The End of Man?
"Teletotal rendered all meeting places unnecessary. Shops became superfluous, for the goods in them could be examined from the customer's home. Once teletotal had come into general use, people found it unnecessary to live in towns, they preferred some pleasant garden city, or a village. Large cities soon became tourist attractions, having no other use." - Olof Johannesson, The End of Man? (1968)
