Libertarian Commentary #16-19C, by Nathan Barton
American “society” and “civilization” are changing before our eyes, and the changes are not pretty. Part of this is the increasing urbanization and “uber-urbanization” (pun intended) of the Fifty States. Those who live in the upper-class areas and the suburban zones of the great conurbations just do not care about, and do not understand, the rest of the nation; not the small cities and towns, not the rural areas, and especially not the frontier areas where the population is less than 5 per square mile (people, not cows) – and indeed in many areas in which I live, work, and travel, less than 1 person per mile.
