      The 1970s USA would be considered a developing country by today's standards. Which is really a compliment to places like Romania, Brazil, Cuba, or India. Those places are catching up quickly and have plenty of fully 1st world cities.

        In America, it was literally designed that way. There were places that were all Black and being too successful, so White mobs came in, beat people and destroyed things so that it'd fail. Other areas where blacks were bottled into were specifically targeted to push as much drugs as possible into. There were also plenty of smart Blacks that tried to make successful communities and movements. And plenty of upset Whites that did their best to stop it. Like assassinating Martin Luther King Jr. Try turning off your racism some time and look into history critically. You'll find it's a lot more complicated than "durrr dey skin color mean dey never achieve anything"

      Tokyo is a city of millions and it's mostly very clean. Even the worst parts are okay looking and just has some trash. It's culture, it's infrsatructure. I LOVE cities with actual people after living my life in a city of 125,000 with everything spaced out. I like that I can just bike everywhere and there's so much to do.

          Japan's suicide rate is lower than the US, and Sweden, Finland, and India at a glance. Their workplace culture is less toxic than the US as well. Stop believing myths by people jealous because they themselves live in places plagued by bantu

            Japan’s suicide rate is lower than the US. And your point is? The US has lower homicide rate than Mexico so I guess that means you feel safe walking down any street here late at night, homosexual.

            Lmao. I like how you just volunteered this information.

            Stop being such a triggered ass pussy. Honestly, Japan sounds pretty based. My only point is that just because Tokyo is clean and orderly, it’s dosent mean everyone is happy living in cities. Jesus Christ, calm down.

        Japan still has its “no go” areas too; they are just very hidden because they will not acknowledge it and just ignore the problems of society hence those abysmal suicide rates. Shinjuku City was a gritty mess in the 70s where those nails that refused to be hammered down lived. Then it got cleaned up in the economic boom.
        But I see your point, most of Kanto is a far more livable city than equivalent population densities in the rest of the world. There are some extremely comfy neighborhoods deep in the city that still let you breathe and forget there are literally millions of people surrounding you. As dense as it is, the sprawl is under control and excellent public transportation makes mobility easy. As opposed to Dallas Fort Worth where you are required to participate in Mad Max tier driving if you want to go literally anywhere.

Theres nothing inherently horrible about non-suburban life. If anything, its the traditional way people in Europe lived for thousands of years - if you didnt live in a farm homestead or aristocratic manor, you lived in a dense urban area.

    What rotted the inner cities was White Flight, and being allowed to skip out on the city tax base, even though they made their money off the city.
    So you ended up with super nice suburbs/gated communities with a high tax base, and inner city residential with a low tax base to support really expensive infrastructure.
    Canada didn't allow their money people to divorce off the city taxes.

              cities fell apart because the tax base fled
              the tax base fled because the crime rate rose
              the crime rate rose because politically, it became untenable to deal with blacks the way they should be dealt with (see discussions in this thread re:rwanda)
              so really, it was the civil rights movement and the end of segregation and jim crow that killed cities.

                but drug laws have NEVER worked. literally not a single time, not ever, not anywhere, for the entirety of the past 60 odd years that the war of drugs has been going on

                name 1 city in the western world, any city, and 1 single fricking day, a literal 24 hour period, that's all i ask, where drugs were not available. where you couldn't go to whatever the appropriate neighborhood is, walk around for half an hour, and buy drugs.
                im certain if we had a tardis, we could try this infinite times, and every time, whatever city we landed on, whichever date, ANYWHERE, for the last 60 years, we'd be able to get coke and dope. other stuff too, if it was after it had been introduced.

                the only way i can see to realistically *enforce* the ban on drugs is to sanction no cause searches by cops, followed by summary execution right there and then if any drugs are found. no trials, no "is it for personal use", no minimum amounts, no minimum ages, nothing. you have drugs? bullet to the head, right then and there.
                that would likely work, primarily by killing off all the junkies faster than they can replenish, thus destroying the market.
                anything else, forget about it.

                imo the only way to make a serious dent in the drug problem is to improve the financial outlook for the bottom part of society.
                people don't do drugs because they are available, or because they are cheap, or because they're not too bad for you (lol)
                people do drugs because they have no hope.

                You're a moron. We're not talking about eliminating all drugs completely and entirely even from people that are searching them out, we're talking anout fighting epidemics that destroy communities. And yes actually enforcing drug laws and forcing people to go to rehab solves this.

                some people getting high in singapore means singapore has a drug problem
                which means it hasn't solved that problem

                the fact that it has less druggies than chicago is primarily because
                a) singapore is a lot richer than chicago (per capita, in PPP terms), so fewer people have no life/prospects/reasons to stay clean
                b) far less Black folk, which means far less people with minimal, bearing on none, impulse control

                let me ask you this, hypothetically:
                if singapore legalized drugs, fully, like you could get them in any pharmacy simply by showing an id to prove you're an adult, do you think the number of heroin junkies would rise? or fall? or stay the same?
                how about in chicago? more junkies? the same?

