    I didn't have to live in the middle of nowhere, but I chose to. Big cities, while I like to visit them every now and then, make me claustrophobic.

    I've lived in both and I'm going with rural. No contest.

    I would rather live in a big city or a rural area rather than the suburbs(which I live in). You have all the peace and land in the country, and the big city features great attractions.

    I would prefer the suburbs, by FAR over either, but if I had to choose between rural or city, it really is no contest. I HATE the city (I live about 30 minutes from NYC and go there about once every 5 or 6 years, if that). Rural for sure.

    Living in the country sounds wonderful. The country air(till the pig farmer sets up shop a couple miles away and after that everything you own, including your clothes and yourself smell of pig **** and you can never get rid of the smell), the lack of traffic(except dear, which you will hit far too often), the open spaces(until you realize that to go anywhere takes an hour).

    After that, living in the city sounds great. Close to everything(until it takes 15 minutes just to pull out of your driveway...hint: if you live on a busy street, make sure you can turn around in your driveway, backing onto a busy road sucks), businesses handy(until that free enterprising prostitutes and drug dealers start working your area), lots of nice neighbors(until they party loud until 4 am).

    Living in suburban areas gives you almost all the good, with vastly reduced problems. Traffic is not as bad, getting places is still quick, neighbors are handy and nice, but not too close and they don't deal crack, crime is fairly low, air is fairly clean and does not smell of pig ****.

    Cities piss me off because everyone walks too slow, and they don't watch where they're going, and expect me to apologise when the run into me and just bounce off, and there are signs hanging down that I have to duck under, and the communists handing out pamphlets get pissed off when you point out the contradictions in their views, and cities smell. The only bonuses are the food and the Asian chicks in tight jeans.

    Give me a large city with lots of people where people are out walking at all times of the day ( and where you can do the same by walking out of your door without having to drive for 30 minutes)

    It's pretty IMO. Not much beyond that though.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I like the rural better. Small towns are/were great. They exuded true community values. Cities have hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people all living within close proximity of each other, yet they are totally disconnected from each other.
