This research will begin with the statement that throughout the past few centuries the cities have become the centers of life on our planet. From the dirty crowded places which differed from the villages only be a number of dwellers, they have been transformed to the powerful political, social and cultural centers of the Universe how humans know it. The abyss between the mentalities of urban and rural dwellers is becoming deeper with each passing decade so that it's possible that in a couple of centuries there would be more differences between them than the similarities. It's hard to tell who is dominant in the relationship between humans and cities. Are those people, who transform the place of their dwelling in accordance with their apprehensions about the ideal dwelling place, or are the cities the ones that make people desire the things they offer…There are numerous guesses considering this question, but still, nobody has a definite answer to it. Some scientists say that every city is the isolated reality, with its laws, rules, with its own religion and mentality. The main difference between the urban and non-urban spaces is that the villages and towns are places where people live, while the cities are the dwelling places for the crowds. All of those, who live in the cities, subconsciously see the city dwellers as a crowd, and the crowds are cruel; it's the axiom that is fed to them from the early childhood. Thus, the law of the jungle becomes the one and only guiding rule for them....
It's true that most people that dwell in the cities have the same priorities. Most of them desire to be successful, to be better than his/her neighbor, colleague, or a schoolmate. "The images evoked by words being independent of their sense, they vary from age to age and from people to people, the formulas remaining identical". - again, Le Bon, The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind, Book II. The goals of the crowd are common for each individual who is the part of this crowd, and there are kind of trigger words that let the crowd understand what is being said to it. Those words, like "prosperity" and "stability" for capitalistic crowds, or "equality" and "revolution" for the hungry ones, seem to have some hypnotizing power, as the crowd obeys to the one, who uses them correctly and timely.
The crowds are labeled "cruel" because of their attitudes towards the goals setting and reaching. Le Bon tells about the tendency of the crowd to transform the appearing ideas into acts immediately. "A crowd is not merely impulsive and mobile. Like a savage, it is not prepared to admit that anything can come between its desire and the realization of its desire" - he adds.
The ones that don't want to feel themselves the parts of a crowd become the real loners in the cities where millions of people are around. The individual that doesn't share the values and persuasions of the crowd becomes isolated from the society, and it's not that the society rejects him. It's himself who feels terribly lonely among people, knowing that they are unable to understand him and vice versa.
A persuasion exists that the modern world is the reality of consumption, a place where everything can be bought and sold, and where all of
