Your post to start a debate to own or buy a car is disturbing. In the last sentence you resort to name calling, which is intentional rudeness to your credit.
Forums with nicks are meant to be platforms to deliberate your ideas freely without any pressure of opponents age, financial status, qualification etc. You float an idea, other criticise it, you provide logis and they give you thier reasoning. But if we like to impose our ideas on others without providing a logic or reasoning and resort to rudeness, then the environment is no more conducive to exchnage ideas.
If you have some respect for Japense industry and its pioneer, we appreciate it. On the other hand if somebody thinks that Japan was hegemonueous and has expansionism in mind duirng WW II then it is thier thinking.
Different people view cars as different objects. For some people it is just a machine to get from point A to B, while some see them as breathing souls and are obcessed with them.
The point is that we learn to respect everyone's opinion and if find it unpleasent and irrational then we have two choices. Leave it alone, or if we are really concerned then we must use our convincing power and educate others.However must never turn to rudeness and name calling.
