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.

Which picture below shows an addiction scenario? …and why do people, in their millions, suddenly seek pharmaceutical solutions to the challenges of life? How is this generation so different from all those before?!

So, again, which picture shows an addiction scenario? Not the happy-looking people, we suppose, right? Don’t be deceived. Psychiatric drugs very often do not resolve the ‘condition’. Ask many people that experienced this themselves or that knew a family member on & off these drugs (like in my case). How well did it work? How was quality of life improved (or not)? Looking at the statistics alone tells us there is a massive problem … and we’re not addressing it in the right way. The book at the bottom of the page might be useful for more info (no, the author of this post doesn’t get sales commission). You can also see Dr Breggin’s site.
