I'm really starting to think that the rural/urban divide is bigger and more profound than the liberal/conservative divide.
Me too and it kinda bugs me because it's hard to articulate in a way that either side understands. Also, rural culture is way different between geographic areas. But in general, there's a freakish kind of cargo cultism on the rural end and there's a freakish kind of class-based inhumanity on the urban end and the two perspectives create an escalating positive feedback loop when they come into contact.
eh, it's a cartoonish dichotomy.  most people live in the suburbs.
:dunno:   Most people are centrists.  The entire liberal/conservative dichotomy is cartoonish.  Both of them are outlooks that focus only on the extremes and ignore the very large middle.  Doesn't ever seem to slow people down though.
first of all, I don't think that's true anymore.  we have media isolation and opinion cluster segregation to the point where there are very few centrists nowadays.

second, even if liberal/conservative were a cartoonish dichotomy, that wouldn't be an argument that urban/rural isn't a cartoonish dichotomy

I can totally get behind hating on suburban assholes.
