Just say no

The people who run cities are often baffled by them. Serious people in London are now talking about traffic congestion remedies that involve people just staying put. Just say no to travel.

But the Stay-at-Home Society would do away with the reasons for anyone congregating in cities -- and accepting the costs of doing so. The "anti-movement" movement suggests that managing travel is beyond us so let's just not travel. Well then why not leave the city altogether? What would be the point of staying?

Thanks to Gabriel Roth for the pointer.
