An oldie but a goodie, this documentary details (painfully) the long conspiracy by General Motors, Firestone Tire, Standard Oil, Phillips Petroleum and Mack to dismantle urban mass transit systems across the USA and replace them with inferior buses and reduced service, all for the purpose of pushing Americans into private vehicles and ushering in a long era of monolithic automobile dependence.
Nearly a century after the conspiracy was first launched, we're finally getting to the point of realizing just what was lost and are left struggling to retrofit modern street-level electric rail back into cities long configured to optimize personal vehicles at the expense of everything else.
