When SHTF they fix the big cities first, and may never fix rural areas. Let them freeze in the dark.
Remote areas have very long lines for utilities, food distribution, medical care, etc. Overly dependent on too many people to get life support.
If something breaks down they die and nobody knows or cares.
Even if working they don’t work well, expensive, low quality utilities, doctors,…
As 1000 years ago the King and rich retreat into the castle where the food was stored and they could protect themselves from enemies. People left outside perished.
Big government FDR rural electrification, rural water, etc. has put too many Americans too far from education and medical services. At tax payer expense.
Move the sheeple into the city where they can can be forced to get off drugs, TV, and junk food.
China moved a half billion people off the farms over the past few decades to where they would be happier, healthier, and less prone to revolution to get out of their misery. You can’t get them back on the farm after they have seen gay Paris. Give them phones computers high speed internet, etc. and a college education.
Cheaper than decades of diabetes, drug rehab, poor quality medical, expensive slow telecommunications, junk food delivered by lots of fossil fuels….
