It seems to me that a life revolving around a high concentration of people, concrete, chickens or cattle is a tragic mistake.


Migration to towns and cities is very recent – mostly limited to the past 200 years Urban living is a very recent development. For most of our history humans lived in low-density, rural settings. Prior to 1600, it’s estimated that the share of the world population living in urban settings did not reach 5%. By 1800, this share reached 7%; and by 1900 had increased to 16%.




Imagine being able to breathe and actually see stars at night!

WV Gov: Return to Rural Life...


“We’re seeing that some of the most densely packed cities are what’s getting hit the hardest,” said Marlow of coronavirus infection rates. “It makes perfect sense when people literally live on top of each other and are sharing the same subway cabs constantly.


If you could see what I’ve lived with every day in West Virginia, you would be packing up and heading here tomorrow, because it’s the most pristine air, the most pristine water, good family people that have real values, low crime, good schools, the roads are good.”
