The Mall as Church

"The fundamental need to give meaning to your life, once channeled by religion, has increasingly been taken over by corporations, who, in effect, sell soul, along with Gucci purses and cashmere sweaters. The fact that malls increasingly fulfill the role that churches, parks, and other formerly civic spaces once occupied is not only curious, but often downright creepy."

~ From Dorothy Woodend's "Malls R Us"
