Our Infrastructure Is Falling Apart -The Railroads
 
Perhaps our infrastructure should be a bigger priority than who we are going to bomb next, or what new weapon we can build. The railroads get government subsidies and tax concessions out the ying yang. So does Amtrak which uses CSX lines to transport people. So whether or not the lines are privately owned, our tax dollars fund it to a degree one way or another. And if we are going to spend money on something, our infrastructure is a good place to start.

Trump wants to invest in Americans once again!  This country does need to rebuild itself.  In many ways...

 

A century of living anywhere causes serious wear and tear. That goes double for a town as busy and rough as this one, though.
 
Over time, New York has grown up around, under, and above itself with more buildings, trains, and skyscrapers. Along the way, we have picked up a laundry list of decaying pipes, crumbling buildings, squalid subway stations and tunnels, rotting pier pilings, and often roughshod streets.

This kind of thing is common throughout small towns in America.  Roads in disrepair, bridges falling apart, drains and canals growing over with weeds...

I've noticed a buildup of new stores and outlets around town.  More chains and franchises than anything.  Auto parts, dollar stores, cheap food marts, etc.

 

The roads around town need some repair.  Our bridges look ok and the drainage systems are pretty clear.  After the hurricane a few years ago they made sure of that.

 

The buildup of the infrastructure could be occuring in other ways.  Ways in which a society governs itself.  Certain attitudes and access to educational standards are building in such a way as to diminish the quality of any human value for the future.  The media keeps spilling its own build up of the pressure to expode by reporting only negative standard news.  Nothing positive to sell the American people on to re-build the nation.  Trump says he wants to rebuild the nation.  Re-build it into what?

LaRouche's idea of the "infrastructure corridor," is currently under discussion, to be implemented, in many nations around the world. It is reminiscent of the idea associated with Abraham Lincoln's concept of the Transcontinental Railway of the mid 19th century. Cities, as industrial, cultural, and educational centers were developed all along the route, as the American continent was developed from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The proper design of the development of any very large land-area must be based on certain geographical principles. In modern history of the past two centuries, the center of these geographical principles is transportation routes, chiefly for water-borne commerce and trunk railways, still the cheapest and most efficient modes for movement of produced goods.
 
If you want to have an industry, you have to move materials to it and from it. Therefore, you require an efficient transportation system which has a low physical cost of transportation per ton of weight. The most efficient, of course, is rail--rail or magnetic levitation--the lowest in the cost, physical cost per ton mile. Roads are very inefficient, and the only time you use roads, is when it is inefficient to build rail. And you try to use them only for very short distances, because they're very costly, per ton mile, relative to rail. Rail is much cheaper. Water is the cheapest, but that's not land. But, water is slow.

The Futurism of Walt Disney 
 
ZNxHsNl.jpg
 
Featuring interviews with various Disney Legends and Historians, Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow looks at the various technologies Walt Disney used and developed over the course of his life. From creating the first sync sound animation in 1928 to his unrealized dream of E.P.C.O.T., an experimental city that passed on with him in 1966, this film shows Walt Disney as the futurist he truly was. 
 
 
 
Better than average biography on Walt Disney. His power in the upper echelon of government is clearly seen. Especially after the military took over his studio during WWII. He was a visionary with the power to use his imagination to make his dreams and  experiments on social structuring come to life.
