From Drake Adams
Staying put
Those who grew up in the greening-of-America suburbs have no where to stay put because those suburbs do not have a place. In well-designed architecture, a person is always in place, and is at rest. So likewise with the community outside. Just as those in a properly ordered family are at rest in the family, and are at rest in the properly ordered community outside of the family which is an extension of the family. And those who had their neighborhoods destroyed via urban renewal and other like-minded programs which were intended to destroy place, have no reason to remain where they are because they grew up as foreigners to their new neighborhoods.
