I've watched the entire Zeitgeist movie before, but this is a short clip talking about the NAU... hopefully most of you atleast have heard of that. I wont go into my opinion or what I think, I just want to hear yours.
Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."
It's not made up, but it's hard to tell how prevalent it will be. It could just be a group of people trying to push it through, and they won't succeed, or it could be a group that is more powerful than we know and they are doing little things here and there to get it going. Either way, you are now informed, and can watch for signs one way or another with a little more clarity.
Besides, according to the ancient Mayans and Nostradamus, the world ends in 2012 anyways.
