The feudal lords, during the Middle Ages, in their attempt to seize the land and their citizens, they designed and built residential complexes.
The cities were built to be functional but mainly controlled.
In the same way and today’s leaders plan and build cities.
A typical example is Brazil. In 1960 the then president Zouselino Koumpitsek inaugurated the new city and the country’s capital, Brasilia.
Cities should be ”constructed correct ” . It should certainly serve the purpose for which they were built :
1) To provide control of the population.
2) To create directional needs.
3) To create the ultimate sense of collegiality.
See some leaders to plan the construction of new residential standards :

Recent and private companies have undertaken to build cities, such as IKEA.
In 2009, IKEA bought an area outside London. There, builds her own city the LandProp .
Even old towns are the target of ”politically correct” .
In New York , in the 90’s , dominated the dogma of ”zero tolerance” . Then mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani ”reformed” the city. He paint the walls , erased graffities , buildings that gave birth to crime ”disappeared” and entire neighborhoods changed use. All this was done to control the population of a mega-city.
Prohibitions and policing of citizens is now a key feature of cities. ALL MADE IN THE NAME OF SECURITY , ARMED BY FEAR.
We need to protect the place we live.
We must not allow anyone to define our lives.
Resistance to the imposition of lifestyle and behavior imposed on us.
WHOEVER CONTROLS OUR PLACE , CONTROLS AND OUR BEHAVIOR.
