      Still, that sells the infrastructure changes that can make survival
      possible. Once livable, dense housing/commerce is in place (you'll
      need commerce, unless you want to go back to subsistence farming,
      which has not been an environmental success anywhere), you then have
      the possibility of building towards a carfree society centered
      primarily on local economies.

      You can't get the social changes first if they're impossible to
      survive because of bad design!
