Cities

what do you think will happen to cities? do you think there will be a wave of white flight/wealth flight? will cities be more out of control?
corona has already shown signs of prompting richer people to leave cities and probably a lot of businesses that can function without having people coming in physically might strip down or leave behind their brick and mortar presence. there might be a bunch of vacant shit as a result. desert and military analysts are both talking about the growth of cities creating things that feel more uncontrollable from a governmental perspective, though not necessarily outside of capital. with the whole smart city thing coming up and the trend of yuppies basing a part of their identity on being into urban life (bars, proximity to prole shit, local food) will that keep the "decline" in check? longer term climate change seems like it would make crime in cities go up as shit get worse.
