MtheGM, do you think perhaps that village life is one of the best ways to promote a sense of community among a population? If one is anonymous in a large city, nobody cares or tries to intervene when very bad behaviour occurs. I wonder if there is an optimum number of inhabitants for a successfully functioning society? In prehistoric times, hunter-gatherer groups were tiny, and huge populations unknown. Here, we ALL feel responsible for the children, and for the vulnerably old. Egg throwing just wouldn't be tolerated for one second.
