I suppose "here" means Paris or France. I bet it's possible and not too 
complicated to use public transports without a pok├ęcom 
(pocket-computer). You buy a ticket and you hop on. Or maybe you can 
also buy directly onboard. Like we've been doing for more than one century.

Ditto. Are ticket booths/websites banned in France?

I don't believe you: one single counter-example (one single person being 
able to find a job or a friend) would invalidate your point.

I have been "resisting"* for a while. I don't know how much more time, 
energy, money I would have if I had given in, but I live a pleasing 
comfortable life.
Anyway, I'm not going to waste more of my time and other people's 
bandwith arguing while you cannot defend your point with a logical argument.

*I feel ashamed using such a meaningful word as "resist" to mean 
something as ordinary as "not using proprietary platforms".
