Thing is that sort of thing it’s globally universal. Once one heads out to the rural areas of anywhere they are usually dominated by generations people who have been there for……generations. Imagine that!
And the people who inhabit those areas are usually very similar. Of ethnicity, background and their work and of reasons for being. I know them too. They are in-laws of mine from Idaho. And also farmer relatives of mine from Saskatchewan. They only know their own little world and are reluctant to embrace anything outside of it. I cannot say I “blame” them for anything… it’s just the world that they know and the world that they have always and only known.
