Resource and Regional Planning, The Great Grandfather of Regional Planning

True enough, BUT the Capitalist cabals DO plan, and they plan poorly, look at the National (and State) and Municipal Highway and Road systems and their concomitant water, fuel pipeline, sewer and electrical systems, etc.

In other words, all the ugly, irrational, ecocidal, leading to genocidal and suicidal sprawl was PLANNED!!!
By Capitalists who had only economic interests of themselves and their bourgeois minions in mind, and based on totally mindless assumptions of unending fossil fuel supplies and the endless automobile age.

You all should go back and read, "The New Exploration" by Benton MacKaye, written in 1928. If the "powers that were be" had heeded Mr. Mackaye's lessons and had we implemented a socialist system, we all would be in much, much, much, much, much, much, much... better place relative to resource planning and allocation and the USA's impact on the future of the world/planet.

It is a concise book, and not PHDish at all as Mr. Foster's books appear to be...

I highly recommend it as essential. Astute folks refer to MacKaye as "the Father of Regional Planning" for good reason.

In Peace, Friendship, Cooperation, and Solidarity,
