Cities, on average, are bad for people, that much I intuitively knew for some time – and that not just because of traffic & crime, or even stress. If you’re unconvinced, remember this post. Maybe you’ll rethink your position one day. Yes, I’m deeply convinced about this.

The following goes some way towards proving that thought. Economically, cities make sense of course, but then again that part is all about the money & greed. Like we know, “the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” Even if you are not Biblically-minded, you can, hopefully, still see the truth of the quote above – even if you have to ignore the mention of “faith”.

Sadly, however, the balance has shifted so significantly that urbanization isn’t something that can be reversed in the bigger scheme of things. Much is likely only due to what people aspire to … and the difficulty in toning down our expectations to gain the more ‘invisible’ benefits in life.
