Frankly speaking, I think we here in "fly-over" country have seen too much "social science interface" and "public policy" and the push for "urbanization."

I agree. Then, there are those like me who are introverted (I'm border-line) and who can't stand to be in crowded areas for long without an opportunity to be alone to recharge. Many of them are probably unaware of their introversion (I found out during blanket Meyer-Briggs testing in the military at age 38) and only know they are miserable.

I reckon we’ll see the full potential for ‘psychopathology’ in urban environs when thinge get really tough. Never get between the herd and a cliff...

When I started to read a story recently, in which one sentence starts “Although I agreed with most Portlanders that increased density was better than urban sprawl...” I knew that its viewpoint would be so far left as to make the story unreadable. Because who in their right mind genuinely wants to live crammed like bees into tiny apartments in mammoth buildings?

The stress of being crowded, the filth and vermin—it’s not surprising that people living in those conditions have a higher incidence of mental illness.

This brings to mind the song by FEAR called, “I Love Living in the City”.

People are animals.

Animals don't like living cooped up in cages.

Animals don't like being forced to live with other animals that are different than themselves, particularly animals that are prey don't like being forced to live with predators.

Predators that go unchecked become more vicious and will prey just for fun and not for food.

Hmmmmmmm..........? I remember back a million years ago in my intro to psychology class where the instructor said that if you forced too many rats to live together, they started to display homosexual behavior. Hmmmmmm.....?

It could be that people with this condition are drawn to the cities because they offer more facilities for their problems.
