The highway 130 and Pombo

I thought for some time that building a new freeway along the route 130 was a great idea. Not much was heard about it these days, though from time to time I hit references to the project in various lefty blogs with smears against Richard Pombo, who spearheads the project in the public policy arena and happens to be a Republican. I am happy to see those, because every such posting signals that the project is alive. Here's a recent one: "Rep. Richard Pombo's Conflict?". It's in an interesting blog in general, BTW. The poster is knowledgeable, up to date on the latest developments, and is civil. Too bad I am yet to read anyone of such inclination to mention evils of public transportation. Everybody talks about densities, miles, and efficiency only. For public transportation is evil, make no mistake. It's a dehumanizing technique of classic industrial and collectivist society. I rode public transit for 33 years without rest, and enough is enough. Maybe I ought to keep tabs on Pombo and help along?

What do you feel are some of the evils of public transportation? And what are the elements of the "classic industrial and collectivist society" that you feel public transportation represents and should not be a part of society in today's Northern California?
