Western urbanites are people that live in cities
countries - that is, first-world countries like the United States
, and most countries
. So are they just people who live in Western cities? Well, sort of, except there is something very special
about them: it is almost as if they are a separate class
beings due to the different social
by so many people
living in such small areas
, and similar economic
pressures. The contrast between city
is like that between an expressway
and an open field
There are many hazards of being a Western urbanite: strong frictions are created between groups of people, and racial discrimination increases, as does crime generally, drug associate problems, and poverty - also the standards of the physical environment decrease dramatically as more people are pulling on natural resources - clean air for example is hard to find in a city.
There are also enormous benefits of living in a city, all basically to do with availablity of resources, in particular human resources. Academia, commerce, and the standard of life in general all benefit from the situation.
