Left Lane Democracy!

Many a waeg will complain about how Korean drivers will often drive slowly in the left hand lane on expressways and highways.  They wonder why Korean driving schools don't teach how the left lane is supposed to be for faster, throughway traffic.  Many a rant has been delivered on the subject in the finer establishments littering the back alleys of Itaewon and elsewhere.

What these waegs don't get is that left lane driving is the purest expression of democracy found on the planet.  Like other borrowed culture such as Confucianism and nationalism, when Koreans decide to do something, they do it 1000%, thus best.

Reserving the left lane for faster traffic is a form of social exclusion, since only those who drive expensive fast cars with money to burn on overpriced fuel could make full use of the left lane.  By driving in the left lane at 80 km/h, Koreans are simply demonstrating their true democratic beliefs, since everyone should be free to drive there regardless of vehicle type or excessive wealth.  Other countries that follow such foolish road etiquette as reserving the left or right hand lane for faster traffic are simply demonstrating the inherent social inequality within their nation, thus highlighting the hypocrisy of being called democracies.

Eventually, this truest form of democracy will take hold and be spread most widely, using the vehicles of scantily clad female Kpop groups such as SNSD gyrating on stages from New York to Paris, and the amazing dramas of Hallyu which showcase the many talents of Kim Tae hee and Lee Young Ae, both pure and ideal females, as means to draw attention to the purest Korean refinement of foreign culture.  As the above are the truest forms of pop music and cultural imperialism found in the entire universe, their recognition worldwide will soon lead to the acceptance of other pure Korean culture and practices, such as the best form of democracy exemplified in left lane driving.

I disagree. Korean's drive wherever and however the F&$^ they want. Most of the time it kind of works. you take 47 million Americans and stick them in a space the size of a great lake, and things will not work. No one drives the same. Here, they all drive marginally agressively and those who don't learn fast and hard. It's safer to drive like a dick here.

You mean Left lane right? Doesn't matter I guess. I've given up on the fact they won't herd their car into the right lane and let me pass. So I pass them any way I can. Just get the hell out of the damn way!
