cities should operate their own public mapping and transit timing programs so that people can get directions without getting spied on by google

capitalism is super efficient because it means we hire 300 bullshit contractors to write the same critical infrastructure 6000 different ways in fucking garbage ass php or whatever instead of establishing an agency to write open source programs that local governments can share

@dankwraith whoa! easy there, Lenin.

without having to re-write these broken systems every 2 years, how will they fool themselves into needing huge budgets? It's the government's job to employ useless contractors, so they can keep justifying their own budgets and keep being the lynch-pins in their own jobs.
