this is how the unintelligent roll: Carbusters.

I am laughing at you, Carbusters—-a dim witted organization with pented up anger who have decided to take things out on the automobile!

It’s hilarious to me that organizations like this are born out of a very minimal and archaic understanding of human movement, progress, and ability to advance.  So you want to eliminate the automobile…..interesting, i’d LOVE to watch a family of 4 who live in Farmland, North Dakota go to the airport to see their family living in NYC.  Is this family of 4 supposed to surgically attach wheels to their elbows?  Are they going to chain 4 slow bicycles together so 40 hours later they reach the airport in a puddle of sweat and tears?  Will this family become poverty-stricken due to their vegetables rotting as trucks are not present to deliver them to the market so they can make their money?  IS THERE ANY LOGIC IN YOUR ABSURD LOGIC of a “car free” world?  If we had it your way—-we would be proceeding backwards as a civilisation. Why not ban airplanes and trains too—-as I hope you realise one airplane creates more pollution than thousands of automobiles.

Bicycles as transport for everybody? LOL….welcome to China and India in the 1920s…..an ‘ideal society’ for everybody!

You know what Carbusters….i’m proud to own 2 cars in NYC.  Just because of you, i’m gonna take a gas guzzling, petrol snorting, exhaust screaming drive up and down the streets of Brooklyn.  You’re gonna love it too.

I look forward to more and more cars on the streets with nice big wide roads and beautiful race tracks being constructed everywhere!  I hate to break it to you,  but worldwide car sales are flourishing with record sales and great enthusiasm. Motoring forever! I’ll see you on the Nurburgring on your bicycle, suckas!

  1. it pains me to say this, but i see this (carbusters) and other movements like it as a form of urban elitism. as you say, these people can give up their cars because they can. not everyone has that privilege.

    – a fellow “urban elite”

      totally agree. it’s easy for city people to make these movements and attempt to impose them on the world—-without any understanding of how other societies and places live. you take the train, because it is by far the most economical, fastest, and easiest way to get to work—which is great! i’m just glad you rip it up with gas and gears on the weekends 😉

    I comes down, basically, to upper middle class people feeling guilty about how easy their life is and inventing sacrifices for themselves to make.

    • if it’s simply a sacrifice (real or imagined) they are making for themselves and themselves alone, i have no problem with that. it’s the heavy-handed attempt to impose that worldview – which comes from a place of privilege – onto others that i patently disagree with.

    ^^This is so obnoxious I’m surprised you aren’t the proud owner of a yellow H2. The attitude would certainly fit.

    I hate to break it to you, but you’re going to lose your city to pedestrians, cyclists and public transportation. I appreciate the automobile as much as the rest of y’all, but I am not so ignorant and arrogant to think they will continue in the direction they have been, nor do I think they deserve to.

    This is not to say these Carbusters have the right idea or are doing anything productive.

      dream. on. my wife happily takes the subway every day….and we happily walk around the city whenever we want to…..but these streets are built for the automobile. your ordinary pseudo-superior luxury western modern hippy ignorance has negated you from even understanding the enthusiasm this blog has for the automobile; an object which continues to grow in use and sales…..dream. on. and stay ignorant. bicycles are archaic and fruitless as primary transportation.

    Cool story bro. There are 12 cars in our garage. a Fiat 600, a 912, an XK120, a DB Mark III… Tell me more about my failure to understand your enthusiasm for the automobile. I certainly don’t check this blog for your opinions on city planning.

    I also commute to work 20 miles a day, 5 days a week on a bicycle so I can speak to the fruitlessness of that mode of transportation.

    I love the automobile, but I can recognize how costly and problematic our dependency on it can be.

    Again, I agree the ‘Carbusters’ are ridiculous, but not any not anymore than your love for prideful gas guzzling around Brooklyn and insisting that others must love it too.

    • Syed says:

      yeah “gas guzzling”……”bro”….with my 1.8L and 2.0L engines in my 2 small cars…..it was meant to be comical to say “gas guzzling”…..not meant to be descended upon by self-important clowns. I commute 120 miles a day…..try doing that on a bicycle, Winston.
