When I was in government schools, we learned that in the 1800s, people moved
to cities to find jobs. I think the fear now days, is that people in cities
are much easier to control than rural people.
Gun control: It's about control.

I didn't hear it, but in developing countries, like China, the
movement of rural folk into the city is just the way it is, no
resolution needed. The rural standard of living is poor and, in
China's case, there aren't a lot of chicks around for the young guys
(There aren't in the city either but it's a bigger pool of chicks).
So perhaps what you heard was not so much a discussion of "making
people move" but a discussion of "how to deal with all the people who
ARE going to be moving".
