The Rich Are Gloriously Free From Pedestrians and Bicyclists
The workers control the means of
production and bikes, an inherent
contradiction of the petty
bourgeoisie, will spell doom to
capitalism and its running dogs.
We will destroy bikes and create
a classless society.
Everybody knows bike/pedestrian paths are horrible, tacky things, dreadful really. But only the disadvantaged public school has to endure one directly adjoining its facility thanks to the plutocrat apologists on the City Council, Ms Lindo says.
These comments, lambasting the Council for its classism were so far out in left field (so to speak), the Bike/Ped Committee at first had no idea what she was talking about. The Superintendent had to explain her tortured logic twice to the Committee. Even then some Committee members seemed confused.
Ms Lindo is so desperate to stop the ECCL Path, she is so distracted at the thought of it that she's biting the hand that's feeding her; her partner in the Center of Community Life, the City Council.
All the talk Monday of looming criminals loitering on the path, threatening the children were over the top to be sure. But it's the "classist" charge leveled at the City Council, with its bizarre Marxist overtones that's especially revealing about the desperation taking hold at the School District. Everything gets turned on its head it seems at the School District as they attempt to bully their way forward with the Center of Community Life...everything gets turned on it's head, even Karl Marx it would appear.
|Here's how the wealthy live: Lots of street,|
no bike/pedestrian paths
|This is what poverty in America looks like: |
Not a pretty picture
|A tony neighborhood; no bikes. Oh, to be rich!|
