Unsustainable scale of development

Large-scale development
Claim:
The main concern today should not be pollution, resource depletion, over-population, the nuclear threat, poverty, unemployment or crime, but rather the scale on which these problems are occurring. Everything in our mass societies is heading for explosive breakdown, the inevitable natural consequence of a structure grossly exceeding its optimum scale.
