  • Our goal is to peacefully encourage more people to cycle and convince car owners to use their car for less trips when viable to do so. A lot of people own cars, would calling them Nazis really help our cause?

    My vision is we make cyclists and public transit users look like responsible happy citizens and attract jealousy of those stuck in traffic.

    The ACT has done a fantastic job in this field. If you’re a commuter you’ll rarely find yourself on a road, and if you do it will most likely have a permanent bike lane (no parked cars in sight)

    Sure, if you’re more of an adventurous cyclist like me and do more advanced rural cycling, you might end up on some roads (eg. when riding to Queanbeyan) but even that route has a bike lane.

    Shame that Adelaide, the “cycling capital” because of the Tour Down Under, has terrible bike infrastructure and timed bike lanes so people are allowed to park in them off-peak.

    I know people who make 50k per month and don’t have jets. I make 30k p/m but I’ll get there one day. It’s crazy how when I was broke making $20/hour in a cafe that I thought everyone or most people are broke but now I’m making modest money it’s crazy how many other entrepreneurs are in my circle now. Just wow.











  • NAH. White men only harassed black men when they were first living amongst each other. Still happens today with old people that grew up in white circles, but they’re dying out. The real reason we had racism is because before the 1800s, black people lived in Africa and white people lived in Europe. When globalism and more travel happened, some met, but it was a lot rarer to see travellers back then. So when the US was founded, people from all around the world flocked and first lived together which lead to a lot of culture shock and some disgusting negative stereotypes. The simple act of white men and black men living in the same country was enough to slowly eliminate racism. And it’s pretty much completely gone in today’s society.
