Urbanism, Corporatism, Congestion, Happiness

I woke up today from a horrific dream, one which I can only hope won't come true, but on reflection I can see it happening around the world today, let alone in the future.

In my dream I was in a farming community, the locals where struggling to make ends meet, due to drought, competition, not unlike the farmers of Australia today.
A town meeting was called, on the way to the meeting I was overheard someone that suggested most people at the meeting where going to contract a terrible disease, I can't remember the name of it, but it was horrible.  Their was a vaccine mind, which some of the townsfolk had, it seemed that the townsfolk that had the vaccine where the ones that agreed with the big business and developers, the people that didn't have the vaccine disagreed.
On realising that the town meeting was all about turning the farming community into a Suburban area.... another disgusting array of 1/4 acre blocks, spread out so far from any resources that you would have to drive to do anything, I promptly realised what was going on, and that if I didn't get out of there soon, I was going to be killed by the "disease" so I promptly got out of there.
