In 1999 an episode of a popular science fiction show The X-Files was made as a reference to the idyllic gated community In this episode the two main characters who went undercover as Rob and Laura Petrie were investigating a series of disappearances in a rich gated community development named The Falls of Arcadia which appeared to be racially equal In ancient Greece Arcadia was a rustic secluded area and its inhabitants became proverbial as primitive herdsmen leading simple pastoral unsophisticated yet happy lives to the point that Arcadia may refer to some imaginary idyllic paradise immortalized by Vergils Eclogues set in ArcadiaApollodorus As a resident came to the front gate to enter their pass code they were greeted by soothing music and a soft spoken voice that kindly requested them to enter their code and when the code was entered correctly the voice would welcome the resident specifically by name therefore inebriating the resident with a false sense of security Every house in the development has to be up to code in accordance with the official CCandRs which stand for Contracts Covenants and Rules As the story unfolds you find out that the disappearances are linked to the original home owners who came together and decided to conjure up an to take care of the people who do not want to follow the contracts covenants and rules of the community As a result this community was named as one of the top ranked planned communities in all of California When looking in on a high-class gated community where nature may play an important role in the appellation of the settlement on might see the perfect homestead big luxurious housing rich amenities including spas pools golf courses and playgrounds and most importantly safety Striving to live the American Dream high-class residents of gated communities often overlook the real nature of their situation Raising children in a consumer driven atmosphere can often promote incorrect ideals
