Don’t Copy America’s Car Centrism!

To keep city centers viable, Europe has to keep Amazon and all Big Box stores on very tight leashes. Everyone suffers if these monstrosities prosper. Car centrism is the juice that feeds Amazon, Big Box stores, and shopping centers while sucking the life out of the community and urban life. These merchants of destruction are a pox. Hopefully, Europeans recognize this and will not fall into the trap that has hollowed American cities and turned the nation’s spaces into places only totalitarian states can love. Ignore USA’s insane zoning practices; architects wrapped up in their glory; street engineers who share much with autistic savants; and urban studies department that endorse policies that are lethal to community and urban life.
