I hope this young pothole, which is near my house, will grow up to be big and strong and left alone by anarchists.

Portland, Oregon now has anarchists who are repairing potholes. This is madness. And not because anarchists are supposed break stuff and things like that. But because potholes hurt cars, and cars have made our cities ugly, are dangerous to everyone (those both inside and outside of them), and they release massive amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Potholes are their enemies, and as a consequence, are friends of everything they ruin: the city, the people, the environment.

The organization that's removing the natural enemy of cars is called Portland Anarchist Road Care. The Portland Mercury has a post about them. What are these people thinking? Are they even really anarchists? Maybe they should smash the shelters at light rail stops, which is pretty much the same as filling potholes. Like potholes, public transportation is the enemy of cars, which are always going too fast on residential roads. As I've insisted in the past, we must learn to love the holes on our roads.
