What if I'm an ultra urbanite cosmopolitan? I don't want to eliminate the distinction between country and town, I want ultraurban ultra
technological cyberpunk version of socialism.
I like cities. I like steel, glass, concrete, and towering buildings. I think rural towns and suburbs are sprawl and are a waste of space and its better to have urban density with walkable neighborhoods and public transit, mainly subways/rail. Let the rural areas rewild, and bulldoze the suburbs, let everyone live in a modernized version of gommieblocks but as humane, green, and aesthetically designed as possible. High speed rail can connect various cities and replace most domestic air travel.
Cities have interesting life. The mass nature of population in cities gives anonymity, and therefore freedom, a concept most channers are familiar with. Small towns breed small minds, cities are where the weird kids can go and be accepted. Cities have places young people can congregate, museums, opera halls, sports venues, orchestras, more interesting work. The great lie is that cities atomize people. Wrong - Cities humanize, rural areas atomize.
Shitting on cities is burger propaganda made by Thomas Jeffreson a slaveholder rapist centuries ago, even though he had no problem living in Paris for years, simply because he thought urban life was decadent and therefore detracted from "republican virtue". I'd rather have this than some primitivist bullshit where we have to give up modern conveniences and go to the country and farm the land or some bullshit.
My ancestors had to cut down sugarcane for rich guys for like 16 hours a day, they didn't go through that BS just so I could do the literal exact same thing voluntarily because some retarded teenage polpot larper probably living in the global north where the temperature never goes above 24, decided people would be better off farming in the hot sun and air condition is a sin. (and thats before global warming makes even more of the planet ungodly hot)
I don't give a fuck if you call it neoliberal, or whatever cope you want. The idea of back to the country is reactionary and I'd rather be dead than live out in the middle of nowhere with some hinterlands savages who would probably take a shit on my lawn for not being in their religion or believing in their weird superstitions. Ultraurbanism is the future and the wPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
