    The flocking of millennials to the big cities is actually a perfectly rational migration in response to powerful subterranean economic forces. The jobs most resistant to automation are going to be found in the big cities. It is the big cities that will have the highly specialized jobs that only humans can still do. Technological forces are going to amplify the rate of urbanization around the globe over the next two to three decades to a very surprising degree. If you are a young person in America today, and you want to end up poor, then just continue to hang out in some small or medium-sized town some distance away from any big city. Those communities are not going to be doing as well in the future. Move to the metropolis, young man, and seek out your fortune!

    Progress bro. Regressiveness is for the birds.
    What about the Four Freedoms?
