Cities are more than just conglomerations of people. Irregardless of the actual process by which cities formed in terms of history, nowadays they
serve distinct purposes. All those people that live in the citites, they have jobs there. They live there for a reason. One would have to alter
those reasons. It doesn't matter how high tech things are, people are still going to offices to do their work. Even if they telecommute part of the
time, there are still going to have to be people working in centralized offices. Also, forcing companies to work in seperate towns and be spread out
would be, i think, illegal and wrong. Not only that, but, if they are evenly spread out, what happens when a company goes down? The entire town will
crumble. This happens already, it'd be worse if all companies were spread out like that. And in terms of shipping, any port is going to have
something like a city around it, and lots of companies are going to want to be located near it.
As far as underground cities, the tech really isn't there to build cities particularly deep, and also the cost of replicating entire cities,
underground nonetheless, is insurmountable, not without conscripted labour and massive nationalization efforts. Also, any city it still going to have
connections to the above ground, not to mention the need for above ground agricultural farms. So they'd be even more vulnerable, having centralized,
government run air conduits
for one thing.

Just deport the muslims and their should be no terrorist attacks.
Maybe instead everyone could deport racist reactionary idiots, then there'd be less problems.
But this can only happen if the terrorism gets out control and the mass majority call for the deporations.
Newsflash, its unconstitutional to deport american citizens.
