Suburban sprawl leads to social atomisation and fragmen

Suburban sprawl leads to social atomisation and fragmentation and is environmentally disastrous, as carbon-intensive car journeys displace local shops and replace public transport.

Jill Abramson
Europe’s fragmentation puts the wider historical picture beyond reach.
Norman Davies
Fragmentation is a big part of the problem. You have a city where trash is taken away from the curb every week, and you don’t see it any more, and you don’t have any sense of where water comes from. So there’s no sense of responsibility and accountability and there’s also no sense of empowerment for our actions.
Severn Cullis-Suzuki
Not only is natural burial by far the most ecologically sound way to perish, it doubles down on the fear of fragmentation and loss of control. Making the choice to be naturally buried says, ‘Not only am I aware that I’m a helpless, fragmented mass of organic matter, I celebrate it. Vive la decay!’
Caitlin Doughty

Federico Fellini

Kim Campbell
Australia can no longer afford to go down the path of confrontation and fragmentation which has embittered and disfigured so many aspects of the national life.

When we’re awake, cortisol can fragment memories – one reason eyewitness crime scene accounts are so unreliable. But at night that very fragmentation allows creative recombinations of ideas.
Jeffrey Kluger
Without the BBC, the proliferation of television and radio channels by the private sector would simply result in more and more channels, with tiny audiences, all seeking to do the same thing. The future would be one of fragmentation – fragmentation without either plurality or diversity.

Alexandra Adornetto
