I have no doubt that most people here would be far more willing to accept greater restrictions on driving if they had better public transportation options available. I know I would.
When you say that fascists should only be defeated through debate, what you're really saying is that the marginalized and vulnerable should have to endlessly argue for their right to exist; and at no point should they ever be fully accepted, and the debate considered won.
