Urban Life

"The New Normal"


We are not in Kansas anymore. Long gone are the days of “Little House on the Prairie,” and the “Rural Life”. Eleven million people migrated from rural to urban areas between 1870 and 1920, and a majority of the twenty-five million immigrants who came to the United States in these same years moved into the nation’s cities. Americans increasingly moved into cities over the course of the late nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries, a movement motivated in large measure by industrialization.



By 1920, more Americans lived in cities than in rural areas for the first time in US history. (U.S. Department of Commerce, Statistical Abstract of the United States, 1920 (Washington, D.C. Government Printing Office, 1921). In the decades to follow, minus the great depression, male and female workers expanded the ranks of the middle class. Larger incomes and increased leisure time among middle- class workers fostered a culture of consumption and popular amusements in American cities. In the 1990s and continuing even now, there is such a cultural desire for urbanized lifestyle.


Nowadays even the suburbs and rural areas around large cities have become “urbanized”. Which brings us to urban life as we know it know. Spend money, socialize, social media, eating out, family vacations, and disposable everything, has become the urban norm now days. Urban life has become a place of extreme convivence, you should see my uber eats account, extreme dependence, and extreme entitlement.



Urban life is increasingly becoming a culture of ME, ME, ME and fuck YOU, YOU, YOU, the new normal! Urban life is now adversarial at its core. We believe things like, “I can’t stand my neighbors”, even though I don’t know much about them. Or we drive like, “Yes, I see you trying to get over, but this is my fucking lane, and I am going to blow my blow my horn at you, to prove it!”. If my fulfillment means your loss, so be it. Followed by a fake ass smile with “please and thank you”.


So where do we go from here? This is another norm of urban life, the rhetorical question. Asking questions that you already know the answer to. I am superior and if you do not give me the proper answer you are inferior. Oh, you really don’t’ know where we go from here? Well…. I guess you have not REALLY been paying attention to the world around you.

See I am still superior.


Even the fake ass “I’m just kidding” is part of the increasing dualistic and satanic Urban Life now.


So as an answer to the question, “where do we go from here?” I will answer by saying look around you, really look around you with a conscience mind and an open heart. Like rhetorical questions go, you already know the answer to that question. The real question is what are you going to do about it?
