What do you think were the advantages and disadvantages of living in a small community?
In bygone era, wide range of local inhabitants dwelling in the countryside in which the area is far away from the cosmopolitan city are known one another with their neighborhood. Conversely, the citizens who live in immense city are merely familiar with the people staying in their next doors in this modern era. In my personal point of views, although remaining to live in the rural area has dire consequences as scarcity facilities, the advantage including discovering friendly people and cheap living standard can be obtained.
Living in Countryside has detrimental effect since the scarcity of public services' matter emerge in the village such health accommodation. For instance, modern hospital which is required to accommodate inhabitants' sanitary is not available in the remote village. The government spends their budget only on urban planner and have no program for public services in countryside. Thanks to this circumstance, the inhabitants who have a serious incident shall obtain late respond for medicinal treatment since modern hospital is located in hundred kilometers away from the residence.

Where possible, the government has in charge to construct novel public services in the remote area such as hospital and school in order to develop their living standard.
