How would it be if a man from a small civilization surviving on interdependence comes and works in a city. I would think he would be totally taken aback at the amount of choices available for every single thing. He would also notice that its really hard to form any real relationship since everyone is competitive and wants something in return. The dizzying value pyramid will impose itself on everything physical and non-physical(relationships etc.).
What would he choose? The close knit relationship network with unity and reduced choice OR this magnificent endless array of choice but much less unity?
