cities make us civilised

because if we live in a city we have some measure of loyalty to others who live there (even if we don;t like them, we acknowledge that we live in the same place and to some extent at least belong to that place) and those others do not belong to our tribe or family. This is a great step forward for humanity. Hat-tip Norm for this on the subject.
