Tbh I could rant about when I lived in the countryside and how I had to drive a thousand miles to get to a grocery store, but, nah.

This thread is about low density sprawl not rural living.

I don't know how everyone else out there feels about sprawl but I sure hate it. I would bet that some of you hate it as well and that some of you might not hate it and maybe even some of you don't really care. But let me tell you, I hate sprawl with a freaking passion. I am a really down-to-earth kind of guy, and it takes a lot for me to get upset about something, but positively there is nothing in the world that I hate more than sprawl.

I hate having to get in my car and drive 15 minutes just to get anywhere. I hate having to wait at a red light. I hate when other cars blow exhaust fumes up in my face when I wait at the red light. If I were walking there wouldn't be a red light. I hate how freaking ugly most American cities are. I hate the millions of square miles of impervious ashpalt surface that we have laid all over the country. I hate wide roads and how freaking hot they are in the middle of summer. I hate how we have cleared thousands of forests and natural areas just to slap down our poorly designed cities. I hate how we have tremendously disinvested in our Architecture and how it seems that no one has a problem with that at all. I hate cars. I hate billboards. I hate driving. I hate highways. I hate parking garages. I hate convience stores, drug stores, drive-in hamburger joints, Dollar-trees, Walmarts, K-Marts, Targets, Best Buys, Circuit Citys, McDonalds, Burger Kings, strip malls, power centers, McMansions, vinyl siding, fake building materials, cars, car washes, tire shops, auto shops, car lots, parking lots, overly massive one-story buildings, compartimentalized monoculture urban environments, bad architecture, poor urban design, poor growth patterns, our dependance on oil, incongruant building materials and patterns, lack of consistancy, our poor eating habits, lazyness, complacency, patriotism when our cities look like ****, 1970's architecture, buildings with no windows, cities with no sense of place, sprawl. I hate that the US is the laughing stock of urban designers the world over.

I was never beaten as a child. But I imagine that if I was that would have caused a lot of pain in my life. That kind of pain is what I feel everytime I get in my car to go somewhere and look out my windows at this disaster of a country we have built.


You sure hate a lot of things if you hate them fix them instead of complaining lol

I can empathize, I've lived in both before.

I have as well personally I do not believe the automobile represents freedom in my opinion thanks to the car its why so many people are poor. The best way to help people would be high density living in cities with high levels of mass transit.

To be honest if sounds to me like you hate America or the United States of America... you listed everything that makes up America... everything... you can sum it all up as Sprawl.. but what you just listed means that you hate America and if you don't like it move. Several industries would have to die for you to be happy and you wouldn't care... you come across as a selfish self serving asshole in this post and it should be removed because all you are doing is bitching about something that would require the entire economy of the U.S. to change... Wal-Mart provides more jobs than any other company in the world... sad but true... fast food industry does the same... You just basically listed everything you passed by on a trip you took that took you longer than you think it should have... but you did make me laugh and I stand by my statement that you are filled with hate and I'll add you need some Church. But, I'm guessing you hate organized religion as well.
