I was anticipating a lot of reverberating garbage-talk but this is actually a pretty comprehensive article about this situation!  🙂

We need a passenger rail system in the United States of America.

The tech giants should be investing in a rail system in the United States. Electric cars are fine and useful. But it seems like there’s a lot of bang for your buck in a comprehensive rail system. I don’t understand why this isn’t happening already.

In fact I think something like this is necessary if we were ever to have or even pretend to have a unified country.

And if we aren’t trying to become unified then why don’t we break apart into separate, independent nations?

Pick one, for fuck’s sake so we can get on with it!!!
