Broken Window Syndrome

broken-windowA house or office building with all its glass intact tends to stay intact.  But, if one of the windows is broken and not immediately repaired, pretty soon all the other windows will be broken because people will think no one cares.  It’s the opening wedge to more serious decay in the quality of their life.  When people see graffiti unattended they believe the quality of their life has been threatened in a personal way and they begin to wonder whether the good guys or the bad guys control the neighborhood.  By James Wilson, Social Scientist, UCLA
