2. It's been beaten into our heads, I think, that consumption is "freedom"

And this goes double for the car.

Fighting over limited parking spaces - Freedom
Driving a compensating hummer - Freedom
Sitting in traffic - Freedom

Taking the bus? That's what poor people do! And. You. Do. Not. Want. To. Be. Or. Even. Look. Poor.

And it's not even about enjoyment, pleasure, fun, knowledge, etc.; you have your thing, someone else doesn't.

"Freedom".
