I recently came across this Simple Dollar blog post – “Why I Prefer Living Rural” and largely agreed with it. I did have two quibbles.
- There was no mention of privacy and anonymity, the two greatest things about living in the city. It is impossible to keep your life exclusively yours in the county. Lots of people like being in a close community, but I enjoy living unknown.
- Culture – the problem with the country is not the lack of “culture”, but rather one must actively participate in cultural activities if you want to have any. In the city culture is passive, in the country it’s something you make.
