Advertising could easily pay for public transportation


The Web has two models for income
ads and subscriptions for services rendered
There is no reason why all the economy cannot 
operate just the same way
Advertising could easily pay for public transportation 
if cars were vastly reduced 
and newly invented public conveyances 
were operated by brands Starbucks, Burger King etc
Businesses that operated new settlements 
modeled on ships or malls or stadiums 
could most certainly devise 
new and inventive ways of generating income

Density and Spatial Aspects of New Human Settlements

New human settlements beyond exclusive reliance on the automobile 
and beyond suburban captivity 
Ocean liners and malls and stadiums 
have these things in common for the most part
They have no cars within them
They can hold a large number of people
They are intensely social 
but where they do have living space 
they are quite private
They have generally around four levels 
they are generally privately owned and run 

Why would not future human settlements 
take a leaf from these realities 
and combine commerce living education 
culture and recreation including sports 

The fact is that if amenities are easily available 
one has less need for a house with ten rooms 
with masses of paraphernalia 

It takes little effort to see that the sprawl culture we have 
is fine for a Koch capitalism 
that depends on growth and is largely inimical 
both to economical living 
and the community one can gain 
by a a greater integration of population and amenities



What would force @speakerboehner to stop obstructing governance

REWRITTEN 7/6 after Boehner refused to do more than grudgingly pass a portion of the Obama jobs program, and then with unacceptable conditions


1. The President going to Capitol Hill and staying there until Boehner acts
2. John Lewis using direct action to replicate a Selma in the halls of Congress
3. All of Twitter tweeting  @speakerboehner Pass  full Obama jobs program
4. The mass media placing blame where it belongs 
5. Speaker Boehner having a Damascus Road experience
6. A market plunge attributable to the stasis of the Speaker and Congress
7. Pressure from Mitt Romney

You can guage the horrendous stasis that exists 
by concluding that not one of the seven notions above 
has the slightest possibility of coming to fruition
Our society is so deeply mired in the spell
that was cast when I overcame we
and morality and ethics took a back seat to profit
(thickening a wall of corruption that is still present) 
that the notion of the unprecedented
eludes us
We have lost our capacity to believe 
anything can be done
This is known as crucifixion
In such situations there remain people who do believe 
and who act together
and whose victories inspire others to act
Be sure that if we move forward at all
it will be because people here and there lit the torches
of tolerance democracy and helpfulness
and practiced non-idolatry
These values are the engines of revolution

Those who have seen crucifixion many times
know we are victors already
and that we can act foolishly
even face scorn
with confidence
because we do not value
our preservation 
over the triumph of these values
