I see one point of optimism in your list, and that's in the US where of course people are moving out of the suburbs because they're getting foreclosed out of them!!

Optimism is nice but what's needed is a reality check on how corrosive the suburbs actually are on society. They are massive social leeches, they hold the balance of power, they keep our country in an entropic state of mediocrity, they will remain small-c conservative whether the threat is nazism or global warming, their social responsibility is limited to their front porch. If they do move back into the cities I fear we will need to sequester them in camps to teach them ethical behaviour.
