Re: A reminder about what socialism is, was 10 things NYC should do now that Amazon HQ2 deal is over

without the very condition you decry there would be NO subway

Absolute and total BS. The IRT and BMT were built by private companies, even though they were swimming upstream against the already-socialistic NYC machine. And what happened when the city took them over, after "competing" with them unfairly with the genuinely socialistic IND? Subway expansion came to a virtual halt, with spurts of very minor expansion (and a lot of shrinkage, especially on the elevated end) occurring now and then.

Without the conditions we rightly decry, there would be a far larger and far cleaner subway system than the dystopian falling-apart relic that is there today.
