#1 Why Our Cities Fail

They 'fail' for the same reason Rhodesia failed.

#2 Say it with me: "Urbanism is a total failure. Move to the country."

#3 Urbanism is a total failure. Move to the country.

Art, Science, Technology all come from cities.

#4 Not if there is instability.

They come from successful agriculture, and you'll notice most large cities began as tiny spots where water power could be harnessed to grind grain, or a good port to fish from. The rest, being places where precious resources could be easily harvested, such as salt farms or copper.

Stable population centers, universities, have the proper conditions for people to tinker. Unstable cities cause problems. Big problems. War. Authoritarianism. Genocide. Whatever it takes to keep The City functioning. The unstable City seems to produce that trio with a mid of instability is opportunity.

#5 ^So don't say "Urbanism doesn't work". Say "American cities become liberal hellholes".

#6 ^ OK. But, not being much of a farmer, I'll take the suburbs.

#7 [i]Art, Science, Technology all come from cities.[/i]

They come from not having to spend your whole life producing food -- for which a city is not a prerequisite.

#9 Back in ancient times, after you planted the crop in the spring, the time between that and fall harvest, were often filled with keen adventures (raiding, pillaging, and looting).

The Wakandians restarted the keen adventures back in the Spring of 2020 and haven't stopped...2021 just smaller groups of Mob Looters, different cities

#11 Urbanists are a variety of leftist. They will never argue honestly.

#12 City
Civitas
Civil civilized civilization civility

These USED TO BE associated with urbanism.

No one familiar with American urban life over the last 60 years with associate any of these values or institutions with America's large cities.

Detroit - Baltimore - Chicago - NE DC - West Philly - the Bronx - South Central LA: these are places where the opposite of civility & civilization hold sway.

Brutality, intolerance, savagery, animal instincts, Floydism: these are what have characterized urban life in the above and many other US cities during the last 60 years

#13 All nonsense.

Cities fail because people forget mayors, protocols, laws and courts, all exist for them, not the other way round. They fail when citizens put up their feet, with beer in hand and watch TV while the villains are outside, preaching revolution to their kids, when good-for-nothings are slinging dope and whoring about unchallenged. They don't fail because of bad policy. They fail when we don't lynch the marxist bastitches while we can, and they go on to become policymakers.
