No one else is going to call this one out? Read, read, read this sentence. See the problem?
The problem is actually that people assume that NOBODY could want to live in rural areas. In fact, people in rural areas are generally good people who just want to be left alone by big-city folks who think they're superior. I'm actually from the NYC area. People generally have a superiority complex.
First of all, I do not think any reasonable person assumed NOBODY could want to live in rural areas. That would simply be an insane assumption and even people who never want to live there themselves can easily recognize that other types of people exist who love those areas.
Second of all, this sentence: "In fact, people in rural areas are generally good people who just want to be left alone by big-city folks who think they're superior." Has the same sort of hypocrisy as the original sentence I quoted. It's an arrogant self-identification through "at least I'm not THOSE people" that flows both ways. People who live in rural America are no more innocent of this than anyone else.
"People generally have a superiority complex."
Meh, I guess? At least online personalities tend to, but I haven't found this to be true in my day-to-day life.
