Trump's always sayin' that Biden wants to abolish the suburbs and Biden doesn't wanna do that, but I kinda do

Suburbs are awful. They're nye unwalkable, they're not practical for public transportation, they waste a horrendous amount of space, and the zoning laws that allow them to propagate themselves drive housing prices way up in the cities. Basically, they're a cancer that's spread throughout the US and that's part of why this country is ripping at the seams.

Don’t live there. Ain’t freedom great

[@4199,BlueVeins] So no one owns it. Thanks

[@1149,MrBrownstone] Property is a strictly human concept that exists to encourage wealth creation and social order. And you know, also to control the lower class but that's somewhat secondary.
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
[@4199,BlueVeins] Thanks for agreeing
Suburbs are trash and probably completely unsustainable.

They're terrible for the environment and they're a financial drain. Stupidly expensive to maintain infrastructure for.

Yeah suburbs are atrocious. It's all the worst aspects of rural and city in one bland ass bastard baby.

[@4199,BlueVeins] Really? I'm kinda surprised anything about me suggests suburbs.
BlueVeins · 18-21, M
[@521796,MethDozer] I think it was just 'cause you said you dislike apartments, I figured you probably liked suburbs more. das all

[@4199,BlueVeins] Some suburbs are better than others but by and large they are just weird to me.

If you are a product of our public education system that system has failed miserably. The suburbs are filled with people who worked hard and are enjoying the fruit of their labor. The ghetto is more people wanting a hand out. To quote one of the greatest orators of all time " You have a young skull full of mush"

[@836034,Baremine] If the suburbanites were willing to work for what they got, they wouldn't need our economic system to effectively subsidize their way of life by externalizing pollution costs. they'd be able to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and pay their own way.

[@4199,BlueVeins] suburbanites do pay their own way.

Ghettos are far better.
BlueVeins · 18-21, M
[@1219772,Kingfish1] I very much oppose the pressures that cause ghettos to exist in the first place, but even those are still less impractical than suburbs.
I live in a suburb and grew up in one - and I have to say that as a kid I never worried being near the unwashed masses. My mother never let us go to the free swimming pool for that reason.

I’ve never lived in the suburbs yes they’re expensive yes there are more rules.

There are trailer parks that are expensive and have lots of rules.
