I think this is just highly unrealistic. Areas like ports, river crossings, and trade route intersections have always been and will always be bases of population concentration and power. Any society that tried to do away with them would just be outcompeted by a society that didn't, because it's an efficient way to deal with shit.There are no large cities controlled by republicans. This fact is also fine, as I will explain.
In my fantasy land, major metropolitan areas would not exist, because they are a cancer on functioning society, in this current moment in time. They had their place in the industrial revolution, but they haven't served their intended purpose in over 50 years. Major cities are not producers anymore. Instead, they are now our biggest consumer vaccum, and that leads directly into the shitshow you just described in this post. The heelturn from producer to consumer has turned large cities into drug-addled, dirt-poor, niggertowns, where any hope of success is an infuriatingly pointless and retarded gesture. They only exist to have a captive voterbase.
Cities also don't have to be dysfunctional; that's a distinct feature of the US that most foreigners find mystifying and appalling. The pattern of cities turning into 'drug-addled, dirt-poor, niggertowns' is also a recurring historical phenomenon typical of late-stage, decadent empires, which we are. And if we ever want to right the course, it's going to involve cleaning up the cities.
No, it doesn't equal socialism either, government = government. Governments have existed for millennia, socialism has existed for centuries. There's a reason we came up with a new word, and it wasn't to describe a basic political structure which has existed since the dawn of civilization, but to describe a new idea. Socialism is a reaction against capitalism, which arose out of the collapse of the feudal system, which proposes that the government do a certain set of things. Under capitalism, the government does a different set of things, and under feudalism it did yet another set of things. The government hasn't done anything good in America for the last 60 years because America is in steep decline and its government is run by nepotism cases, shysters, and striver retards. But it was competent government that transformed Singapore from a shithole fishing village into a meticulous, clockwork city at the nexus of global finance and business. Government is basically the bones of a society, the potential violence that runs under the surface of every interaction, kept in check by something - balance of power, corruption, brutality, it can take lots of forms. A large reason why our country is such a shithole now is that this fundamental force was handed over to psychotic retards by the 'right', which blithely decided that power itself was evil.Government != Communism. Government = Socialism. I don't like Socialism either. Tell me what the government has done in the past 60 years that somehow invalidates all of its evils. Just one thing that could possibly convince me that these "people" don't need to be skinned alive and sprayed with road salt. One thing that would make them worthy of my trust. I'll just sit here and wait.
