@t54r4n1 its the same thing to me as home composting vs industrial composting- the latter makes huge difference but the former is barely a dent
@t54r4n1 if we want to talk about reorganizing cities and work to not need cards then that’s fine, connecting people in communities is a noble goal. Huge effort that would span centuries though.
@t54r4n1 there are many folks who live very far from work because of affordability and it seems a bit privileged to say they can no longer be employed because cars are banned
@mattdkerr that's why this I'm talking about society, not individuals.
@mattdkerr if we organized our cities to not need cars, do you think we'd still be using trucks, planes, etc, to the same extent?
@t54r4n1 commercial ones, yes. There’s no alternative to move large quantities of goods from their sources (farms, mills, mines, etc). For households, possibly not. Affordability and property speculation is still a huge issue that pushes people from gentrified areas out to outskirts
@mattdkerr of course. like I said in the next toot, it's about changing a big scaffolding, and housing is an incredibly huge chunk of interconnected parts in that scaffold.
@t54r4n1 I’m afraid that without changing more than that- IE disparity of wealth, you won’t make much headway
@mattdkerr sure, better to do nothing, and moan about it!
snot aside: yes disparity of wealth is part of the problem, there are so many dang parts of the scaffold! and: yes they can all be worked on! just: be aware of the other parts of it, and work toward a good goal. that's all I ask.
