I'd rather live outside the wall.

I'd rather live in the city, but I'll come down to visit.

Too many laws, too many societal rules, too many people. I like simplicity.

I assume that the villagers are there by choice, because were they exiled from the city they would have moved farther away. It could be that the people in the village willingly rejected modernity due to ideological reasons, or they could simply be practicing living history (portraying people from the past to educate others on this lifestyle).

My headcanon: this is some time in a fully automated future society where all basic needs are met and the economies and social structures of the present are basically extinct. Because of this, many people are finally able to do what they want to do with their lives, and in some cases, that means recreating ancient ways of living. So some choose to live on the outskirts of a futuristic megacity, basically living the way their ancestors did many thousands of years ago.

We can't do this today without facing hefty repercussions since labor is, for the most part, not automated and thus humans are required to keep society functioning, hence why we shame those who are lazy or choose not to work. Yet we also have surprisingly regressive ideas on automation, thinking that not working entirely would make us depressed despite the fact that societies with few working hours actually have much higher productivity and happiness and it's in those with much more working hours that the idle tend to be depressed.

Both are happy in different ways.

Nope, the village is certainly unhappy with their lifestyle.
BornOnTheNinth Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2019
It does not appear that way. Their homes and bridges look sturdy, and the ones around the fire especially seem content with their lives.
Yuli-Ban Featured By Owner May 19, 2018  Student Writer
In a world where machines do all necessary labor, people will be allowed to do what they want without feeling depressed. And if they want to live ancient lifestyles, why not? 
Hence why they're probably enjoying this.

Well, the village has to work a lot every day and is probably more susceptible to disease, but working with their hands next to their families and nature is probably a good emotional boost, since we did evolve from animals. The city has abundant food, entertainment, transportation, and jobs that don’t stress the body. However, there is probably a lot of (crippling) depression, since people are often working their jobs, making it hard to stay together as a family and make friends, and since so many luxuries without any work causes a lack of fulfillment.

I'm a huge fan of sci-fi concepts like this. Where there are groups of people in the future who say, "Nah, fuck it." to advancing technologies and pretty much decide to live in a medieval level society. Sort of like the Amish in a way. It gets even better when the two cultures are in close proximity to one another. I'd like to think that the material wealth and high level of technological advancement would start to make the people of the high level society softer, which would necessitate them recruiting people from the medieval society into their military because of how much more rough their lives would likely be. That could make for a very interesting dynamic.

It's arguably a vision of a future where most of our problems have been solved and people can live however they want.  Some people like to live with all the modern conveniences and some just want a simple life.
Yuli-Ban Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2016  Student Writer
Judging by the context, I think this is supposed to be co-existing civilizations, not a class divide.

you may like "The World Inside" by Silverberg. Look to Sky City 1000 that was planned time after the novel, and how similar is to the design here.
