Government is a confused little animal. It builds toll free roads, and then it criticizes us for taking advantage of them, since doing so will cause the planet to catch on fire.

I agree with Undustrial, by removing toll free roads, the market would signal to consumers the real costs associated with the suburban lifestyle.

By embracing the market based idea of paying for what we use, the goal of denser communities would become a lot easier to sell to the consumer.

I don't hold out much hope for this idea, however, since most people would rather complain about things, than pay the price to fix them.

I guess that's why Ryan's ideas are so fully embraced by the majority of people on this blog, they perfectly reflect the idea that receiving is more virtuous than giving.
