Social and spatial inequality is no longer considered a mistake that should be redressed, but a goal to be pursued. The very production of the city is meant to produce inequalities. The enclosure is a powerful device that erodes and eats up public space and transforms the city in a sequence of private spaces, which are now described with the same language by urban planners and developers alike, when establishing nodes and catalysts for opportunities, and at the same time ghettos and off limits areas.
