city and country

In Uncategorized on October 1, 2011 at 07:53

I see how in the Russian countryside the city folk dreams to live close to the nature, not just stay here on holidays, but most of the village and small town dwellers wants to move to the city, to give up their land, to fill up yet another huge ugly apartment block.

So, I’m bothered with a question: Why people who live close to nature, see the beauty every day, have fresh air to breath and birds to listen to, are often unhappy, jealous and hostile? Are they already so deeply affected by modern consumer culture watching TV and doing their shopping in towns and cities?

I think almost any way to earn money is hard, one way or another. It may be the stress (separation from family and home) or unhealthy lifestyle instead of the hard physical work, but the hard bit is still here.

Its just like people don’t feel any inspiration from marvelous countryside around them, instead they think themselves being on some unfortunate margin of modern society.
