Fair points - I've managed to reaffirm a point I often make against others - using my acute personal experiences to make judgements. I grew up in rural NH, cops were 100% fucking assholes. The big central town was just over 6000 with demographics of >96% white, 2% Asian and less than a handful of black families. I'll admit a lot of that was based on specific prejudiced individuals I've known in rural areas. There are definitely plenty of decent people in rural areas and cities, and plenty of angry hateful selfish assholes in both places too who still eagerly support our garbage president and the hate he promotes.

But we both make the same point, that people in cities and rural areas are both important, and that a big part of the divisiveness is inability for one to understand the struggles of the other. I just wanted to point out instances that can enhance that disconnect, and should not apply it as a blanket assessment of all rural areas in general

I very much reject the idea that rural areas are more important though, or that cities don't deserve equal voice, person for person, just because rural areas supply more basic needs.
