For a country to rise means for a country to industrialize. With the growth of the economy and standard of living comes the consequential growth in waste, overcrowding, and demand.

To emerge from the metaphorical dark of pre-industrialized cities into the light of new technology creates a wanting of the so called “new and improved”. Is this a good thing? While the people in these countries desire an easier life, the functionality of an overcrowded city is greatly compromised. Lines grow along side the multitudes of people.
Imagine this: they’ve finally put a subway in your town. You ride the subway to school everyday and over the months this seems a great improvement over the normal routine.
