Perhaps

There are many possible futures we hope are not in our future. Nuclear war, meteor colliding with Earth, infectious diseases that we cannot stop, many others.  The consoling thought is that (for all we know) the odds of a bad outcome are low. But here is a scary future that is by no means low-odds: is crony capitalism inevitable?

As the wise Bruce Yandle showed us, when  hold hands, we are in trouble. I just started reading George Will's . He gives up on today's Republican Party as being sensible on this (or other) issue(s).

Take lanes from normal traffic (in the interests of cyclists or just plain anti-auto animus) and first responders cannot get through. And people die. Nothing says policy failure more than needless death.

Look at the HBO history. Or look . Needless death from politically inspired incompetence. Thirty (perhaps more) people died.  We will kill many more with our road diets.
