@DavidAstinWalsh @nochilljohnganzif conservatives are upset about this they probably should not have completely ceded cities to their political opponents. second of all, *most* corporations are not those ones, they are culturally-minor but politically significant firms that have a good deal of influence!
@DavidAstinWalsh @nochilljohnganzlastly , and i have said this to john, i think this entire thrust of argument rests on the fact that the “intellectual right” is concentrated in a handful of major urban centers. drive a few hours to the provinces and the cultural picture of the united states looks very different.
@JakeAnbinder in a liberal NIMBY community like the one i live in — in which stakeholders are publicly committed to racial justice — challenging NIMBY policymaking on the basis of that stated commitment is probably going to be more effective than some abstract economic argument.
