I seriously hope not. Public transportation fits right into plank number
6 of the  communist manifesto. Is it true that  most countries that have
``good''  public transportation  are  also to  a  large exent  socialist
countries? Or at least heading towards socialism?

It would seem to me that socialists would hate the automobile because of
the freedom it provides the owner. I  suppose you could argue that a car
requires care, maintenance,  etc... but since when  does owning anything
mean it doesn't involve responsibility?
