On this episode of the Glazov Gang, I discuss the impact that the coronavirus will have on the way that we live. It follows up on my Front Page Magazine article about pandemic hardening.
Hardening America against a pandemic also requires rethinking the blue model. Dense urban areas can’t be defended against biological warfare. The farce of social distancing in New York City’s crowded subways is a structural problem. The denser an urban area is, the more impossible it is to maintain social distance. Density pushes out cars and sends price signals that force the maximum number of people into the same residential, and commercial areas, which are connected by crowded public transportation.
Before the coronavirus struck, progressive policy goals included upping urban density, eliminating single-family zoning, reducing lot size, annexing suburbs to cities, replacing cars with public transit, and using mass migration to boost the political power of cities at the expense of rural and suburban areas.
The coming of the coronavirus to New York City has made it all too obvious that’s a death sentence.
On this Glazov Gang moment, I discuss specifically the consequences to the city and whether it can even survive the coronavirus.
