    Urbanization Is Decay

    Ancient cities arose not by decree from a centralized political power, as was previously widely believed, but as the outgrowth of decisions made by smaller groups or individuals, according to a new study from researchers at Harvard University, the University of Cambridge, and the University of Edinburgh.

    "Urbanism does not appear to have originated with a single, powerful ruler or political entity. Instead, it was the organic outgrowth of many groups coming together."

    This kind of cosmopolitical growth is the sign of lack of organic consensus. America is one prime example of this; several groups unite under a political federation that eventually collapses from within due to to criminality, disunity, corruption and ethnic tensions. Just like Rome eventually fell into ruins when it could no longer keep people united under one political rule, America will fall, Kosovo will fall, and all other cosmopoliticial entities with them.

    I don't see how the study leads the conclusion that the blogger forms, if anything the reverse, if cities arose 'the organic outgrowth', it was only the later addition of 'a centralized political power' that led to the decay.
