Mixed messages on public #transit reflect split in 1%

There is no future for the car culture. It will die. Either by the hand of man or nature. A part of the 1% recognizes this and they are trying to save capitalism from the excesses of autosprawl.

They draw their support from businesses that recognize the competitive disadvantage of traffic congestion and the high costs of parking, roads, collisions, etc.

Some places are expanding transit, some are cutting. This battle is more important than bank leveraging and will continue after financial collapse. It is a battle not for capitalism, but for the biosphere.

Help nurture the split. Speak up for free public transit.
