An interesting example of anarchism in action. It appears many people liked it. It was interesting to see that electrical intake in the stairwell which proves that where services were actually desired by the inhabitants, they were available. The same goes for the unlicensed dentists and eateries. Just because a dentist doesn't have a license from the government, it doesn't mean they can't fix your teeth.

Fyi anarco-capitalism is a totally different thing than full blown anarchy. AnCap simply means a more free market, less govt

Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t this place a map in black ops 1? During a mission I believe also was made into a dlc multiplayer map. Seems so familiar to me I don’t know.

Jackie Chan made a film in there, just before it was knocked down. It's called Crime Story. I think they allowed him to film certain scenes as the place was being demolished and they used it in the film. It's how I discovered the place 😁

An interesting idea. I’ve recently thought to myself, if we are to save Mother Earth from humanity, well then we would have to place the entire human population into hive city’s spread out across the world, dus saving the environment from humanity. 1 Hive City for Europe. 2 hive city’s for USA So on so forth, but I’d told myself humanity’s weren’t ready for doing this, turns out I was wrong.

Kowloon walled city? YEs. Kowloon Walled City. The garbage I believe was actually put out on the street. Once it originally had piled up to a ridiculous height, then Hong Kong decided to just handle it from then on. Edit Again: Van Damme made a movie there, BloodSport.

Usually the sponsorships (Skillshare and otherwise) are pretty useful on this channel but I feel this particular one fell flat. I don’t need to learn from a professional photographer just to take pictures. I have taken photography classes before and they help some but just for taking basic photos, I was doing that years earlier. August 31, 2019 5:01 am
