Superb Articulation on the Tragedy of No Place

"The immersive ugliness of our everyday environment in America is entropy made visible," James Howard Kunstler begins his brilliant presentation on the Tragedy of Suburbia. "We cannot over estimate the amount of despair that we are generating. Mostly I want to persuade you that we have to do better if we're going to continue the project of civilization in America."

I strongly urge you to watch his 20-minute presentation, which succinctly discusses how we can create "places worth caring about" again: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/james_howard_kunstler_dissects_suburbia.html,
