Every provincial and state DOT in North America has this 1950s sprawl / freeway ideology so deeply embedded. It’s crazy. They don’t accept any new statistics or science.

Even in California and BC (both progressive governments currently) nobody has talked about the regressive DOTs.

We don’t notice, because regressive urban planning is considered normal in North America. We’re basically brainwashed by thinking its normal from a young age.

I still don’t understand why not USA / Canada, where cars are very common

We need to get off fossil fuels ASAP, we also should probably wean away from car centricity, it’s making us dependent on these oil cartels. They have an oligopoly and they can just yank the prices up if they want and screw over everybody else.

I heard of this thing called microtransit, that might work?

We regulate cars pretty heavily, we regulate guns decently.

When it comes to dogs, across the entire world, literally crickets chirping. No government does anything.

That’s good but there needs to be more, way more. We need to start mass rezoning.

Fair enough, but I’d make a few objections,

I don’t think an imbalance necessarily means that we should automatically assume discrimination, for example there is a small correlation between sex and interest (men to objects, women to living things) which may account for some discrepancy in certain fields.

Hiring committees would depend but very often we see HR is majority female, and some studies show that female named job applications in certain cases may be more favoured even when the exact same application is given with a male name.

In terms of school, I can attest that boys need to stop fucking around during class time and actually pay attention, but I’ve seen another study show that for the exact same work, public school teachers sometimes mark higher for a girls work.

The last point I would make is that there are quite a few female only grants and bursaries and aid programs, but there’s very few that outright exist for males.

That’s my two cents, but I understand your perspective as well.

I think Warren Farrell especially, and a bit of Leonard Sax as well have gone into this in more detail.

Unfortunately the mainstream feminist objection is that “men should just make their own support organizations” but the problem is sometimes the government won’t give them a nickel, which I find absurd.

This guy in Calgary Canada made a men’s domestic violence shelter, (shockingly women are first statistically to initiate domestic violence, which I didn’t know). This was around 2011 or so? But the local feminists at the time online were saying that he should not feel entitled to government funding and only women’s shelters should get government funding. I think he killed himself afterwards.

So it seems like when men do band together to make a support group, it doesn’t get the same amount of government support as a women’s group will.

More renewable energy , less fossil fuels

More density, less sprawl

More transit, less cars

This is a little stupid and almost a safety hazard because of the confusion it causes.

There are tried and tested ways of traffic calming, this one isn’t that smart.

Picture #7 is peak. Trolleys and wagons, but no cars.

Peak.
