Because living in more densely populated areas requires more community decision making with regards to land use and caring for community members.

The other, of course, involves orcs

Things I've learned on this board (changing daily!)
1. Black people are "incapable of leading" (Rabbi)
2. South Africa was a "prosperous" and "civilized" country under Apartheid. (Uncensored)
3. Willowtree is going "to vote for Romney because he's white."
4. The 1983 bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut was not terrorism. (Kaz)

I don't know a 'core' reason, but have suppositions:

Cities are the location of most immigrants and minorities. These are folks that need help.

Cities have both the richest and poorest amongst us. Many of the richest really want the poorest to get help and get out of their way. Seriously. They don't want them on the street, certainly not in their parks.

The tendency to find a sense of anomie in cities. With no connections easily made, one looks for stability from government. Can't rely on your neighbors, you don't know them.

Because the more crowded a place is, the less individualistic the people are politically. The go-along-to-get-along mentality is a safety mechanism. When you're surrounded by strangers, people tend to not want to rock the boat.

Just a guess as to one reason.

Quite the opposite. Cities are run top down. Smaller suburbs, villages are run bottom up. The people know what they need, just have to figure out how to pay for it. They tend not to run to the federal government on the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd attempt to get something done.

you must have missed my point. Let's take zoning and land use planning: Governments in densely populated areas are much more involved in zoning and land use restrictions. That's because people living in more densely populated areas have a greater need for an established set of community norms related to the issue.

It's easier to warehouse welfare people in tall buildings than it is to spread them over a large region.
