- Upland, Sweden
In the '60s social scientists were claiming that the suburbs would be the death of culture and individualism, while celebrating the urban high rise "Projects" public housing as the fruition of mankind. LOL, man, they got that backwards.
Also, clustering people together like ants is a great way to make social (and therefore also individual) distinctions dissappear and everyone become "equal". Perhaps I am a cynic but I have a slight gut-feeling that's really what these social scientists wanted, and lookes upon as the "fruition" of mankind. If you wanted to be even more cynical you could also say that people are a lot easier to rule when they start acting like one big mass...
Come to think of it, isn't it a bit of trend in most US inner-cities (it certainly is over here in our semi-urban commie-blocks) of the same party being in power for decades...?
