  •  The car companies aren't going to get all of us. (4+ / 0-)

    I've been living car-free since 1999 (minus a brief, uncomfortable stint three-year in a rural area, when I had no choice and hated myself for it), and ain't no way a car company is going to sell me on a vehicle now unless something is happening in my life that leaves me no choice whatsoever, and if and when that day comes, I'm only going to want to know one thing: which model puts the least goddamn carbon into the atmosphere, be it out of the tailpipe or out of a smokestack. I give less than half a shit about image. Every time we go somewhere under any power other than our own muscles, we're damaging our home. Doing the least possible damage is our moral imperative.

    "The great lie of democracy, its essential paradox, is that democracy is the first to be sacrificed when its security is at risk. Every state is totalitarian at heart; there are no ends to the cruelty it will go to to protect itself." -- Ian McDonald
