By the way, I don't think it's wrong to live in the suburbs and commute. I do think it's wrong to live in the suburbs and commute and expect that choice to be subsidized out of the general tax fund. - Ryan

Careful there Ryan, if you don't want to subsidize people for the way they live, they may feel the same way about you. After all "overall social value" can be a subjective thing. Do you not realise it is your perception of "overall social value" and others may completely disagree?

Person A: "Why should I subsidize roads?" Person B: "Why should I subsidize bike lanes?" And back and forth ad nauseum...

This is the type of thinking that needs to be eliminated from both sides. It is us and them type rhetoric, creates animosity and solves nothing.