                Singapore is a lot wealtheir per capita because Lee Kuan Yew crushed race riots and introduced draconian crime laws that made one of the most ethnically diverse cities on the planet (at the time) into a place where businesses could actually come in an operate. Originally this was all "sweatshops" but over decades his people took those salaries home and used them to pay for educationfor their kids, and Lee Kuan also attracted more developed businesses for the city, so the sweatshop workers' kids became middle class and so on until it's the richest per capita city in the world today. In Singapore you would get in trouble with the law for chewing gum in public. Economic development comes from safety which comes from policing. And the drug trade is crushed before it can even try to get a foothold there.

                Lee Kuan Yew had a similar issue with the ethnic Malaysians, who were statistically less intelligent, poorer, and performed overall worse than the Chinese and Indians in Singapore. He was against anything resembling affirmative action and instead cracked down hard on crime in their neighborhoods so they could work and go to school and peace, and so businesses could operate there. He also promoted intra-community cohesion for them and provided them access to all opportunities, without tilting things unfairly in their favor. He references the Bell Curve in his book when talking about this. All the solutions to this problem have already been developed, you're just too much of an ignorant moron to know about it

                Singapore is a lot richer than chicago because they cane people for minor offences and because they aggressively court international companies because they're an island city-state with no natural resources. They're currenly giving crazy tax breaks and benefits to video game companies to just come there and make games and teach their people how to make games. They're trying to ape Japan's robust game industry and they'll probably succeed. Singapore's one of the most interesting places on Earth, it's made up of chinks, pajeets, and seamonkeys all formerly under britbong colonial rule but they've completely trimmed all fat from their society and only have the best features from each of those 4 cultures combined, resulting in the most tenacious and pro-business country on Earth

                When Singapore was released from British colonial rule they were a former naval base/trade post with multiple imigrant races that all wanted to kill each other. And they were incredibly poor. They literally only overcome this by extremely strict law enforcement and extreme anti-corruption laws in elected government offices, banks, financial regulators, police, military. Singapore is the perfect example of the kind of place that proves libtardism entirely wrong while also making diversity work. Their former dictator caused controversy for race realism shitposting in the 80s, and for blatantly telling his male citizens that they needed to breed the intelligent successful career women who were going unmarried in order to produce legions of intelligent children and raise the average iq of the country

                I'll go all the way back Satan, importing African slaves, then releasing them after a bloody conflict with no resources whatsoever, discriminating against them in every possible way til they became an permanent disadvantaged caste, then shunning them whenever they migrated out of the South, rotted the inner cities.

                Third anon, it doesn't take much to lift people out of political helplessness. Black americans would've been better off with an MLK type at the helm, some kind of representative, than they were on shooting terms with the white man

                All it would take is policing black communities so crime drops and businesses can actually afford to pay the insurance to operate there

            Why do you think there's a difference between whether the company pays the taxes to employ you or you pay the taxes to be employed? These are equivalent economically.

              no, they are not. one is fair and balanced, the other is not.
              being forced to pay income taxes in a location where you do not reside is completely unfair, both to you and to the place where you actually reside.

                But you said it's fine for the company to pay the taxes. A company paying taxes and an employee paying taxes are equivalent. It doesn't matter who does which. Either the company pays the tax man directly, or their cost to employee you is less and you demand more (because now you have to pay the tax man) so they cut you a check equal to what they were paying before. This is basic macroeconomic theory and is not controversial at all in the field of economics. You're right that there may be a difference on which locality gets the taxes As The Law Stands, but if you think it's moral for Locality A to charge a company taxes to employ you but not for Locality A to charge you taxes to be employed by the company, you're deluded and your world view is contradictory. Again, these are macroeconomically equivalent positions.

                no, they are not

                the company pays taxes because it has offices in the city. its employees coming in to work inflict wear and tear and contribute to the traffic, in the city. the sewage and waste the office generates are handled by city services. so, the company must compensate the city for these services and for the load it causes.

                the employee is not responsible for any of those things. he hasn't chosen to live in the city (and likely would prefer if he didn't have to commute to it neither). the employee lives in a suburb, uses those roads, those sewage and garbage services. so he must pay taxes there.

                >Again, these are macroeconomically equivalent positions.
                they are not. the main difference is that your approach allows the city to paper over a problem: white flight
                you should never paper over problems. problems need to be solved, and they won't be if the authority responsible has no motive to solve them.
                cities MUST suffer the loss of their tax base, otherwise they will never address the causes of it.

      People make fun of Escape from New York, saying can you imagine just walling off the biggest, most expensive city in America and turning it into a prison. But at the time it was made in 1981, that probably would have sounded like a pretty good idea.
