"My general feeling about farmers is that they can go fuck themselves." The most recent essay
published in the new online magazine 'The Smart Set
', is a rather contrarian view of rural life, and poses an interesting question: just why does our society have a general consensus that rural=good and urban=bad?
"What do the farmers really believe, anyway? ... Don't they know that the mute indifference of nature is as terrifying and empty as the noisy scrambling of the metropolis?"
