Once the city came into existence, with its collective increase in power in every department, this whole situation underwent a change. Instead of raids and sallies for single victims, mass extermination and mass destruction came to prevail. What had once been a magic sacrifice to ensure fertility and abundant crops, an irrational act to promote a rational purpose, was turned into the exhibition of the power of one community, under its wrathful god and priest-king, to control, subdue or totally wipe out another community. Much of this aggression was unprovoked, and morally unjustified by the aggressor; though by the time the historic record becomes clear, some economic color would be given to war by reason of political tensions arising over disputed boundaries or water rights. But the resulting human and economic losses, in earliest times no less than today, were out of all proportion to the tangible stakes for which they were fought.

For many, influenced by the concept of megalopolis, there has been a fear that somehow such urban growth had to be detrimental to the human spirit, to society, to communities, to families and to the individual. Twentieth-century ills of alienation, social division and violence were put down to the evil effects of megalopolis. While many have raised their voices to protest at unlimited urbanisation, two propagandists of their view stand out: Patrick Geddes and Lewis Mumford.
