Catch US if you can

I mean the United States, of course, because that’s what this is about – catching the West.

You should see what a circus of a country Poland has become. But so have the US, too! You don’t need to know a lot about politics to know that the US is messed up, and so is Poland. Seems like we’ve caught up with the West after all.

Another reason why we’ve caught up with it is that the trend of suburbanisation, i.e. building monofunctional housing estates on the outskirts of town so that you have trouble commuting to basically anywhere on a daily basis and use up huge amounts of resources as a result, BUT you live ‘away from’ the ‘messy’ ‘city centre’.

It’s not good to always try to be like someone else. It’d be good to, perhaps, look at other countries’ history and figure out if we could avoid some bad things that happened to them. Well, whatever. I suppose you’ll need your car after all.
