Krugman, in a brilliant post, quotes Will’s views on trains:
…the real reason for progressives’ passion for trains is their goal of diminishing Americans’ individualism in order to make them more amenable to collectivism.
And now Paul Krugman provides… the rest… of the story.
…as I got off Amtrak 161 from Trenton to Washington — having spent 2 1/2 hours being made more amenable to collectivism, not to mention finishing another chapter for 3rd edition — I saw George Will leaving the business class car. (I usually prefer the coach quiet car.)
That’s right, George Will rides (collectivist) Amtrak.
