The Geography of Nowhere
“We created a landscape of scary places, and we became a nation of scary people.”
“The problem with our common American daily environments is not that they are too uniform, but that they are of uniformly miserable quality.”
“It is hard to imagine a culture less concerned than ours with the things that make life worth living.”
Words by James Howard Kunstler via Project for Public Spaces. I believe most of them are from the book The Geography of Nowhere, which is the namesake of this post.
