I do know that interstate highways in general were originally built for military mobilization. Don't know about the HOV lane, though. Probably to preserve fuel supply/cut back on pollution.

We will never know.

Long term conditioning is a real b#tch.

I don't believe in putting things in "laymans terms".

I do believe, however, that critical thinking has been systematically eradicated from the general population.

I think you might be mistaken for this reason.

Many years ago during the cold war I watched an exposa of the big bad commies on TV. One of the things the makers of the TV show made a big issue about was that in the cites and Moscow in particular, there were lanes set aside for the sole use of the elite.

When I visited there on a holiday in 1977 on a bus trip, sure enough, these big black limos would go flying along the lanes reserved for the elite.

While watching one go past I found myself thinking: I wonder if we will see these sorts of lanes in in the west one day despite the fact the critize the commies for doing it." While I have not seen them yet, I wonder just how far away they are?

The lanes you speak of might just be part of the normalising process before moving on the next step.

They'll have no need to even go to that step; tomato tomahto really.

The oil barons are quite content with HOV lane as it stands.
