20K new units in NYC in a year.

142K new units in Tokyo in a year.

Tokyo is a city of 14M people, 37M in the metro. Virtually no free scrap of land exists in the city. Grew by 1.6M people since 2000. And still they BUILD BUILD BUILD BUILD BUILD and prices are going down.
BUT WHAT ABOUT NEIGHBORHOOD CHARACTER????

Tokyo has approximately 30 times the actual interesting neighborhood character as any of the neighborhoods that American NIMBYs try to freeze in time.

Turns out if you *let them build*, cool original artistic inspiring urbanism happens.

Good morning. Time for a thread on the GOP's platform, which can be found at GOP.com/platform.

This year they've decided not to even bother writing a new platform, instead using the 2016 version verbatim. And guess what: It's now more accurate!
"The current Administration has abandoned America’s friends and rewarded its enemies."

"We repudiate the absurd idea this is the best America can do."
"Our national debt is a burden on our economy and families. The huge increase in the national debt demanded by and incurred during the current Administration has placed a significant burden on future generations."

This is horrifying beyond words.

Trump is actively attempting to tear down American democracy. This is not a hysterical over-reaction. This is actually happening. You're not crazy if this is frightening. It is.
Trump has asked foreign governments to meddle in our elections - multiple times. He is currently attempting to rule by decree/EO. He wants to postpone elections. His aides are dreaming of ways to obstruct voting via the post office.

It. Could. Happen. Here.
Democracy is not some natural state of being we're born with. It has to be maintained, cared for. Fought for if necessary. It can be lost. America's close to slipping into a illiberal sham-democratic government, much closer than people are comfortable admitting.

As pointed out by @ATabarrok - "The people protesting to reopen the economy are also protesting against the use of a key tool to reopen the economy, masks! Welcome to crazy town."

I can think of two hypotheses why this is happening.

marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolu…
First, the 'Death of Libertarianism' hypothesis. The American Right, now dominated by a sort of naive libertarianism, is so intellectually bankrupt that they can do nothing but scream against orders of any kind. "Government tell me what to do = BAD" whether masks or lockdowns.
This is a popular POV, and likely influences things, but I don't think it's correct. Actual libertarian voters are rare. The mostly rural conservative protesters aren't libertarians on most issues: LGBT issues, govt spending, military, criminal justice, immigration, trade, etc.
