    The cops have become habitual “line steppers” in these protests, their attacking of unarmed, peaceful protesters and journalists as well as the use of completely disproportionate force has nearly unilaterally turned the nation against them. If this video is correct, then I think we can all say that the riot suppression as of late has been an unequivocal failure on the part of the government.

    So after reading these comments am I the only one thinking that as of yet China hasn't launched a coup against Australia but America did, in the 60s. Look up "Gough Whitlam dismissal CIA" but basically Gough Whitlam wanted to nationalize the mines (since most of the profits were going to American companies instead of going to Australian people) and he also saw that America was using a military base in Australia to bomb Cambodia and monitor China which was not apart of the original deal so he told them to stop, Gough Whitlam was also opened trade relations with China. Because of all of this the CIA flooded money into the opposition party and had Gough Whitlam dismissed. Obviously I far prefer America to authoritarian China, but China spying on universities and minor interference in recent years (while still being terrible) isn't nearly as catastrophic against us as what the Americans did, as nationalising the mines could've made us one of the richest developed nations on Earth, but instead about 80% of the profits go to foreign companies.

    I use travel by train at least twice a week to dormitory and back. Here, in Slovak Republic are trains fo free to students, because most of trains are partly financed by government. All railroads are owned by state owned company and most of trains are operated by other state owned company as well. All pessenger trains have higher priority than freight trains. A can't imagine I would travel across Europe without train transportation. Our trains sucks, because most of trains are older than than our republic (Slovakia was founded on 1st January 1993, and most locomotives and many pessenger railcars were used in Czechoslovakia), service on board is almost none and our locomotives like to be on fire (local joke), but I'm glad we have big network of regional and long distance trains. Sorry for my English if it was bad.

    How many people actually want to travel from "downtown to downtown"? Trains should move from airport to airport. (Yes, this is difficult. Just assume it for the sake of argument.) That's how you effectively substitute train travel for air travel. It allows the train to easily connect with the highway system and the air transport system. But what do you do when you take a train to downtown? It only works if your destination is close enough to take a taxi. (No, travellers won't take the bus.) If you want to travel to a location in the larger urban area, how do you get there? It's easy from the airport. Who wants to travel outbound from downtown? And where would you get the rental car to do it? But sending the train to an airport doesn't support an "urban-centered" lifestyle! No, it doesn't. That's a feature. Not a bug.

    "80% chance of $6.25" is not equivalent to "100% chance of $5" in the real world because a given individual cannot take an infinite amount of gambles. Almost all scenarios where people are weighing options, they have a limited number of times they can perform a given choice. Additionally, the individual is far less concerned with the overall societal balance than their own balance in a given gamble. People, on average, will try to achieve the best odds for themselves and their family at the time over anyone else.
