In his entry A380 Fear and Loathing, Tim Bray says: ergo, this turkey will carry 800-plus suffering souls packed in like sardines. Hey, if this means more people flying around, power to them! People getting to know (at least the tourist areas of) the foreign countries and cultures means more tolerance, right? Making the Earth smaller is, IMHO, a good thing. We may lose much of the global variety, but we gain a lot of local variety (Mexican food in Prague? Are you joking? Who'd be interested?) ultimately maybe even making humanity one nation.
