A car is an improvement over a carriage because it does what a carriage is meant to do more effectively. Taking something beautiful and conducive to social interaction, thinking and stimulating the senses and making it into a trashy, over priced gimmick used by stoner idiots is not an improvement. Just because something comes to America doesn't mean it has to turn to something cheesy and fake. I know that America wasn't always that way and I think that we need to stand up to this sort of thing and let it be known that it's not anything we want to associate with.
