LA obviously didn’t just rise out the ground as the big megalithic city it is today. Equipped with the food, music, and culture that currently inhabits it. It obviously arose over the course of the last hundred years on the backs of the American industrial revolution. I don’t know if anyone anticipated the exponential growth that was going to take place here in LA, and all the negative consequences that were going to come with it. As we idealize LA, and envision the potential of this great city, and even the potential for the whole world, we must first acknowledge where we came from, and what got us here in the first place. To discover what set us upon this trajectory in the first place.
