Most media outlets decry any malevolence or conspiracy concerning the subject; “the hottest conspiracy theory of 2023 comes from an unlikely corner: town planning. This relates to the idea of “the 15-minute city” and has even gone so far as to be mentioned in UK parliament by an MP who called the idea “an international socialist concept” that will “cost us our personal freedom” and the “15-minute city itself is a simple idea. If you live in one,
it means that everything you need to go about your daily life—school, doctors, shops, and so on—is located no more than a 15-minute walk from your house.” Sounds all well and good, but that is not the truth but is what the WEF and other secret societies push as their propaganda to get you to happily subsist in one. Are there presently any 15 minute cities around? Well – sort of is an accurate answer, but they are really trying hard to become so. Many cities claim they are converting into them, and so it may be best to show an example so let’s look at one to better understand how it actually works.I-News in the UK said “The term was coined by Paris-based urbanist Carlos Moreno in 2016 and has since become hugely popular amongst academics and urban planners as a way to reduce dependency on vehicles and lower carbon emissions.” As side note, Paris is transitioning into one as fast as they can figure out how to do so and the “mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, was among the first to seize the idea when she promised to implement the policy within the French capital as part of her mayoral election campaign in 2020.”
Continuing with that I-News report on Oxford pushing to become fully compatible with the concept, “Most people associate 15-minute neighbourhoods with the introduction of Ultra Low Emission Zones and Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs), which place restrictions on how cars can move about a city.
LTNs have proved extremely unpopular with some motorists, who are no longer able to move about their local area as they please.”
“Councils across the UK have faced fierce opposition to the implementation of LTNs, with protesters resorting to pouring oil on roads or vandalising bollards put in place to restrict traffic.
On February 19, thousands of people joined a protest in Oxford against plans to introduce LTNs in the city as part of the council’s wider 15-minute city plan.
