The Left's War Against Exurbians Faces Tough Odds

Our development strategy for suburbia in the coming years will be the most fundamental factor in future sustainability. The 2020 census revealed what has long been evident: Last century’s war between the cities and the suburbs is over. The suburbs won. The communities where most new development is taking place are not just suburbs, they’re exurbs, suburbs of the suburbs.


Yet, the Libtards refuse to accept this reality..as they don't accept most other forms of reality.

As my wife gets more conservative by the day, she’s now said she is ok with Texas hill country of all places. The small town feel but nearby big city ammenities seem to grasp at her. Some of those small towns outside of San Antonio are among the most conservative places in the nation. It’s fine by me.

Libtards have done such a great job with the cities, how could we question their superior wisdom?

All it would take to destroy the exurbs is make personal car ownership unaffordable. Here is how:

Outlaw ICE cars by 2035. Cars will often sit parked since not enough juice in the grid to power them
Mandate full self-driving. This will put the cost of a personal car well over $100,000.
High personal property tax on anyone who does still own a car.

We are likely ending the days of freely doing country drives or spontaneous trips to the market. The future will be shared rides in electric 15 passenger vehicles that do flexible routing runs approved in advance.

I really don’t think so…at least not in the red states. Rather I think families will continue to move to less expensive areas with one working parent and home schooling increasing. Pre 2010 cars can be worked on with only some training. Necessity will force people to work on their own cars and I can see even a cottage industry of older parts being fabricated.

No need. Super expensive gasoline will do the job.

Yes, just like the Model A clubs have 20,000 of those old Fords still on the roads. But there will not be any gas to put in the tanks, so ICE cars will be limited to collectors and not in general use. Doubtful that people will make their own alcohol to use as fuel. Greenies should like alcohol though, since making alcohol takes as much CO2 out of the air as burning that alcohol puts back in.

This is how government defines "incentivizing". It's actually just punishment of what they don't want.

We need people in charge who understand what real incentives are. Take my situation for example. My driving is divided probably 80/20 between have-to/like-to. Going grocery shopping, down to some government building to sign papers, or to work are the have-tos. Driving to a friend's place or out to the country is a like-to.

Find a way to get me what I need without having to drive, and you eliminate 80% of my driving. Environment is better off, I'm better off. I haven't lost any freedoms, saved money, and I'm happy. This is a win for everyone. Well, everyone except for sick authoritarians who get off on abusing other people, I suppose.

Why not? It's stupid easy. Whole fucking USSR started doing exactly that when Gorbachev clamped down on official alcohol sales.

It's easy to make alcohol. What's hard, is turning that into everclear.

It's not ANYWHERE near cost effective to do either. First you make the alcohol then you need to distill it multiple times. Distilling is dangerous unless you know what you are doing.

I suspect revolution is in our near future. Too many people are going to be driven into poverty until they get to the "Fuck it!" stage.

In the USSR life actually got BETTER for the AVERAGE Russian. That's how it lasted so long. Here, they are pulling us down.

It’s super easy. Distillation is super easy. Distill twice is all it takes to get 180+. But it’s certainly not cost effective for ICE.

Have you ever done it?

In any case, I know it's illegal to do in most, if not all, states.

Actually, distilling hooch is quite legal, just like making your own beer and wine. But we are talking about fuel alcohol.

First of all, just like with hooch, you need to have something to distill. That means having a vat of mash fermenting for days. Then you heat it at exactly 80 degrees Celsius and catch the vapor in condenser tubing. The goal is to get a mixture of 80% alcohol and 20% water. Alcohol does not have the energy of gasoline, but that can be made up by increasing the car engine compression ratio. Alcohol fuel can work without knocking even at 15:1. To make the mash, you need lots of corn/grain, or whey. So, after all that trouble, you got 5 gallons of fuel grade alcohol. How far are you going to go?

But poor people aren't moving to the far out suburbs and driving in to an inner city job. Middle/Upper class people can afford high gas prices. It's also temporary when the gas prices get high. Biden will not be a two term POTUS. I'd bet my life savings on that. Gas prices will come back down for those that care, I don't. Armada and Sequoia are our daily drivers and we live in the country. 25 minutes to any major retailer.

Reality is most white collar jobs are now remote. My buddy lives in Montana and works for an IL company. I'd get as rural as you can with decent internet and some big box stores within 30-40 minutes one way. Get some acreage. Grow your own produce. Cost of living will be cheaper by a long shot, so gas isn't a consideration really. Could be $10/gal and we wouldn't even think about it where I'm at. 3 kids. 3-4 sports per kid annually. 2-4 other activities non-sports related. We spend about $500/mo on gas. Oh well. The same sized house in a legit suburb would cost me well over $400 more per month, plus we'd still spend $100-200 on gas.

I've hyper analyzed moving to different states and even in state. The math never works out. We got lucky on our purchase and would be stupid to move. If my wife gets ownership in her company, that's a different story. That would be a $10M+ windfall, so keeping up with the Jones' would be fine by me if we got to that point.
