“Claustropolis or Cosmopolis?”

“Claustropolis or Cosmopolis? A society of enforced seclusion or a society of forcible control? Actually, the dilemma itself seems illusory, with the temporal compression of instantaneity and the ubiquity of the age of the information revolution.”

– Paul Virilio, The Original Accident (Cambridge, 2007), 68 (text compressed)
