Basically this. >Some 10,000 unionized workers at the agriculture equipment maker Deere & Company went on strike early Thursday after overwhelmingly rejecting a contract proposal worked out with the company by negotiators for the United Automobile Workers union.
Q: Why does the UAW represent tractor assembly workers?
A. Because the modern car is merely a kind of evolved piece of farm equipment. You can't say that about a bicycle.
The average suburban homeowner lives on a fake copy of a farm (fences, "yards", domestic animals) and drives a tractor (car). It is 100% a derivative lifestyle rip-off of something far more meaningful.
The road and highway system? Under the auspices of the Department of Agriculture (one of the original branches of government) and later, put under the control of "Commerce" department as the government expanded, and NTHSA was created in the 1960s.
The roads were merely a means of moving agricultural produce to markets and ports.
"Commerce" became "commute". "Goods" became "Fatass boomer families" and the use of these turned into "car economy" which will go down in history as the biggest waste of resources ever.
