Utopia and Arcosanti It's been 500 years since Thomas More published his great work of social and urban philosophy, Utopia. More's vision inspired the ideal cities of the Renaissance, the garden city movement, Le Corbusier's modernist City of Tomorrow, as well as the Israeli kibbutzim and the hippie communes of the 1970s. It's also inspired the theme for this year's London Design Biennale. Meanwhile, Silicon Valley firms are thinking about future "smart cities." DnA learns about Utopian planning, future -- and past, with a visit to Arcosanti , an experimental community built in 1970 on a mesa in Yavapai County in central Arizona.

He’s installed climate deniers at the head of major agencies, and approved huge oil pipelines.
What does the Paris terrorist attack mean for Europe? There was another terrorist attack in Paris Thursday. A police officer was killed, two other officers were wounded, and the shooter was killed.

How California gave birth to Trumpism California served as an incubator for the hard-line conservative thinking that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. It’s an ideology birthed out of opposition to the liberal politics and multiculturalism that now dominate the state.
