I like this statement from carbusters.org

Just as in former Communist countries people were not hypocrites for opposing the regime while relying upon it to put food on the table, there is no contradiction in reluctantly using the car when and where it has genuinely become the only viable option. A regime is a system imposed from above - one does not always have the luxury of non-participation. Still, one's opposition to the regime is crucial, as acceptance precludes action, and even desire for change.

Is a good point, well made, and it applies equally well to the often-heard criticism against anti-capitalist protestors who rely on the system for unemployment benefit and healthcare.
