Remember this?

This was Glenn Beck’s worst nightmare. Sustainable planned communities were going to destroy our future, he feared.

But over the past few weeks, Beck seems to have had a change of heart. He’s now promoting his own Independence, USA, a “city-theme park hybrid” to be located somewhere in Texas with abundant “craftmen and artisan” small businesses and stores, a working ranch “where visitors can learn how to farm and work the land,” an innovation center, and dedicated mixed-income housing.
