the vehicles that is spun of air

"A radical monopoly paralyzes autonomous action in favour of professional deliveries. The more completely vehicles dislocate people, the more traffic managers will be needed and the more powerless people will be to walk home. This radical monopoly would accompany high-speed traffic even if motors were powered by sunshine and vehicles were spun of air." (Ivan Illich, The Right to Useful Unemployment)

What does the emphasized clause say exactly?
  • No, it's not possible; that's his point. Even if cars were powered by sunshine (which he's assuming is impossible) and cars could be made out of thin air, the radical monopoly would accompany high-speed traffic.
    I get it now, friend, thanks a lot.
