Secret of AA: After 75 Years, We Don’t Know How It Works

James Howard Kunstler sounds a bit shouty at times, but he delivers funny food of thought in his TED talk “The tragedy of suburbia” (#). Kunstler discusses crimes against humanity within urban planning in the USA after WWII as it occurs in both cities and suburban landscapes.

You often hear people get quite poetic and fuzzy about what’s wrong with suburbia and cities in the USA and what works in places with actual character (“omg Paris!1!”). Kunstler gets specific and manages to put a finger on things most thinking humans have noticed but only moan aimlessly about.
