Quoting Layla-and-Faith:" Somewhat, yes. 20 years ago my town was pretty much nothing but woods where everyone knew everyone. Now, ... [snip!] ... there are oodles of houses, buildings, stores ect.. and way, way more people. You hardly even know who lives next door to you."
But do you think that actually makes it less safe, or just FEEL less safe.
As in, whether you know your neighbor or not, they can still rob you. It just depends on who it is.
So now that people don't meet their neighbors they FEEL less safe, but is it truly less safe?
