Re: [carfree_cities] Re: Buckeye Institute Study: No Urban Sprawl "Crisis" in Ohio
- Yes - but it was from your great political culture that there came that
wonderful comment on democracy about being able to fool some of the people
all of the time etc. etc
I appreciate your feelings of contempt but do these people deserve being
bothered with ... they are infuriating in their self-interested way, but
they are rogues and there should be an end to it. The point I was making was
one made to me by a wise parent based on an old Yorkshire saying "igner
them". The real work is forging the arguments, doing the analysis that will
persuade those already aware that things have to be different, that there
are exciting and workable alternatives to the current mess and the treadmill
life style it has turned into a depressing version of liberty.
We don't get majorities on our side by being distracted by these wasters.
Now look at me - you've got me using bad language too! But you must know
what I mean.

With all do respect Simon, I fell that so called "article" by the
Buckeye Institute is nothing more than a slick PR release designed in
the interest of those who financially benefit from sprawl type land
development policies. If I truly believed they were interested in
discussing the planning crisis in this country, I would not have
dismissed them so readily.
