Michael Moore‘s 6.1 rant about how General Motors systematically destroyed itself and decimated the lives of thousands of its employees is well taken and pretty much indisputable. But his suggestions about what should be done now are very wise and forward-thinking. 1. President Obama “must tell the nation that we are at war and we must immediately convert our auto factories to factories that build mass transit vehicles and alternative energy devices.” 2. “Don’t put another $30 billion into the coffers of GM to build cars [but] use that money to keep the current workforce — and most of those who have been laid off — employed so that they can build the new modes of 21st century transportation.” 3. “Announce that we will have bullet trains criss-crossing this country in the next five years “and hire the unemployed to build the new high-speed lines all over the country.” And so on. Worth reading.
