'Since the end of World War II, the economic, technological and social forces of industrialism have pretty thoroughly disintegrated the rural communities of the United States and, I believe, of other parts of the world also, inducing in them a "mobility" that has boiled over in the cities, disintegrating them as well.' 
Wendell Berry, 'Local Knowledge in the Age of Information' in The Way of Ignorance, p.115.
