Some recent random ideas in no particular order: have the front end of a bicycle on my HPV so that sitting on the bike makes the front (steering) wheel touch ground and lifts the rear wheels. A skateboard under the rear wheels can also lift them, but not so high as to make the bicycle touch. So it can be controlled from front or back.

Cops, politicians, the richest 1%, all these groups are like individual nations, and within these nations there are tribes. The more a group excludes ideas from outside the group, the more they see themselves as the real people, and others as somewhat subhuman. This is why we see the police brutality, the arrogant patronizing from federal and state government, the callousness from the wealthy. Makes a lot more sense than David Icke's "reptilian" hypothesis, doesn't it?

This is what I finally distilled out of Mayer's They Thought They Were Free. The cure? Radical inclusion. Dialogue. Now to figure out how to make it happen.
