See, if the monorail is not turning a profit, this means that no other business that the monorail delivers people to is receiving any benefit at all. It means that no individual’s cost of travel has gone down, or that they can now make more money with the same amount of time.
If the general public is receiving no benefit, then there is no need for the system to exist.
Your argument gave only 2 options and made a choice between those 2. If you know that there are other valid options then leaving those options out is highly suspicious. Therefore, you either didn't know about the other options or you being dishonest. I chose to give your character credit and assumed you simply didn't know of the other options.
It seems that you are correcting me, that you did know and were making a dishonest argument. If that's the case please say so.
- What is the monorail's annual cost to operate?
- How many passengers does it carry annually?
- What is the fair?
