Some are just ridiculous though, 4. Commutes to the city represent wasted time that could be used more effectively for the betterment of humankind.
I mean like what do these people do with their lives???
2. Skyscrapers create "concrete canyon" environments hostile to humans. When was the last time u felt any hostility from a skyscraper? To me there is no real argument.

It seems tongue-in-cheek to me - especially the comment about time used for the betterment of humankind. However, if it's meant seriously....nope I just can't take it seriously
