Culture, Ideology And Religion - The Net Age
The Netage Ezine
Freedom in the US is predominantly lived in terms of mobility. From the beginning, the early settlers escaped religious persecution as a way to salvation. The great migration to the West signified a break away from an unsettling past and the hope for a better future. Today the car is the symbolic representation of that mobility, and freedom. However, this mobility is being constrained by high oil prices and a growing number of bigger vehicles on roads that have remained the same size for decades, constricting the arterial essence of mobility.
