I have mentioned many times on my blog how I refuse to give up my single-person, fully-owned automobile, in the face of environmentalist wackos trying to get us out of our cars. My car is my Liberty. Any time I want to go somewhere, as long as my car is working well (99.99% of the time), and has gas in the tank (100% of the time), I can just hop in the car and go.
Now, what about all those good little sheeple, city-dwellers who, in the name of “saving the planet”, gave up their cars, and take the bus, or the train, or walked, to work and everywhere else they needed to go? What do they now do, when public transit is shut down in the face of a rampant viral disease epidemic? How do they now get around, when their only modes of transportation are not available? Do they call Mommy and ask for a ride? Do they impose on their friends who might have a car?
I guess there might just be disadvantages to giving up your personally-owned transportation. When you have to depend on the government to take you where you need to go, you’d better have a backup plan, because government is sometimes unreliable. Unlike your own car, which is always available for your use.
