The Thoreau Institute

Our award for the most badly misnamed organization in America goes to the Thoreau Institute.

The Thoreau Institute deals with only one issue: it attacks pedestrian-oriented development, and it defends automobile-oriented development.

It obviously has never heard that Thoreau believed in simple living and that his favorite form of transportation was walking.

NOTE: There are several groups named the Thoreau Institute. This post refers only to the Thoreau Institute that is run by Randal O'Toole.
