#3 Reducing mobility kills the suburbs, drives people into the hive city, urban sump, where in a generation their kids are taught dependence, guilt and powerlessness.

When you look across the entire panorama of American life today, you see myriad changes that all push people in one direction, towards the modern serfdom of the Matrix and the hive collective where control and monitoring are the most effective. This isn't the arc of history or some other normative evolution, this is the planned long march and in modern times the only source of such strategic thinking are proto-Marxists in the CCP. The irony is, it is our money they use to buy compliance from politicians, educational institutions and the sham media.

#5 Many years ago, when the first big housing developments began, there were billboards that said, "If you lived here, you'd already be home." Soon, someone was making bumper stickers that said, "If you lived in your car, you'd already be home."

All well and good as a joke, but not any way to live.
