Benefit of a One-Party Dictatorship: No Curved Train Tracks?

438 views

<p>On the May 13 edition of MSNBC&#39;s <em>Hardball</em>, after a train derailment in the U.S., host Chris Matthews seemed to yearn for a central government so powerful it can draw &quot;a straight line&quot; and put train tracks wherever it wanted to, as if public opposition was the only reason train tracks ever included curves and turns.</p>

<blockquote>
<p>&ldquo;We have a country where people can complain. In communist countries like China, they just draw a straight line, whether it goes through your house or not, it&rsquo;s a straight line. We have this Amtrak, I&rsquo;ve been taking it for a half a century, it doesn&rsquo;t go in a straight line. In this case, it tried to make a turn and turned over, because there&rsquo;s so many turns on that route. How do you get rid of the turns?&rdquo;</p>
