Totalitarian Taxis



















In a brief moment of totalitarian idealist dreaming, wouldn't it be quite stylish if all the cars in each city were the same colour, make & model? Everyone would have to drive jet black Alfa Romeos to be allowed into Milan, or white convertible Mercedes Benz to be mix it up in Miami. Hong Kong has shades of this on a Saturday night in Soho, with the legions of Red Toyotas forming a non-stop procession. But I guess freedom of expression dictates that the occasional interspersion of a tycoon son's Lambourghini is OK and we are witnessing that liberalism in action.
