Answer: First of all, it still depends on the attitude between one person toward another. But it is much easier to implement this when you create natural conditions for people.
I often visited my friends and students in small towns in America where it takes half an hour to get from one house to another by car because these houses are surrounded by a lot of land. But since everyone has a car, it is not difficult to socialize.
And although it is a long way to go to work, it is still much more comfortable to live like this. People get used to it.
I think that cities, the way they are today—multi-story reinforced concrete or brick boxes—are absolutely not ecological and unproductive.
They may be beneficial to those who build them because you can easily bring all communications into one place and populate one building with several thousand people. But I would not go to a house like this. Although, on the other hand, I have lived in such houses all my life.
I am confident that the future lies in a more evenly populated land.
