Same excuses everyone uses for falling short of their own standards of behavior. Denial, downplaying severity, procrastination, distraction, blame-shifting...

It's like how when we cut someone off, it's not that big of a deal because we either had to, or it was an honest mistake, or we were busy thinking about more important things... but when someone else cuts you off, they are wretched evil blights on humanity.

What I'm getting at is that those that would attempt to force people into EVs aren't evil sub-humans bent on ruining everything that's good, but just the normal kind of ignorant, limited, and fallible people like the rest of us. I don't find your examples of hypocrisy to prove the "believers" are ill-intentioned, or that all "believers" can be categorized as hypocrites.
