The biggest problem with large cities here in the U.S. is they are run by DemocRATS. From what I understand, large cities in the Orient in places such as Singapore, Japan and Malaysia are modern wonders to behold. Of course, they don’t have Greenie whack jobs and RAT politicians to contend with. My cousin John lived in Singapore. He said the cities here in the U.S. are 3rd world compared to the Orient.
Rats running a nut house sounds like a natural enviornment for cities.
I went to great expense to raise my family in a country setting because I did not want the boys raised in the social stress (insanity) of a city. It’s hard enough growing up and becoming a man without playing human predator and prey every day of your young life.
A city child’s disconnect with his own self and nature is severe. We participated in a summer program for city kids and took a boy from Harlem into our house. His amazement and love of the country’s grew but first he had to deal with the issue of being with his own senses, mind and body. He was driven in the city in reaction to the city and never had the experience of driving himself. One of the things he was most overwhelmed by was the smell of the country versus the smell of Harlem. Sometimes he’d just sit out back, listen to nature and sniff. LOL
