Mikael posted this quote over at Copenhagenize.

I propose an updated version

People of the world
you have traded your birthright
for a world poisoned
by cars

Rampant spread of cars has
stolen the streets from your children

Belief that a car is the only way
kills our women, and men, and children, and pets, and environment.

People of the world
Rise up and claim your birthright-
a world not ruled by machines and fear.
Reclaim your power to be strong
without destroying all there is around you.
Reclaim your power to be self-sufficient
without endangering others.

Look to yourself to be what you want to see in the world.

What's you version?

  2. Krista, in a world where motorists are the majority it would be politically more efficacious to make your point without attacking THEM directly.

    For these purposes focus on the car, not the driver - who will automatically respond negatively to perceived verbal aggression.
