Free'd Planet - modern cities must crumble - no longer too big to fail
the modern city came about to facilitate the First Industrial Revolution...
...a period from the 18th to the 19th century where major changes in agriculture, manufacturing, mining, and transport had a profound effect on the socioeconomic and cultural conditions starting in the United Kingdom, then subsequently spreading throughout Europe, North America, and eventually the world. The onset of the Industrial Revolution marked a major turning point in human history; almost every aspect of daily life was eventually influenced in some way. [source WIKIPEDIA]

There was a Second Industrial Revolution...
also known as the Technological Revolution, (that) was a phase of the Industrial Revolution in the period 1820-1914 that saw rapid industrial development in Western Europe (Britain, Germany, France, the Low Countries, Denmark), the United States (Northeast and Great Lakes) and, after 1870, in Japan. [source WIKIPEDIA]

But wikipedia seriously needs to fill in its Third Industrial Revolution stub that deals with the technological liberation of Free Planet. And it's not even a new idea: it's happened already. It's called the Free Internet. Okay, modern corporations are finding it hard to generate vast revenue from their online propaganda services but that's NEVER been the point of this free global idea sharing utility designed to survive a nuclear war.
Unfortunately, no one told the billions of people still living/working in modern cities that they don't even need to live or work in these Modern Cities that, for centuries, have been treated as 'too big to fail' industrial centres with constant repair bills and managerial overheads. Most of the people working in the industries that service this sharing of intellectual property (a travesty to patent, when sharing is more beneficial to Free Planet) really should be 'off shore' or at least 'outside the sprawling urban megalopolises' that our once-tight industrial cities have inflated into. All these suffering people, all of whom have access to the internet, should be working on their own creations from a beautiful place they love.
There are many ways to counteract optical-non-connectivity for broadband - the military are already using a satellite-based internet - why can't we 'confiscate that for the communal good of mankind' and use it to live (and work) where we want?
And, you realize I'm not a big fan of wasting human blood, sweat and tears on the Corporate War Machine. Ban all corporations, I say, certainly disallow Corporate Entities to run riot as they have been on this planet in the last fifty years. Deny Corporations their FAKE PERSON rights. Do you really want to vote a Corporation into political power? It's just round the corner if we're not careful custodians of our Free Planet.
And, you realize I'm not a big fan of 'working for the man' i.e. working for a corporation using your skill for some worthless fucking product you'd rather crush with your shoe than pay good money for.
And, you realize I'm not a big fan of 'money' i.e. debt-based funding of arbitrary value as set/abused by a so-called free-market in the name of PROFIT and CORPORATE ESPIONAGE.
And, for those who've recognised the source for the blog image, this is not about LIFE AFTER HUMANS, this is about technologically-enhanced life after modern cities are allowed to crumble and real, planet-wide freedom is returned to mankind.
Hell, I'll lay it right on the line.
We can minimise criminality in one fell swoop by having a concensus on 'which parts of our historical heritage we don't want to demolish' and afterwards returning family groups to a more tribal way of living where everyone has a role and everyone has fundamental value to the Diversitiy. No one can be carried through life, certainly not by a feudal justice system. We need to re-learn to love and respect the place where we live; we need that connectedness to our planetary source re-connected.
Once ethical energy, clothing, food, water and sanitation needs are catered for by the Free Planet manifesto, real existence can finally be explored on this slave planet; as it is today.
FREE THE SLAVES and CRUSH THE CITIES e.g. evacuate the cities and just let nature do what it does best; replenish, re-wild.
