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.
Rebuild America!

The Futurism of Walt Disney 
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.

Taken for a Ride - The U.S. History of the Assault on Public Transport in the Last Century
How the freeways took over public transportation and why. Anyone who lives in traffic clogged city knows the inherent frustration traversing the speed ways. Los Angeles used to have trains until they were removed in favor of the highway.
Electric transportation was the norm in the those days. Too bad electric powered public transportation hasn't developed as well as it should be. 
This documentary will show how the auto and oil industries pushed for more roads to sustain more cars. A sustainable market plan for years and years to come.
The new infrastructure plan should reflect on these issues. Community transportation should profit the general public most of all.

Considering Trump is planning to tackle the infrastructure soon it would behoove us all the learn as much as possible about how it all works. Its many subsidiaries and contractors working to influence the transportation control laws, ordinances from the counties and states, and ultimately leading to the federal governments control methods....and beyond! Which mostly benefits the money men anyways. The public is always secondary when it comes to public transportation. Modern infrastructure is what America needs. Whatever Trump plans will last for decades to come. I'm wondering if he can pull off a major building project to reach the ages...




Too optimistic?



We'll see...

I love the propaganda methods used to sell the public on building a major freeway and toll road system. Using promotional films and inside influence from the military and major industries a massive propaganda squeeze was pushed forward by the Eisenhower administration. The highway trust fund was enacted using the gas tax. Half the proceeds were used to build the interstate highway system. Even the clergy was called in to sell it. Children weren't immune to the advertisements either; all of it too make the world a safer place. I've heard that before.
