On Gated Communities

I've never come close to comprehending the mentality it takes to live in one, but this article seems a pretty fair shake. I think I would be pretty happy if all the people that want to live like that went and did so and never interacted with the rest of us, but only if they were sufficiently isolated that I didn't have to have my bike route interrupted or the like.

More than just gated communities, however, I wouldn't want to live anywhere with association fees. All those people giving up their freedom for some notion of security that is probably not very real.
