JPods’ Brand

5 Points of the JPods Brand

  1. We invented and patented solar-powered transportation networks to end foreign oil addiction. This dependence on energy outside self-reliance is the Root Cause of oil-wars, oil-dollar funded terrorism, $30 trillion in Federal debt increasing in tandem with oil imports, traffic congestion, and Climate Change.
    • The last 10 Presidents identified foreign oil addiction as a direct threat to national security:
      • President Nixon, 1974, “At the end of this decade, in the year 1980, the United States will not be dependent on any other country for the energy we need. We will hold our future in our hands alone.” Foreign oil 30%.
      • President Ford, 1975, “First, we must reduce oil imports by 1 million barrels per day by the end of this year and by 2 million barrels per day by the end of 1977. Second, we must end vulnerability to economic disruption by foreign suppliers by 1985.” Foreign oil 35.8%
      • President Carter, 1979, “This intolerable dependence on foreign oil threatens our economic independence and the very security of our Nation. The energy crisis is real. It is worldwide. It is a clear and present danger to our Nation. These are facts and we simply must face them.” Foreign oil 43.1%.
      • President Reagan, 1981, “While conservation is worthy in itself, the best answer is to try to make us independent of outside sources to the greatest extent possible for our energy.”  Foreign oil  33.6%.
      • President Bush, 1992, “There is no security for the United States in further dependence on foreign oil.”  Foreign oil 40.6%.
      • President Clinton, 1995, “The nation’s growing reliance on imports of oil … threatens the nation’s security … [we] will continue efforts to … enhance domestic energy production.”   Foreign oil 44.5%.
      • President W. Bush, 2006, “Keeping America competitive requires affordable energy. Here we have a serious problem. America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world.” Foreign oil 59.9%.
      • President Obama, 2010, “For decades we have known that the days of cheap and easily accessible oil were numbered….” Foreign oil 49.2%.
      • President Trump, 2017, “”We will become, and stay, totally independent of any need to import energy from the OPEC cartel or any nations hostile to our interests.” Foreign oil 33%.
      • President Biden, 2022, “Second, this crisis is a stark reminder: To protect our economy over the long term, we need to become energy independent. I’ve had numerous conversations over the last three months with our European friends of how they have to wean themselves off of Russia — Russian oil.  It’s just not — it’s just not tenable. It should motivate us to accelerate the transition to clean energy.” Foreign oil 33%.
    • American soldiers have been buying time with blood to end foreign oil addiction since 1991.
  2. We defend the paradox of securing liberty within the Rule of Law. This paradox is documented in the Divided Sovereignty of the US Constitution.
    • Governments are essential to monopolize violence to minimize war and crime by coercing compliance with law.
    • Innovation is a compliance failure.
    • Constitutions must be enforced on those who govern to constrain the nature of governments to coerce and monopolize.
    • Two aspects of Liberty intertwine in a Darwinian crucible of creative destruction to create the “general welfare”:
      1. Tolerance of Disruptive Minorities offering choices.
        • There are few Disruptive Minorities as tiny and disruptive as inventors. An “obnoxious individual” creates a better choice that eclipses entire industries.
      2. Tolerance of people sorting choices via free markets and free speech, the Wisdom of the Many.
        • Adam Smith’s “invisible hand” is not invisible, just tiny. It is the vast accumulation of tiny acts of liberty by each of us as we choose between choices.
        • The aggregated wisdom of all of us, with each of us acting in our own self-interest, is wiser than the wisest of us at choosing between choices.
    • The United States Constitutions Divided Sovereignty between:
      1. We the People for all powers and liberties not enumerated as sacrificed in written Constitutions. Liberty to invent and innovate are retained by us. Governments are forbidden to deny liberty to commercialize of our invention of solar-powered transportation networks.
      2. Federal government is granted unlimited taxing powers for the limited sovereignty to “provide for the common defence” to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”. It is restricted to only “promote the general Welfare”. In terms of transportation, Federal authority to tax to provide welfare in terms of transportation infrastructure is enumerated to no more than “post Roads” with “No Preference” in the facilities of commerce “of one State over those of another”. There are 21 Presidential veto messages that explain and enforce this enumerated limitation.
      3. State governments are granted sovereignty as documented in their constitution so long as those constitutions are of a “republican form” and do not violate the liberties of We the People, the sovereigns. States of sovereign over “internal improvements.”
  3. Inclusive Institutions, encouraging contributions beyond those that can be coerced, is the only advantage republic have over autocracies. This same principle applies to our company. Winning in markets requires empowering our people. Slavery, Jim Crow, and the racist outcomes of Federal Highway programs are examples of the defects of violating the concept of Inclusive Institutions in favor of Extractive Institutions.
  4. Retrospection, documenting expectations with metrics applied to repeatedly measure performance, is essential to correct well intended efforts that have unintended consequences.
  5. Profits are the difference between the value customers willingly pay minus the cost to compete. The fewer resources we consume and the more we please customers in a way they desire to pay for, the more profitable we will become. Profits support expanding our invention of solar-powered transportation networks.
