Interactions between City Planners, Artists, Scientists and Citizens
"The better constituted the state, the more public affairs outweigh
private ones in the minds of citizens.... Under a bad government, no one cares
to take even a step to attend them: no one takes an interest in what is done
there, since it is predictable that the general will won't prevail, and so finally
domestic concerns absorb everything."
