Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire.

    The reason we are living in a world of anxiety is because life is naturally tough and we have bunch of powerful people determined to increase the toughness artificially. It causes pain to everybody else.Report

      Two thoughts:

      Saying that “we live in a world of anxiety” is like saying that we live in a world of obesity. Yes, some people are obese and maybe the ratio is going up, but lots of people are in fine or very good shape, either because they were blessed with high metabolism or because they do the work needed to stay healthy.

      And if anxiety is increasing, maybe it’s because people are continually constructing stories about how most of their problems are the fault of some other group of people, instead of doing the work what needs to be done to change things.Report

    Minneapolis City Council overwhelmingly passed the Minneapolis 2040 plan that defenestrates exclusionary zoning. In addition to authorizing enormously higher density in many regions of the city and along transit corridors the 2040 plan also included a blanket authorization of triplexes city wide.
    I am FEASTING on NIMBY tears right now!
