Everybody Moves

"What makes this city different is that nobody expects to be in one
 place for ten minutes. Everybody moves all the time. Seven nameless men own everything and move us around on a board. People are swept out into the streets because the owners need the space. Then they are swept off the streets because someone owns the air they breathe. Men buy and sell air in the sky and there are bodies heaped together in boxes on the sidewalk. then they sweep away the boxes."

Don DeLillo, Mao II
