But we need to. There are million of things we need to buy for our daily lives. We ain't living in a stone age to use everything in nature. For examples, we can't make clothes by ourselves. We can't just grow things and make food out of them since we can't grow everything in our backyard.
To reduce traffic jam because of too many cars I think the city should encourage people to carpool. Those people can have free parking or several hours free parking if they carpool.

It's too cold for bicycle for me now, but I also don't like public transport too.. too dirty, when I had used it, then there had sometime some homeless peoples coming to warmth into buss and they was really very dirty and stinky. I walking... I live in little town, so I can walk.

Actually there is nothing to do, money is not for ashmed. If you have it then you must show it.. you buy some stupid ferrari or pointless H2 to belong to club of idiots. Actually real idiot car is landrover discovery(one of my relative have it) probably it's yet not enough expensive... but still only idiot want have it.

Well some estonian politicans once promised to make public transport for free when elect them. but that's not realistic.

Tell me these very many things that we need.

There are many things that we can avoid, which are not necessary :

tv, video games, coca cola, hamburgers...

but the main idea is to take care about what you already have, for not having to buy new.

You're right. It feels so uncomfortable when buses are too crowded. I think the Government should invest more into public transports. Great if it's free. In my country, public transports is still a controversial problem. Buses are always crowded, and the price is not cheap. I prefer a transport system in which all people have to use public transports like buses, undergrounds, trains...and private vihicles are only used in the suburbs. :)

You don't go shopping for food, clothes, accessories, etc? You are exaggerating your words with shopping again. You're making it seem like it's a crime for people to do it. For the love of God.....

The government only pays for the handicapped people, which they use the tax money from the people. In a way it's not free for them either. And it will never be free for anyone else.

They can take the tax from other fields like industry, business... to pay for public transports. Certainly, there should have a balance among all industries. Rich countries and good Governments can do this.
