The liquid fuel problem

The US has trillions of dollars of infrastructure and systems that depend not just on fossil-fuel, but oil in particular. Everyone knows that these systems are unsustainable, but they cannot be dismantled without tremendous loss of wealth. People are so dependent on these systems of auto and sprawl, that they are forced to allow more subsidy and wars.

The oil industry controls most government, but they can't be everywhere. You can fight back by helping to advocate #freetransit. If there is a strong movement for free public transit, that will embolden public transit advocates in general.

The only thing that will break the critical mass of #autosprawlsubsidy is free urban buses.
