Exactly.

People actually are pretty stupid.

The other related concept that urbanites don’t account for is HOW MUCH COMMONS the people in the suburbs, and rural areas are maintaining and defending with how few resources.

Versus how LITTLE IF ANY commons an urbanite is, like a child living under his or her parents, responsible for maintaining and defending.

Versus how high opportunity costs are in low population density versus how low opportunity costs are in high population density.

If we are going to progressively tax anyone, we ought to tax people by population density AND income so that we equally pay for the commons we protect.

Urbanites think like, vote like, and act like children. Because for all intents and purposes they have the same level of responsibility for the commons as do children living under their parents.
