I'm all for MagLev. And I agree we should pioneer building cool shit again.
However the political climate and the divide that comes along with that isn't conducive to projects like this....especially projects where NIMBY's will be running wild.
These latest developments are very positive, though. Here's hoping for the best.
The problem isn't political disagreement... the problem is the total lack of concern for doing cool shit... people can disagree about all manner of political crap and still get behind doing cool stuff... what we need is political leaders from both parties who can recognize cool shit and agree to make it happen... it's a leadership problem more than a purely political problem...
If the leadership problem got solved, then we could handle the NIMBY's...
