People should be out in the #streets with torches for this particular $vision of Jeffrey „Blue Origin was founded by Jeff Bezos with the vision of enabling a future where millions of people are living and working in space to benefit Earth.“
It is real estate 101. Those living and working in space will benefit Jeff Bezos’ descending plutocracy. They will be the only ones who will afford Earth. We are sick for not going out of our way to topple this vision. It is one of the most deranged visions that were ever spelled

Bruce Springsteen lamented young men scattered like leaves on street corners. And today, #feminists, #housing #justice activists, and climate crisis heroes use streets as sites for progressive protests.
Streets are at once referred to as “hot,” “mean” and “complete,” as economic engines and social. They are a locus for community, collective memory, democracy and joy. It is where the unexpected delights of public life unfold.

I've had some time to digest the recently-released Leicester City Street Design Guide, thread 1/: #leicester #cycleinfra #streets…
Streets are often our first interaction with the built environment, its what you step out into when you leave your building. Streets can make or break a nice place to live, and form many functions - providing some open space, allowing transport, and carrying utilities to homes 2/
