I guess I kinda did say that but that actually is not exactly what I intended to say. Your example on top of the fact that the more conservative rural areas tend to increasingly vote for politicians willing to privatize/sell off/develop the resources, and I definitely get your point.
I guess my point is more about math and the observation of the last 50 years where lots of things happened the voting population probably never intended but didn't follow it or appreciate the consequences enough to even try to stop it:
the more concentrated the population X the fewer people who have an appreciation of what gets lost = easier to lose it by the votes of folks who wouldn't necessarily be in favor of raping the land but just don't appreciate it enough for it to be a major voting point for them.
(Although, if the opposite could certainly be true as well where the urbanites actually end up being the ones to save the resource)
