Why can’t our cities look like this?

Eli King

Most American cities are in a state of decay. We have all this power and wealth. Yet look at Dubai, Shanghai, or Beijing.

They have massive grandeur and decadence. We can’t even fix our potholes. What’s holding us back?

Energy is spent by two groups. The citizenry and the politicians.
The citizenry: Has zero idea how to spend their energy effectively so they squander it through the day because they are free and noone will tell them how to spend it otherwise.
The politicians:spend their energy trying to appeal to the group above saying what they think the group wants to hear so they can keep their air conditioned office and nice salary.
Do you see in either group where they use the energy for the improvement of their community?

Regardless of which metric you use to measure it, half of the richest cities in the world are located in the US while only Hong Kong is in the same list.

Whether this is number of billionaires living in the city, average wealth of people living in the city or how much GDP the city generates.

Maybe if these other countries stopped wasting so much time and money on pointless aesthetics, they'd also be as rich as the US.

This. While it may look nice, most American cities have been gradually built up over the last 100 years. And European over hundreds of years, and they have that timeless look in some and just culture rich areas. Places like Dubai started with a blank slate of several square miles. Nicely thought out and planned. I’m curious to see how it ages and what the fuck they’re going to do when water starts becoming scarce.

Nicholas Taylor

OP has legit point. Americans would be furious if they knew what China is actually like. They are so fucking advanced, they just copy paste the same massive skyscrapers over and over in their cities. If we had just one of these copypasta skyscrapers in a city, Americans would be gloating at what a big deal it is. Bullet trains, robot assistants, all kinds of cool tech there we don't have. Why? Because all of our money gets siphoned by the kikes/Central Banking System.

US is run-down garbage barely trying to keep age-old infrastructure from collapsing. It is embarrassing. Fake News tries to give impression that China is some mid 2nd-world country, with a couple big cities and mostly a bunch of slant-eyed rice farmers and factories with suicide nets. Truth is they are raping us in all ways.

James Morgan

I see Chinese students and tourists walking through the city I live in and mocking it. They come here to study and they laugh at the state of our cities. That’s how shit it is. Even the cities in China your average American hasn’t even heard of are more impressive than our best cities.

Just think, all this immense wealth we could be using to build humongous badass monuments, epic levels of technology, pushing the boundaries of the human imagination.

Instead we're using it to pump up the lifestyle of all these third world people, so their birthrate runs out of control and we are on a collapse trajectory. We have this brief moment in time before the oil runs out to reach the next level of technology, and this is how we spend it. Strip malls, concrete jungles.

It's disgusting, our revolution can't come soon enough

Yep Im here in Bangkok and it blows pretty much every US city out of the water, even the great meme city of New York. Shit is like being in IRL Blade Runner, its fucking awesome, I love it here. As far as city amenities go too it has awesome public transit, great restaurants (both local and authentic international, not queer gay ass "fusion" garbage and Americanized bullshit of delicious foreign food like back in the States), great nightlife, awesome night markets, kick ass skyline, beautiful temples, hardly any homeless people, is completely safe even in late hours of the night and everything is about 2/3rds cheaper than back in the US to boot. So glad I live here, I was just in Seattle and Oakland earlier this year for work and holy hell what decrepit shitholes those places are. I would legit kill myself if I ever had to live full time again in the US, hell I feel like killing myself every time I even spend just a few months there for work.
