    Default City vs Village

    Which do you guys prefer? I personally have lived in a large city (NYC), suburb and a small town. There are pros and cons to both, however, I prefer to live in a small town near a city.

    Living in a small town:

    -People are more friendly
    -People are more conservative
    -Not much to do
    -You will see people you know everywhere (school, church, hospital, college, work, gym, library, movie theater, shops etc) therefore I think social life is better in small towns. You also personally know most people such as doctors, teachers, mail man, etc.
    -Jobs are hard to find
    -Life is slower paced
    -Less pollution
    -Lower crime rate
    -Peaceful
    -CLoser to nature
    -Gossips spread quicker
    -Typically everyone knows each other. So police officers won't give ticket for speeding

    Living in a city:

    -People are more liberal
    -More jobs
    -More variety in shopping, movie theaters, hospitals, schools etc
    -Harder to make friends
    -Life is fast paced
    -No stars in the sky
    -More pollution
    -Higher crime rate
    -Gossips don't spread as quick
    -Diversity
    -Bad schools



    The reason why I prefer living in small town is I believe people are tribal by nature. We have been living in tribes or villages for centuries. City dwellers have always been a minority. It's in our nature to live near farms, and get to know people in our village personally. People in villages celebrate everything together....birthdays, weddings, holidays etc. But they also are there for your bad times like funerals.

    Suburban American town:
    -quiet and peaceful
    -have to drive everywhere

    City-urban life:
    -easy access to nightlife
    -public transportation readily available
    -loud and exciting

    ...
    Tough one. If you'd of asked me 2 years ago I'd of said the small-town option. If you'd ask me right now I'd say urban-city living for the sheer grandiosity of its tall skyscrapers and bustling nightlife; I also wouldn't need to own a car...but maybe its because I'm currently living an urban lifestyle atm as opposed to 6 years ago where I was a suburban dude, but now have come to greatly appreciate city life.

    Small town without a doubt. Cities are too atomistic for me. There are so many people, and yet it's so lonely and everyone's shelled up inside themselves.

    I like living in both places but not stuck in one place entirely. Though if I had to really choose, I'd choose a big city because despite the annoyances and inconveniences, at least I will have opportunities and stimulation, and access to all the great institutions.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. Sure you walk pass hundreds of people when living in a city. But you are still very lonely because you don't know them! In villages there are fewer people. But at least you get to know them and talk to them!

    It really depends on personality. I think materialistic people prefer cities because of large skyscrapers, grand malls etc. While humble people prefer villages because of simplicity and nature.

    Only a person who lacks a core surrounds himself with 'stuff', to hide the emptiness but also because such a person would be ignorant that it's an inner life that he lacks. He needs constant distractions to forget this loneliness, emptiness. The noise of the city masks the sound of his own thought, he doesn't need to confront himself when the cars are buzzing.

    I think it's metaphysical in origin. Yuri Slezkine uses the terms Mercurial and Apollonian to distinguish these two types of people, which fits into Dugin's dialectic (which is metaphysical) of thalassocracy vs. thellurocracy.

    I have always lived in a metropolis and I'm really used to it,so I prefer large cities over villages.
