Marxism Alert: 15-Min. City Comes to Arizona?
If you don’t know what 15-minute cities are, you should—it’s what the Marxist globalists plan for your future. And it’s come to Arizona.
15-minute cities are where everyone lives in little apartments, no one has cars, and everything is just a short walk or bike ride away; and it’s so good for the planet, we’re told. Oxford, England, is being thus transformed and a community that seems suspiciously like a 15-minute city is being completed in Tempe, Arizona, USA.
But what you are not told is that this is how the globalist Marxists plan to impose tyranny. Well, the World Economic Forum (WEF) did admit that part, but almost nobody seems to have noticed. In an article from 2016, WEF described a world where no one has private transportation, there’s no such thing as private property, even a person’s apartment can be used for other purposes by the powers-that-be whenever necessary, everything is under 24-hour surveillance, even cooking equipment has to be borrowed from the authorities, and AI and robots are in charge of most jobs. It’s an authoritarian dystopia. Saudi Arabia‘s plan for a 15-minute city, called The Line, also included many of these same features.
From Fox10Phoenix, Aug. 9:
“Meet Culdesac Tempe – an all-walkable community.
Despite urban sprawl and the idea that we need cars to get around, managers at Culdesac Tempe insist their residents are doing fine without them.
They're given bikes and discounted rates for electric scooters, Lyft and rent-a-car services. Not to mention unlimited access to the light rail.
‘We want to create that idea of a cul-de-sac but in a neighborhood environment,’ said Erin Boyd with the Culdesac Tempe's government and external affairs.
It’s 17 acres off Apache Boulevard and McClintock Drive. A complex of 700 apartments with each resident living without a car…’I’m a big believer in sustainability. That’s what attracted me to the site,’ [Street Corner Urban Market CEO Vik Dhillon] said…His grocery store will be next to the restaurant, coffee shop, co-working space, event courtyards and retail spots.”
It checks a lot of 15-minute city boxes—the “sustainability” propaganda, the lack of private transportation, everything within walking distance, “managers” who monitor and to some degree control residents’ lives, the apartments all jammed together in a small area of land. So what about if you want to travel outside your community? That question isn’t addressed, because you aren’t supposed to want to go outside your little community.
You will own nothing, you will be fenced into a little square area of land, and you will like it, peasant. Progress!
