Wonderful, plastic trash we don't need carted to massive warehouses no doubt on trains we don't need either.

At least we don't live in Europe, where this sort of thing has become an obsession. Still, 'bin city' Christchurch isn't must better these days.

I notice there is a link to this posting from the blog of the Adam Smith Institute in the UK. See here.

Thanks for that Paul - have had a quick read and it is excellent - will have to add to my reading list. Funny though, that blog is completely out of step with the reality of the modern UK as far as I can see. Have just got back from there - they need a serious change of plan in my view. Funny that the country that came up with Adam Smith has veered so far away from his wisdom.

Maybe we could make the trains out of plastic and build rails to the landfill. Train-lovers could pay to drive the trains to the landfill, where they would simply be buried in dirt.

That would get rid of the plastic, and allow the state to indulge its love of trains, all in one hit. It might even raise some revenue.
