IIRC, we privitized a lot of it, or rather, allowed it to be privitized by people looking to make money off things like cars.
A lot of the problems started with suburbanization after WWII. The interstate highway system was built and large housing developments spring up at the junctures, allowing returning vets to buy homes with GI financing. Once the white middle class move from cities to the suburbs, the sprawl began and there was no desire for public transit. The suburban household with the car in the driveway was the ideal.
And also that! Thank you. :) I learned something today.
Following in the footsteps of the CBS Elementary fandom, I proposed the idea of Uhura and Spock/Uhura to also have a positive tag. Like the Elementary ”squee” tag called #elementasquee, we would put only positive posts, graphics and fanworks in this tag while reminding those on the regular tag to use it if they wish. It’s been voted on and the tag names have been decided. They are “uhuralove”, “spuhuralove” and “spyotalove.” Feel free to tag all your positive Uhura and Spock/Uhura centric posts and follow the tags. Enjoy. Thank You

We were discussing this, what, a month ago? Thought I would bump this for all the folks who ship these two and would like less Spirk.
Can i just say well done to marvel because Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has 6 main characters, 3 women and 3 men, all really complex interesting characters and none of them really fit into a stereotype, and none is really made more important than the other? yeah i love this show
