Chapter 7: When the Margins Explode

p217

“This was like its Iranian cousin, an explosion from the urban centre that simply used the arrival city as fuel. There is another war arrival cities can explode; by developing their own potent political movements and sending them inward to seize the political centre of the larger city, and possible the nation. The arrival city take-over of the city and the nation is a new phenomenon, but is likely to becoming the defining political event of the century, as neglected ex-migrant communities, which in many countries will soon represent a majority of the population, demand their own representation.”
