NSW Housing Minister Carl Scully happens upon a universally-applicable guide to social engineering: if you aren’t prepared to live a certain way, you shouldn’t force others to do so:
Housing Minister Carl Scully today wrote off as bizarre the so-called Radburn developments of the 1970s, and announced a $500 million plan to renew high need public housing estates in the west.
“I don’t think anyone should live in a home that I myself wouldn’t live in,” Mr Scully told reporters at the estate today.
Mr Scully said it would show the way forward for bulldozing most of the large-scale public housing estates in western and south-western Sydney.
He said the experiment on which many old housing estates were based was disastrous. The Radburn idea was based on the separation of cars and pedestrians, with houses turned away from the street to focus on open space and walkways.
Consider how many ‘progressive’ social experiments have been instituted over the past century by people who would not for one second consider living under such conditions.
