Casualty of Cultural Conquest

In another addition to my occasional posts on suburbanism (averaging about 1 per year), I want to point to a brief essay by David Sirota entitled "Anywhere becomes Everywhere."  It ends as follows:

As we have faced health, energy and environmental emergencies that demand customized answers, homogenization has taken us from “think global, act local” to “obsess federal, ignore local”—right when imminent crises mean we need to act more locally than ever. Because of this, America may yet become a casualty of its own cultural conquest.
But, read the whole essay.  It will take you every bit of 5 minutes.
