“Beware the ‘tion-factor'”

The writer in the link below compels us to be wary of the “tion-factor”:  amalgamation, deinstitutionalization, privatization, globalization, suburbanization and intensification.

Government and business love such words because when John and Jane Q. Citizen hear or read them they think:  “that sounds important; it must be the right thing to do.”

“There is a growing movement of us who are not interested in endless suburbia and big-box stores. We would take 20 small self-contained sets of communities over one large metropolis any time.”
