They aren't reinventing trains and busses and libraries because they're pod people. They're subtracting the idea of default public entitlement to those services.
@Zero_Democracy I'm not sure I see the problem in this.
If they want to spend their money on the world's biggest collection of stuffed toys, who cares? If they want to do a Bill Gates, and fight infectious diseases in the third world, that's nice (assuming that the result is a positibe one). So they're building private bus fleets - I'm not clear on what the earth-shattering, soul-consuming, mind-numbing, bowel-erupting problem is.
Presumably it would still mean fewer cars on the roads?
