Let’s hope the fallacy doesn’t really persist into the far-distant future, as is portrayed in the film The Fifth Element.
And from Wikipedia:
In Le Corbusier’s The Radiant City (1935) this sentiment is shared by those that supported road projects that led to today’s suburban sprawl: “…The cities will be part of the country; I shall live 30 miles from my office in one direction, under a pine tree; my secretary will live 30 miles away from it too, in the other direction, under another pine tree. We shall both have our own car. We shall use up tires, wear out road surfaces and gears, consume oil and gasoline. All of which will necessitate a great deal of work … enough for all.”
