but not of it, submission to God’s will, etc. So anyone who takes those teachings seriously will tend to be conservative. At the heart of liberalism is the belief that man is a power unto himself. Believing that in a recently Christian culture is tantamount to turning away from God.

You touch on a critical wisdom. Trouble arises when Man makes himself to be a God. This is equally true whether God himself exists, or if the atheists are right. Man is and always will be Man, with all the strengths and weaknesses that implies. We are a power unto ourself, but there will always be limtis to that power and consequences for its misuse, whether provided by God, Nature or both is open to debate.

It is an explicit part of marxist ideology to acheive the replacement of Christianity with a religious fervor for international socialism. Research the reds before and during the Spanish civil war. Replacement of Christianity with marxism is as obvious to those who will simply listen to what our enemies declare to be their goals as the “long march” and alinskyism.

When I was just starting my career, I had a new job and was thinking of leasing. My buddy’s brother owned a gas station said that was the stupidest thing to do. You always have a payment. Buy a recent used car, maintain the car and you can drive it for 15+ years or until it starts rusting. (I lived up north then) Repairs are cheaper than the car and insurance payments. Glad I took that advice.

Concentrating on areas by state lines is foolish, precisely because of the urban/rural split. When we traveled through Arkansas, we saw plenty of vibrancy in the south. The further north and west we traveled, the whiter it got. En route home we traveled first east and then south, and again, a mere 50 miles east added x% more vibrancy.

Haggling may be inborn – I know I don’t have that gene. Perhaps because my mother was as cheap as they come, but I get extremely uncomfortable in that situation.

Overseas my husband proved the ultimate haggler, to the point he insisted we walk out of a shop that had some quality things we really wanted – until the owner came running after us 5 minutes later. That’s why hubby both earns the $ and pays the bills in our household.

These are cheapos from SE Asia, same exact items at every place in every souk. If she could get them under five bucks she would do more shopping there. Then we got back to our base, which had a… Read more »

In Turkey we had some guys show us how they artificially ‘aged’ some of their metalwork and sold it as ‘antique’ (helps if you’re with a Turk or an embassy employee who knows the language). I thought I was really careful when I bought things, but I still ended up paying for ‘gold’ earrings that were cheap plated metal. You’ve got to be careful in Bangkok, too, but they didn’t seem as predatory about it as the Turks.

The reason it sucks is because it involves asymmetric negotiation. Most people buy only a few houses or cars in a lifetime. Those who sell new houses or new cars have typically done so hundreds or thousands of times. And the unique, customizable nature of the home or car makes comparing apples to apples practically impossible. The only leverage you really have is to keep emotions out of the transaction and to be willing to walk away from a bad deal. Scarcity in these markets is a manufactured illusion.

The trick with houses and cars is that people get emotionally involved in the midst of the purchase. Salesmen pounce on that. Offer cash, at a discount, take it or leave it, and do not signal any hind brain involvement on your side of the transaction. For cars, you can always find an identical one somewhere else. For a house, you never know the whole deal about what you bought until after you move in, find any drafts, leaks or clanks, and learn the traits of the more eccentric or less pleasant neighbors anyway.

That and their overall volume is lower, so the smaller lots are less able to have people walk off and go buy somewhere else over $500, thus missing out on the profit from selling the car and any vig they might get from loan origination.

Disagree. I’ve shopped a few times from used dealers. They certainly knew where I lived (have to show license). Rarely would they take a reasonable offer, even a good bit above KBB, so I went elsewhere. To be fair, I was shopping in a price level and the average clientele in that area lived in a trailer home and got benefits, so perhaps they weren’t prepared for Jewry, even my amateur attempts 😀

If you get your COVID-19 vaccine shot, you may get more than you bargained for. IIRC, case in point: 1976 swine flu “epidemic” and Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). Seems folk were talked into believing the great pandemic prediction, and the solution—increased use of the new vaccine for the upcoming pandemic.

Those heeding the call got increased incidence of GBS until the vaccine program was discontinued. I also believe the vaccine companies were indemnified by the government for this blunder.
