I don't know what is going on but I am increasingly convinced this is a propaganda effort due to the widespread pattern here. The power of the media to do good and educate in earnest is being wasted to substitute ... this.

Our economy is so automobile dependant, the powers that be know that a shift will gain momentum. Because it can, it does gain momentum. The car industries are one of the few things left to support this dying system. That is why they are being defended with the importance of Spice.

There are probably interests that are terrified of a 10% cycling rate, then 20%, factories closing, mass layoffs ... insane isn't it? Even the possibility must be suppressed. So these retarded arguments and false dichotomies are constructed to manipulate minds. Unfortunately we are in a system that currently cannot mitigate special interest manipulation and this is at a very high cost to all of us and our health. Everyone loses regardless of situation or transportation because the attitude running things is evil and thus things suck on purpose.

Pieces like this may be deliberate propaganda, or they may be honest rantings of an individual not thinking clearly, but regardless it is a symptom of that which is keeping us stuck in a dying imperial system.

What solution (to end on a positive note)? The only thing we can do for sure is to be the change we want to see. The increase in riders this year is noticeable. Change is already occurring, articles like this are evidence of this.
