Why stop at thirty - why not 20 or 10. Or better yet no cars.

Because dichotomous absolutist hyperbole is neither the purpose nor the goal. Implementing good modern standards of calming and multi-modal road building inside inner cities, with a view to reducing/mitigating injuries and improving comfort and quality of life, is the goal. That said, if an entire car free neighborhood came into existence, I think it'd be so popular, I'd quickly be priced out.

doubt that vast majority of people who drive would ever agree to a lower limit

I agree completely.

the answer is in road design

I agree completely, I think everyone here realizes that is where the best results will come from.

In medieval times, the few ruled and harmed the masses.

The analogy was quick and off the top of my head. It is a bit imprecise, you're right. Perhaps the analogy would be closer to trying to teach medieval masses modern science. That would probably go very well, you definitely wouldn't be burned in the town square. :p
