"The explanation of apathy toward highway mismanagement
that seems most reasonable is that people simply do not see any
alternative to government ownership. Just as no one “opposes”
or “protests” a volcano, which is believed to be beyond the control
of man, there are very few who oppose governmental roadway
control. Along with death and taxes, state highway management
seems to have become an immutable, if unstated, fact."
-Walter Block from his book, "The Privatizations of Roads and Highways"
