Conservatives are for free markets, remember? The only reason there’s high density construction is real estate costs, not some kind of commie conspiracy. Commies don’t build, they’re opportunistic parasites.
Conservatives need to get more sophisticated about supporting the conditions that promote freedom. High density communal living always creates more communists. Look at any election results map. While some communists move to NYC, most of them develop their communism from living there. People living 70,000 per square mile is not the natural state of man. If businesses throw in the towel on $2,000 per square foot high rise construction costs and move to more free areas, their employees and families can learn to live like Americans. Traditional America’s biggest enemy right now is the high rise city. While conservatives don’t support this NY scaffolding law, we should pick a completely different battle.
