Macro Escherian* Plan of Chicago
Busy Chicagoans scurry about their particular . . . what's another word for business . . .walk of life . . .yeah that's good . . .walk of life. Very secular PC and NPR monotone Yeah, Walk of Life.
Chicagoans, under the Old Plan, walked with great speed and purpose. “New York for a moment does not compare with Chicago in the roar and bustle and bewilderment of its street life, ” wrote the Scottish writer William Archer. The winner of the 1st Pulitzer for fiction was Chicago investment house scion turned Marxist Ernest Poole, wrote in 1940 of the wild Mack Sennett quality of Chicago pedestrians fighting time and the bridges over the Chicago River to meet appointments.
I remember reading accounts of the break-neck pace of Chicagoans in the Daniel Burnham days of the Columbian Exhibition, which produced the first moving sidewalk - now, a feature of most airports. Also, notable the Parliament of World Religions, absent Roman Catholics and Jews it seems, kick-started the one world-ism Godless secular spiritualism template for Progressives that is so evident in 2013.
Chicagoans needed to slow-down and reconsider un-born children as a root cause for misery, only equaled by Woman's Suffrage, Prohibition and Theosophical Governance of the many, by the few and for the few
The post-Burnham Chicago saw the American Middle Class. The post-1972 Democratic Convention Chicago worked for forty years to erase the American Middle Class. Chicagoans are told what to think and do by people born in Southern Illinois or Highland Park, Illinois. Real 2013 Chicagoans came from elsewhere with scads of disposable income thickened by shrewd political investments with government sinecures.
Imagine if each individual Chicagoan had the earnest, forthright, vapid and compelling resume of a Forrest Claypool (Parks, Salaried boards, County Board, CTA), moving with unchecked ease up onto another level of sweet-paying unaccountable walk of life. Now, that would be something. Big Plans!
Breeders will be and should be encouraged to take their walk of life outside of the City proper and enter only when needed to build, clean, serve and protect Chicago - the smaller, smarter safer Chicago.
Micro Escherian Plan of Chicago Small Communities -formerly known as neighborhoods.
Neighborhood is code for homophobic, close-knit ethnic breeders - non minorities; equally Un Evolved Minorities live in Communities: The Un-Evolved whose children get killed on Safe Passages, clamor for better schools for those children, go to church, work at jobs, pay taxes, fees and fines, but get upset about Ventra Cards, Divvy bike terminals taking up parking spaces and cameras. They can take their private schools with them, unless they can turned into Charters or Magnets out of the Smart Sized Esherian Chicago.
In the grand scheme of things, an individual will reside in some geographic garbage grid, unencumbered by a biologically workable spouse and the subsequent spawn . . .with his/her large dog taken out to open air and enclosed cafes on his/her walk of life.
Think big - think Escher; think like Medill.
