I Hate Cars. I HATE CARS.

Is there anything more evil and insidious than cars? For me, they epitomize so many things that I hate about Amerika and its rich, lazy, and pampered ruling class. In particular, I despise the self-indulgent assumption that permits our "overlords" to poison our air with their cars while they live in sprawling suburbs in large homes with garages. And for what? To feed the insatiable appetite of the racist Republican/Christianist war-mongering industrial machine that churns out vehicles and wrecks the lives of the working class?

Fortunately, though, the people are fighting back. Some call it "vandalism" but I call it "Reclaiming The Earth". Simply put, The Earth cannot coexist with the automobile. A just planet is a car-free planet! As an illustration of how we could all live, look at this map o
f world passenger car ownership.

Without cars, the entire planet could be like the Central African Republic, Bangladesh and Tajikistan, where there is "one car for every 2000+ people." (As opposed to Amerika, which accounts for one-quarter of the world's cars.)

And now, the Doctor's Prescription:

  • Demolition of all "big box" stores, to be replaced with government clinics and food-supply depots.
  • Union-controlled public transportation only.
  • Population transfers into central cities.
  • Shared apartments.
  • Negative population growth.

Here is how we ought to be living:

Reclaim The Earth! Let those SUV owners know how you feel! Stickers, spray paint, rocks, or whatever -- the planet is ours, and they have no right to take it away.

If you own a car, you are guilty. If you own two or more cars, you should look in the eyes of a homeless child and live with the heartless monster that you are.
