Decline In Basic Infrastructure

In 1955 Sydney the mass transportation system was vastly superior to what they have there today.

Modern people are good at long-winded explanations and apologetics. They aren't much good at anything else.

If you read the article you'll see they actually closed down the best parts of the existing infrastructure for simple lack of maintenance and no other reason. They couldn't even organize a guy with a broom to hit it after hours once in a while. Too difficult for such edjamafacated and scienmagistically advanced people. Things that a child could orchestrate fifty years ago are too complex for their extreme super brains. Let's have another meeting.

I read that the US has many bridges classed as needing urgent repairs but nobody wants to pay for maintenance.

All the glory is in the construction.

There’s a maxim about how the first generation builds, the second maintains and the third has no idea of the effort required to build, no real idea of how to maintain, just the knowledge that they’re special little snowflakes.

It’d be funny if it weren’t so very predictable. Man is NOT a learning animal & is doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past

It's pretty much the same in Melbourne. However, it's by design. All transport will be curtailed to bicycles, walking, mass-transit for the proles. Essential vehicles will be all that remain. Hipsters are living it already - no cars, just 19th century fixed gear bicycles.
