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
This really needs to be heard in Werner Herzog voice.Report
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

I am FEASTING on NIMBY tears right now!
I read about that. I noted that they also chucked parking minimums out the window too, which is nice to see. Another thing I saw recently was about a development organization that has as one of its basic “is this city even ready for us to do useful work” checklist items, “have they got parking minimums”. If the city still has parking minimums, they reckon there’s no point even getting involved.Report
Yup! It’s just great news all over.Report
Oregon seems posed to get rid of single-family zoning state wide.Report
