Limited entertainment possibilities
Inadequate public entertainment
Limited recreational activities
Limited cultural attractions
Uncompetitive rural attractions
Despite the range of leisure facilities, repeated exposure to them reduces their value as entertainment. People, especially young people, then find them frustratingly inadequate and seek for other sources of stimulation.
In urban environments, the scope for alternative forms of leisure is limited, especially for those with limited resources. This encourages the emergence of various forms of deviance, addiction and crime, modelled in part on what is presented by the media as entertainment. In rural environments, there are fewer organized facilities, but the countryside itself is not perceived as stimulating, especially to young people attracted to the excitement of towns.
