"The autobahn was fascistic"

So says Johan Goldberg. Well, if that's so, then the following are also fascistic: (government built and owned transportation routes)
  • Interstate Highway System. Don't foget, it was Eisenhower who championed its creation.
  • Panama Canal. Teddy Roosevelt's pride.
  • Cumberland Road (1811) "one of the first major improved highways in the United States built by the Federal Government"
  • Wilderness Road. "in 1775 [Daniel] Boone blazed the Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap and into Kentucky." "In 1792, the new Kentucky legislature provided money to upgrade the road."
Now to be clear, Daniel Boone was not a fascist. However, Kentuckians of 1792 are another story. Clearly, they were fascists, 130 years before Mussolini came to power.
