Just because countries like Holland have bikes doesn't mean its a smart thing to do.
The people in those countries udoubtedly wish that they had cars to drive.

The world is entering into a period of collective insanity.

It's sort of cartoon script material. So I'm thinking it's the result of successful media brainwashing. The driver who identifies with his product (a car) lives in fear of that identity being devalued by reality.
Is this what car addicts are afraid of?
