You’re right, to force everyone except those needed in government approved farming, mining, forestry, etc. to live in large cities without surburbs in high rise apartments. No need for private transportation and all dependent on government. No private property rights and several forms of population control. This has been a goal for “progressives” for many decades.
I remember a joke that the cost of an apartment was the ultimate form of birth control in Japan / London / name the dense city. Packing people in forces them to see children as a luxury or expensive product. Literally no room for four kids in a rabbit hutch apartment.
