This is your main tactic for discouraging LCF, i.e. convince people that 'car-free' is a status and that they can only achieve it if they remain completely pure. It's like a guy who tries to talk a...

Your response to unsustainability and climate is that not everyone sees it the same way. You're implying that there's no truth beyond what a majority chooses to believe. That is relativism.
