Im not sure people realize that keeping things feon changing is the exact reason you have the 405 jamming up.
Like dude maybe if you stop eating pie every morning You wouldn’t be so fat. But instead the fat man blames illegal aliens and millenials.

Then goes on to vote for more pie and complains about his bodyweight and calls the scale “fake news”..

Why do we keep discussing this? We do not have the infrastructure to facilitate transportation for more people, so why build more housing for them?

And, depending on your definition of 'golden age', it might have been true for decades, too.

How will L.A. be "killed" by slowing down growth? The city is growing so fast that it's going to die from high blood pressure or some other ailment resulting from its obesity. You've heard of road diets? Well, what we really need is a building diet.

The only way you can kill growth is to make Los Angeles terrible. Then no one would wanna come. Turn Los Angeles into Detroit.

As long as we got great weather and good food and a place where people migrate for chasing their dreams, people will always come.

You can't bar people from coming.
No one barred you from coming.

Decades is a long time, and time changes things.
